Product Wait List

Question

Can we add "wait list" option?

Is it possible for us to add a feature to our site that will allow people to enter their email if they'd like to be notified when an item or size is restocked?

Answer

Jackie,

Something like this is already implemented on your new website. For example, you can see this feature by going to the following URL (I just picked some random old product):

http://www.rosietrue.com/shop/shoes/RST00989

As you can see the visitor is asked to signup for your mailing list.  This feature does not automatically notify the person when that individual product comes back in stock.  We decided not to implement this feature in this manner because very few of our customers have products that come back in stock like this.  Very often the products are here for a month or season and then gone forever.

We have done some fancy stuff like this in Magento but we have not yet brought them to HipCommerce.  What do you think?  Does this at least help you in some way?
