How to keep selling out-of-stock products in WooCommerce
For example, if a product has variable items (like in color or size) that are still in stock and you need to sell them.
This feature can be enabled under the Per-Product Inventory Options.
- From the WordPress Admin sidebar, please, navigate to Products and select one item to edit.
- Scroll down below the post editor to find the Product Options panel and click the Inventory tab.
- Check the Enable stock management at product level in Manage stock option.
- There you will see the Allow Backorders setting. Select Allow from the drop-down list and update.
If you wish to continue selling a variable product, you should also verify the stock of each variable item and make sure you have all your variable items linked.
