I am using Magento 220.127.116.11 and am making use of the backorder functionality for products. The default behavior though seems to not function correctly or I am using it wrongly!
If I have a product where there is a stock level of 100, and I have set the backorder option to ‘allow qty below 0 and notify customer’, one would presume that the available on backorder message would only show when the stock level was 0 or less. This does not seem to be the case and even though I have 100 items of the product in stock, Magento is telling the customers that it is available on back order which would probably make them look elsewhere for the product when I have it sat here waiting to sell and ship…
Is this really the default behavior of product backorders or am I missing something here? I don’t want to have to manually set the allow backorders option when the stock level hits 0. I can over ride the core to correct this but again do not want to do this unless it is 100% necessary.
