About Product Waiting Lists

Wait.li product waiting lists help your business grow product demand, gauge customer interest, create exclusivity on Shopify.

Wait.li enables you to...

  • Gauge customer market fit for a new product
  • Release a product to only a set number of customers
  • Collect valuable emails while working on your next product
  • Create a veil of exclusivity around your products
  • Show social proof (# of customers on waiting list) and grow demand for your product

How It Works

  1. Create a waiting list via the app's super simple creation page.
  2. Once created, any customer that navigates to your specified product page will be shown a "Join Waiting List" button instead of the typical "Add To Cart" button.
  3. Once the customer clicks "Join Waiting List", they are prompted with a minimal popup modal that asks them to register / sign in to a store account. Once registered, they are added Wait.li's database and are sent an email confirming their registration on the waiting list. They are not able to purchase the product until they are activated from the Wait.li waiting list.
  4. When you are ready, activate your customers via Wait.li - after a customer is activated, they are sent another email including a link to purchase your product. Simple as that!

NOTE - Only customers that are activated via the app are able to purchase the product. All other customers are still unable to purchase your product (unless you disable the waiting list).

This app is wonderful. We use it to create "early access" lists for upcoming product launches. It helps us control the flow of traffic to products. I would definitely suggest trying it out! Patrick, the developer, is also a pleasure to work with. He is very responsive to my requests.
