Back In Stock Wizard: Complete Feature List

Back In Stock Wizard is a full-featured app for BigCommerce that allows you to capture sales that may be lost due to stockouts. By using Back in Stock Wizard, when an item's inventory level drops to 0 a subscription box is placed on the item page to collect a shopper's email address so they can be notified when the item is once again available for purchase.

Back In Stock Wizard Feature List

  • Intuitive, uncluttered dashboard, that shows just the data store owners we polled want to see in a glance including:
    • Number of customers currently with active notification subscriptions
    • Number of products that have notification subscriptions
    • Number of back-in-stock emails sent
    • Number of notification subscriptions set to expire (by default, subscriptions are kept active for two years if no inventory activity has taken place on the item)
    • Number of inactive notification subscriptions (subscriptions for items that have since been removed from the store)
    • List of the most recent notification subscriptions
    • List of the most popular products people are signing up for back-in-stock notifications
  • Subscriber report that lists all customers currently subscribed to one or more notifications. Click to reveal which items they are currently subscribed to!
  • Product report that lists all products that currently are out-of-stock and have notification subscriptions pending.
  • Real-Time inventory so once an item's stock is replenished, Back In Stock Wizard immediately sends out notifications to subscribers. Other apps may poll once an hour, or once a day, while we poll continually!
    • It's important to note that you do not need to be using "actual" inventory in BigCommerce to use Back In Stock Wizard. If you're not using quantity-based inventory, simply ticking the "Inventory" box on your product will activate/deactivate the subscription form as long as the quantity is set to zero.
