We have the same issue and need this feature badly for a customers integration of Shopify. Are there even plans to support this? It has been 2 years since this issue was first raised

We also have this same issue. This is desperately needed.

+1 for also needing this. 

 

Main reason: If you have any products in your store that are set to 'Keep selling when out of stock' so you can take Pre-Orders and Backorders, it creates major problems for 3rd party sales channels like Amazon and EBay.  We use a Pre-Order app to properly communicate backorders to our customers on Shopify before they place an order, but these channels have no way of knowing that the product is on back-order and so will take orders as if the product is in stock.  People who order on Amazon/EBay are not expecting any delay in shipping so they will almost always cancel their order once they learn the item is backordered and in turn leave a bad review.

 

With API access, a 3rd party app could automatically unpublish products from Amazon/Ebay when they go out of stock and solve this major problem for us.

 

Alternative: Please make the 'Keep Selling When Out Of Stock' setting channel-specific in Shopify so we could turn it off for those channels, and no 3rd party app or API access is needed to solve this particular problem.
