Posting Rules
This forum was created to help 3dcart users share tips on getting the best out of the service, offer knowledge and experiences about e-commerce in general, and to promote a positive environment in which our merchants can request/dispense advice regarding best practices.

The forum was not created for 3dcart users to submit requests for customer support. Any support related thread will be removed and a support ticket will be placed on your behalf. If you have technical difficulties please visit http://support.3dcart.com.

The 3dcart forum is also not intended to be a medium in which to express dissatisfaction about 3dcart's service, policies or its management and staff. Threads of this nature will also be removed from the forum. If a support issue with your 3dcart store was not resolved in a satisfactory manner; or if you feel that a particular 3dcart offering/policy is not to your liking, please let us know by emailing [email protected] so we can address your concerns directly.

Again, our purpose is to cultivate a positive learning environment for our merchants rather than platform in which to express grievances.

Should you need technical help, please let 3dcart staff help.

* Also, while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently, we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
* You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.
* You cannot post advertisements or notices for contests.

  • Autoresponder for Backordered items

    I wondered if it can be configured so that an Autoresponder message can be sent if an item in a customer's cart is on backorder (after the place the order).

    We set up a status called "Back-ordered" and set it up so that it sends an email as soon as the order status is changed to it.

      Thanks ISGMe -- if I am reading you right, that function is the same as the Waiting List. What I"m looking for is an email that sent when a customer has at least one item in their completed order that is on backorder. The idea being that I can let them know after they place the order that the order may be delayed because of the backordered item.

        Right, Joe. We have it setup so that a "back order email" goes out automatically when an order status is changed to "Back Ordered". We always follow-up with a personal email as well letting them know when it will ship.

          Okay-- now you've lost me. Who is getting an email when a product changes from In Stock to Back-Ordered? Unless you are saying you have someone order TWO of an item you only have ONE in stock and then that email is sent. If that is the case, what if an item is already on Backorder and someone orders one?

          What I'm trying to accomplish is to automate that "personal email" that you send letting them know about when it will ship.

          Thanks

            Sorry about that... The cutomer gets the email but only if we manually move the order (Change the order status) to "Back Ordered". It's a store email that we set up and it only sends to the customer upon changeto that status. So, it's not trigeredby something actually being out of stock, it's triggered by us changing the order staus when we see that something is not available to ship right away.
