FooSales Now Supports Backorders


We’re excited to share that we’ve recently released native support for backorders in WooCommerce so you can now sell products on backorder in-person through the FooSales POS apps.

Before you can start using the new backorder functionality, please update the FooSales WordPress plugin (1.37.7+) AND FooSales iPad App or FooSales Android Tablet App (2.13.4+) to the latest versions.

How to setup backorders

In order to allow products to be sold on backorder, first ensure that you have enabled “Enable stock management” in WooCommerce at a global level (WooCommerce > Settings > Products > Inventory).

Products Tab Inventory
The “Manage Stock” Global Setting Must Be Enabled In The Product Tab

Next, check that “Enable stock management at product level” is also set for each product that you would like to support backorders in the ‘Inventory’ product data tab. Finally, ensure that the “Allow backorders?” drop-down is set to either “Allow” or “Allow, but notify customer“.

Stock Management Must Be Enabled At A Product-Level And Backorder Support Must Also Be Allowed

The FooSales POS apps will allow you to place orders for products that are on backorder if everything is configured correctly.
