Solved

Hi everyone, 

If a couple of sizes of a product is out of stock, but I plan on restocking, does anyone know an app that allows specific sizes to have a "get on the waitlist" button instead of an "add to cart"?

 

thanks

Hi, @FRNZCLUB.

Thanks for your message, this sounds like a great idea. I could only find one specific app on our store for a product waitlist function: 

- Product Waiting Lists

However, another option you could look into is a pre-order app, which we offer an abundance of. This would of course allow your customers the option to pre-order a product that you intend to have in stock soon. Here are some examples:

- Coming Soon Products Preorder

- Globo Pre-Order

- Storm Pre-Order

These apps are either free or have free trial periods, so I would recommend downloading them first to ensure they can achieve exactly what you want before making your final decision. Alternatively, you could always reach out to a Shopify Expert, who may be able to customize a solution for you.


I hope some of these ideas help you out moving forward, please do not hesitate to reach back out here with any questions!
