I have searched and tried a lot of combinaison, but can't find how to make it work as I want... Maybe somebody can help me ?

What I would like :
-> "In stock" if product qty > 0 (and "Add to cart" displayed)
-> "Out of stock" if qty =< 0 (and "Add to cart" displayed)
-> "Out of stock" and "Available since xx/xx/xxx" if date that date exists (and "Add to cart" displayed)

Actual general setup :
Enable inventory tracking = yes
Allow negative amount in inventory = yes
Low stock notification threshold = 0
Show out of stock products = yes

Actual product setup :
In stock = 0
Inventory = Track without options
Avail since = 31/05/2014
Out of stock actions = buy in advance

Actual result :
Product is "In stock" + "Available since 21/05/214" + "Add to cart" displayed

Result expected :
Product is "Out of stock" + "Available since 21/05/214" + "Add to cart" displayed

Thanks !

I would also need the same requirement like this. Is there any add on for this or can I pay for this feature ?


I am using the free mode at the moment for my new online business

Recently I find out that , when my product out of stock
I would like to have a new out of stock action
- pre order
- user will see pre order or out of stock as availability
- people will see new description saying that this product is out of stock which you can add to cart for pre order and it will takes xxx days
- user will see add to cart button with availability = pre order / out of stock

I read the forum and saw that cs cart has some add on for out of stock

Any one can give me a hand on this ?

Highly appreciated

Change "Allow negative amount in inventory" = No
Then you can take preorders.

If I change "Allow negative amount in inventory" to "No", the "Add to cart" is not displayed...

Check out:
http://kb.cs-cart.com/buy-in-advance

If you allow negative amounts in the inventory then Pre-Orders, or as CS-Cart calls them "Buy in Advance" is moot. The customer can buy out of stock items anytime, even before they are invented and received.
If I may ask, Why do you want to sell out of stock items?
If you only want to sell Pre-Orders (which are not in stock yet), also make sure that your "Available since" date is in the future. (and you do not allow negative amounts in inventory, so the out of stock status will show up. Actually I don't know if that's true. I've never allowed negative amounts in the inventory - which seems to keep the customer happy.)

You can see my setup in the first post above.

I want to display "Out of stock items" with the "Available since..." date and the "Add to cart button". Because it's true. These articles are currently not in stock but they can be preordered and will be available on displayed date.

Now "In stock" is displayed with the "Available since..." date and the "Add to cart" button. That's not true, articles are not in stock. The "Available since..." date is displayed but clients are focused on the "In stock" displayed in fat green and not "Available since..." date. It works but I think that it's not true because articles are not in stock, it's confusing and source of conflict in case of a longer delivery time.

Any movement on this? I want to take it one step further and have it work on variations.

I have 1 sleeping bag, 3 different sizes, 6 different styles. I get new stock arriving weekly and want to allow a customer to pre-order on a size and style that has run out.

The way it should work in my mind:

If the product variation is out of stock the button should change to a bright warning colour with the text "Pre-order Now" and the availability date next to it.

I've searched but can't find an addon for this.

Cheers

Christine.
