Stop losing sales when inventory runs out

Featured on a blog? Cracked that Adwords campaign? Your store can see a surge of visitors in moments. Awesome! But what if your inventory sells out?

Don’t lose sales when your inventory runs out. Back in Stock makes it easy for customers to sign up for a back in stock email alert. When you restock products the waiting customers are emailed automatically to bring them back to your store and complete the purchase.

It’s simple to setup and runs automatically.

Measure demand, not just sales

It’s something every store owner needs to know: what items do my customers most want to buy? We can help.

Use the Back in Stock dashboard to immediately see what items customers want to buy. Or receive daily or weekly reports about which items are most in demand and the quantity you need to order.

Increase your profits by knowing rather than guessing what customers want.

Simple setup

Installation takes less than 30 seconds. Simply hit Get App and a button saying ‘email me when available’ will immediately appear on all relevant product pages.

This button automatically connects to a Back in Stock pop-up form that has a field for email address and a drop-down menu for product variants.

There’s no need to edit an email template or pay for tech support. Simple!

Effortlessly scalable

Back in Stock regularly sends out about half a million emails a month – we can handle volume.

You don’t need to do anything special if you’re a large store installing the app. Just feel confident that it will work at scale and that it will continue to work in the future.

Powerful customization

Although our default button and pop-up form convert well, we appreciate that you want them to integrate seamlessly with your store. We make this as easy as possible. You can:

  1. Use your own custom button image (any image in PNG, JPEG or GIF format can be used)

  2. Change the copy on the pop-up form (particularly important if your audience are not English speakers!)

  3. Change the design of your pop-up form using CSS

  4. Superpower the back in stock form provided by Mobillia, Responsive, Retina and Parallax themes with our one-click install process

  5. Get customers to opt in to your mailing list at the same time they enter their email address if you use MailChimp, Campaign Monitor, Klaviyo, or Constant Contact

  6. Create custom integrations if you are a developer using our Javascript API

Super fast email delivery

About 60 seconds after you update your catalogue, your customers will receive an automatic email alert telling them that the item they want is back in stock.

This means that if you are running a sale, or simply sell and restock quickly, then you should see a much higher conversion rate. Time is money!

Super friendly and experienced support

If you’ve got questions, before or after installation, just drop an email to support@backinstock.org. We’ll get back to you quickly by email, and we won’t use tech language unless you do.

Back in Stock is created by Yellow Robot. We’ve been in business since 2009, and we specialise in providing apps for Shopify users. We’re not going to disappear or leave our app to become outdated or insecure.

If you’re looking for a scalable, stable and supported app you can rely on us.

This app is very useful if you own an online boutique, or any online store for that matter. It is very customizable and easy to use.
Get this app if you want to retain customers (which, why wouldn't you?). What I love most about it is the fact that you can link your mailing list and customers have the opportunity to join your list while signing up for a restock notification.

If you would like to see a demo check out my site DopeFein.com and click on any item that is out of stock!

I gave 4 stars because although I do find it very useful, it is a little pricey, especially when it becomes necessary to upgrade your billing package.


Really useful app that allows us to let customers know when products they are interested in are back in stock - has led to more sales!


Couple of issues; when I was at free I thought me going over to a paid plan would be the better options due to the limitations. Well from Free it goes to $19 thats literally the first option. There is no way to downgrade and there is no lower price than 19. Its a great app and the features are super cool. Especially when you create something like I have where they click notify when back in stock. I just dont like the no lower plan situation


Awesome app support and customer service. Matt took the initiative by helping me install a button as the app did not seem to integrate with my new shopify theme on Mobile.

I've been using this app since last year and it's been very helpful especially on having a good gauge on how much to re-stock for sold-out designs. My customers certainly love receiving the email notification when their fav item is back in store as well. Thanks Team!


CON: This app is pretty cool...but honestly, it's expensive. I hate the idea of paying $40 a month for 500 out of stock notifications. For 40 bucks it should at least be unlimited. The Back in Stock monthly fee is almost half what I pay monthly for my entire Shopify platform. It's a great app buy why is it so costly to perform an automated, relay task.

PROS: It's easy to install and modify. Looks great.


Nice little app. Has always worked well and does exactly what it is supposed to. Recommend getting this app if you are looking for a way to notify customers when a product is back in stock


Great App. Hope to be able to customize it soon.
