Backorder Addon

***ProductX is becoming WowStore. If you see the new working interface of WowStore, then you can follow along – the working process for product blocks, starter templates, and features all work the same way as it did for ProductX. So, if you’re working with WowStore, you can follow the doc and use the instructions. Essentially, there’s no difference between WowStore and ProductX when it comes to using the product in general.

With the WowStore back order addon, you can set products on backorder that are temporarily out of stock.

How to Use the Backorder Addon?

Before using the addon, you will have to turn it on from the WowStore settings from your WordPress dashboard. Here are some important references to make the product backorder available for use:
