The Waitlist plugin allows you to track the demand for out-of-stock items and automatically notify customers when a product becomes available for purchase. By making a waiting list of people that wants the out-of-stock items, you can notify them easily when it is in stock and record who has been notified about which product. It also allows you to identify most wanted products to prioritise re-stocking. You can allow customers to review & edit their waiting lists from the “Your Waitlists” tab in their account.

You can customise this plugin by changing the notification emails, the waitlist button, and the “Your Waitlists” tab in customers’ account.

You get options such as to display opt-in elements when users are signing up to a waitlist, display waitlist buttons on pages such as the shop page/product category page, to add tracking codes to the emails, to email the admin when a customer joins a waitlist, to have a minimum stock number before the in-stock notifications are sent to the customers.
