    I think the message “Can be backordered” is really confusing for our customers so I would like to remove it. I cannot see any real use for it or am I missing something?

    Is it possible to remove the message entirely?

  • Hi there,

    “Can be backordered” means that you allow your customers to place the orders for the product even if it’s out-of-stock.

    If you prefer not to allow backorder for the products, make sure at Products > Edit Product > Product Data > Inventory > Allow backorders? option, choose Do not allow.

    If you allow backorder but simply do not want the word “Can be backordered” shown on the screen, select Allow.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks. I think I’ll just change the translation so it works for us.
