A backorder is like a rain check for products that are temporarily out of stock. When you want to buy something but it's not available right now, a backorder lets you reserve it for future delivery. Imagine a popular toy sells out at a store, but they promise to get more soon. If you still want it, you can place a backorder, securing your spot in line to receive the toy when it's back in stock. Backorders help you avoid missing out on items you want and help businesses plan how much of a product to produce or order in the future.
