Product Waiting Lists

Wait.li product referral waiting lists help your business grow product demand, gauge customer interest, and create hype around your product launch with referral codes allowing customers to jump up spots when they invite their friends!

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
  • Add list limits, limiting the amount of people that can join your waiting list (more exclusivity!)

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).

    I'm getting mad since the join waiting list button always be there even if I deactivate the status! I have tried to contact support for help, but nobody replies to me! I need to make the product to normal selling. But now, every new customer only see the waiting button instead of add to add button!

    This app caused a lot of issues with our live store – it removed our product images as well as disabling features and adding random things to our product pages that have nothing to do with waitlists. Would recommend trialling this app on an inactive theme. Thankfully Yusuf was very quick to reply and help us talk through the issues.

    Hi! Sorry about the unintended visual changes but so glad that Yusuf was able to resolve everything! The app requires adding code to the product page which, in some themes, can cause issues with various elements. These are usually super quick fixes, but as you mentioned it is best to install the app first on a development theme! In fact, I will work on adding a feature to allow users to select the theme to install onto now :)

    Thanks for your feedback and glad everything is working now!
