For those products that can be back ordered set this to "unlimited".

For those products that cannot be re-ordered select "Limited To" and enter your stock quantity.

All that is missing from Ecwid is a label that says "On backorder" when the quantity reaches zero, similar to "out of stock". Perhaps some custom javascript would do the trick in the meantime.
Not exactly, the Unlimited disregards the in stock quantity, basically disables the inventory tracking on that particular product, so it just continually says "in stock" on the storefront. I'd like to be able to have it say "0 available" when its out of stock, but still allow people to order it.
