I think this is probably a very simple solution, but I can't seem to figure it out or find it in the forum.
Our website sells variable products with variable product parts in the BOM. IE: T-Shirt design that uses black S-L shirts as the product part.
We're trying to allow backordering (specifically Allow, but notify customer) but can't change the setting in the product variations. Only the product part variations allow us to change it. Even when I do this, our product still shows out of stock (which it is) but doesn't give the option to purchase on backorder.
We're able to replenish stock rather quickly and don't need to make purchase orders. Is the issue from not having any inbound stock?
I hope this makes sense. I know it somewhat defeats the purpose of tracking stock, but for the most part it would be useful for us to be notified something was ordered on backorder and just manage that.
