  • Can Customer choose to ignore out of stock items?

    I'm considering turing on the Waiting list Feature - but that will always display ALL out of stock items.

    Due to the nature of my business I usually only have 1 of an item in at a time and do sometimes get it in again, but it may be days, weeks or months. (I purchased inventory from out of business craft stores - so I never know what I'll have from day -to-day).

    However - I think this feature would really help increase sales in the long run

    But- in my cross stitch category I only have 2,900 in stock items out of a total number of over 9000 items! That means that only 33% of the items the customer views will be in stock.

    So - if they aren't interested in paging through item after item after item of things that aren't instock - I would like to have the ability for them to delete those from the search criteria.

    Ideas?

    I'd like the same feature--search by availability

      rrw - did you see it in the Settings area? It's there - but I don't actually see it used when you search my manufacturer. Is that your experience also?

      For this question tough - I just would them to keep all same sorting but be able to say - "Don't include Out of Stock Items in my Search" - like a check box next to the order by or something.

      An ADVANCED SEARCH screen would really be nice so customers could be creative in their searches.

        I saw that in your other post, but I don't really use the "browse by manufacturer"--all of my items are essentially from the same one. I would like to see just a general setting, "show me what is in stock" per category, or something like that.
