This then implies I should set my products to be "Out of Stock" but enable backorders so I have the following settings as shown in the screenshot below:
The issue is that on the frontend the customer still is not able to purchase the product. See screenshot below:
I have tried to reindex and flushed all the caches but still no luck. Could any one advise?
