Regarding product availability, there's that little something I don't quite understand.
We have an online store with a few thousand products. Some of those products we don't have "in stock" for proper say, as we have a few local distributors where we can place an order, we receive the stock ~2-7 days later then we ship to the customer.
According to Google product data specifications, my listing should be considered "out of stock", right? So I should use these for the XML feed and the product page;
Google : "out of stock" Schema : "OutOfStock"
The thing is "out of stock" shows an "Ad not ready to serve" in Google Ads console.
Would it be bad, considered malpractice or harm my ad placement if I would use the "preorder" status instead of "out of stock" status for these products?
Google : "preorder" Schema : "PreSale"
In my brain, "out of stock" is something you try to stay away from when you run an online store. No?
