With a back in stock notification form, customers can let you know if they want to be informed when a sold out product becomes available again. When a customer uses the form to submit their email address, you will be sent information about the product that they are interested in. When more stock becomes available, you can let the customer know.




Note: If a product has variants, then each variant must be sold out for the form to appear on the product page. To use a form that appears for sold out variants, even when other variants for the same product are available, you will need to install a free or paid back in stock app from the Shopify App Store.



Sectioned and non-sectioned themes



The steps for this tutorial differ depending on whether you are using a sectioned or a non-sectioned theme. A sectioned theme is a newer theme that lets you drag and drop to arrange the layout of your store's pages.


To figure out whether your theme supports sections, go to the theme's Edit code page. If there are files in the Sections directory, you are using a sectioned theme. Non-sectioned themes were released before October 2016, and do not have files in the Sections directory.


If you are using a sectioned theme, then click the Sectioned themes link and follow the instructions. If you are using an older, non-sectioned theme, then click the Non-sectioned themes link and follow the instructions.
