Montreal-based Shopify experts cooking some Shopify apps.
I would really like to be able to have a storewide sale (discount storewide) say its everything is 50% off, however all backorder items remain full price - so when the quantity is below 0 customers can still order but the full price will apply.
This would be "possible" using the "Automated Collection". You created an Automated Collection with the following rule:
Then, inside the Discounts section, you create a collection specific discount for this new collection.
Inside our Automatic Discount app, you create a rule based either on the number of items in cart or the cart amount. It's up to you. This rule is what fires/triggers the discount. But the discount itself will only apply on items in your new collection.
You could even add an additional restriction inside the discount rule based on the Vendor or Product Type.
Therefore, when the quantity is below 0 customers can still order but the full price will apply.
Make sure your products inventory policy is to allow selling backorder items with 0 inventory
