-- HikaShop version -- : 3.4.0
-- Joomla version -- : 3.8.8
-- PHP version -- : 7.1
-- Browser(s) name and version -- : Chrome
-- Error-message(debug-mod must be tuned on) -- : Order products out of stock

I suggest that in futures updates of hikashop you can add the option of order products out of stock. In some cases, because the specificities of the product, or his high price, the sellers don't have the product in stock. The product is only available with client order. This is not so strange in online selling. At this moment, to do this, the only way i see is add stock (even if the product don't have) because otherwise the add to cart button is not shown.

By definition HikaShop can't sell out of stock products.
You can find a lot of threads talking about that and you will find always the same answer : HikaShop do handle the stock quantity and do not authorize a negative value. Otherwise you must not handle the stock and let the quantity "unlimited".

Now please note that there is a plugin in the marketplace which allow "pre order" products :
