  2. Go to Catalog -> Manage Products
  3. Select the product you wish to allow backorders on
  4. mage_gift_product_1

  5. Click "Inventory" in the left menu pane
  6. Find the Backorders section and uncheck the "Use Config Settings
  7. From the dropdown menu select "Allow Qty below 0 and notify customer"
  8. mage_backstock_1

  9. Click "Save"
