Diecast Model Centre
I stumbled across this app yesterday and only wish I had done so sooner. Even though we have been keeping discontinued products archived on our Diecast Model Centre store for the benefit of search engine rankings, that is as far as most visitors would go - see an out of stock product and leave our store to visit our competitors. Now, with this app, we have a good chance of offering them something similar and grab that sale before they check out our competitors. Setting up is an absolute doddle, and within a few minutes I had set up our first alternative product. I love the fact that you can set up as many alternative scenarios as you want and apply to each product independently; be it, a discontinued product, a product we choose to no longer stock, a hard to source product that is out of stock etc., the only limit here is your imagination and needs. It's too early for us to assess the results, but I am confident that it will be a benefit to us, so much so, that I upgraded us to the unlimited plan almost immediately and think it will be money well spent. My only question is, how come only 3 other reviews? Everyone who has a changing inventory should be using this app - unless you are one of our competitors . If you'd like to see the app in action, here's a good example on our store: https://diecastmodelcentre.co.uk/products/bmw-x5-diecast-model-car-metropolitan-police-london-armed-police-unit-1-43-scale
This is the ONLY app like this, at least as far as I can tell. I have a popular product that has become obsolete because of the coronavirus. This item brings a lot of traffic, and we won't have the product back in stock at any time in the foreseeable product. But we do have a great alternative item! What to do? This app fit the bill perfectly. We can now redirect this flow of traffic to a very suitable alternative.
Thanks so much for providing your feedback - It’s great to hear how the app is solving this issue for you and your review really helps other stores to understand the benefits that this app sets out to provide.
Thanks again and I wish you all the best.

I just installed the app on our store to direct customers to items that were no longer in stock and/or discontinued. Had an issue at set up but the developer helped me right away and all i s good!
Thanks for sharing your experience. It was a pleasure to assist you earlier and please do reach out again in future, should you have any queries at all. Thanks again.
Great app and even better support from the developer Mat. I found this app while looking for a way to archive old product listings without deleting them. Removing products from collections is only half the battle. This nice little app lets you direct the visitors who find you through outdated links to the products of your choosing. It's easy to use, reasonably quick to set up and should be very effective in terms of increased conversions from this traffic source. Thank you Mat! Great job filling the Shopify void.
Thanks so much for your positive feedback - It's great to hear that the app solves this problem for you. Shortly after writing your review some additional features were released so be sure to check those out.
Please reach out if you need anything at all in future.
