The ability to get notification when an out of stock item becomes available is a very common one for an e-commerce site. In an effort to launch in time for the holiday season, we had to put this feature off. We didn’t think that we would need such a feature so soon. To our pleasant surprise we had real trouble keeping a lot of our merchandise in-stock. We’ve already had to replenish our inventory several times. It’s hard to believe that it’s only about 2.5 months since we launched!
So in the last couple of days I spent some time and whipped together our “in-stock” notification feature. In an event that an item becomes out of stock, there is now a way to add your email to be notified when it becomes available again. This feature was released early this morning.
