I have a simple question here I suspect - never had a need for this before. But I have products that I am tracking inventory on - and I know there is a backorder status type - which tells me the cart should allow people to add to cart if inventory is not all there somehow, so how does this work

I am tracking with options - and my option has 2 items - I know I got 5 more coming at the end of the week, so I want to allow someone to buy 4 - is this possible or is it only going to allow 2 and then out of stock?

thx all

Did you try Admin- Settings

Allow negative amount in inventory checked?
