How do you handle backorders?

My store has a large database of products. Too many to hold in stock at the moment. When a customer orders an item that's out of stock, I'll place an order with my supplier.

Now, this is fine for the size I'm at now with only a few orders per week, but it could get messy when I get more orders.

What I'm looking for, and hopefully someone can point me in the right direction, is an app or workflow that marks orders as "ready to ship" when all items in the order are in stock/assigned to the order. I've been searching the app store for a solution, but I'm not sure what to call it when searching.

 

Anyone?

I would recommend having an app like Stock Sync in order to track inventory. Most suppliers provide SKU's to track this. Slight learning curve to understand how it works.
