extra stock option in woocommerce

When you need to add an extra stock option in woocommerce i.e. “request to buy” “on request available” etc.  then simply you need to make a tweak. just add this code in functions.php you are done. simple!

/*adding stock option*/

function add_custom_stock_type() {
    <script type="text/javascript">
    woocommerce_wp_select( array( 'id' => '_stock_status', 'wrapper_class' => 'hide_if_variable custom-stock-status', 'label' => __( 'Stock status', 'woocommerce' ), 'options' => array(
        'instock' => __( 'In stock', 'woocommerce' ),
        'outofstock' => __( 'Out of stock', 'woocommerce' ),
        'onrequest' => __( 'Available to Order', 'woocommerce' ), // The new option !!!
    ), 'desc_tip' => true, 'description' => __( 'Controls whether or not the product is listed as "in stock" or "out of stock" on the frontend.', 'woocommerce' ) ) );
add_action('woocommerce_product_options_stock_status', 'add_custom_stock_type');

function save_custom_stock_status( $product_id ) {
    update_post_meta( $product_id, '_stock_status', wc_clean( $_POST['_stock_status'] ) );
add_action('woocommerce_process_product_meta', 'save_custom_stock_status',99,1);

function woocommerce_get_custom_availability( $data, $product ) {
    switch( $product->stock_status ) {
        case 'instock':
            $data = array( 'availability' => __( 'In stock', 'woocommerce' ), 'class' => 'in-stock' );
        case 'outofstock':
            $data = array( 'availability' => __( 'Out of stock', 'woocommerce' ), 'class' => 'out-of-stock' );
        case 'onrequest':
            $data = array( 'availability' => __( 'Available to Order', 'woocommerce' ), 'class' => 'on-request' );
    return $data;
add_action('woocommerce_get_availability', 'woocommerce_get_custom_availability', 10, 2);

Please note: It only works on simple products, not on variable products.

Update: this code is not working with latest Woocommerce. Please use this plugin.

    Hi there,
    I am looking to implement this but there is a note to say that this code no longer works with latest WC versions and refers to a plugin. However the plugin says it hasn’t been tested with last 3 releases of WP so i would prefer not to use it. Has there been any further updates to this subject? Any more compatible solutions?
