Measure And Grow Demand

Waiting lists / queues allow you to gauge customer interest and grow it immediately with legitimate social proof.

Exclusive Product Launches

Wait.li gives you the capability of releasing a product to a certain set of customers. Use to launch to an exclusive set of customers.

Increase Sales

Customers on a waiting list are itching to try your product. When it's ready, activate them as you choose and watch the sales fly in.


About Product Waiting Lists

Wait.li is the perfect tool for business owners who want 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

Wait.li helps your business grow product demand, gauge customer interest, and sell more on Shopify with product waiting lists.

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).

Constant Updates & Improvements

  • We work side-by-side with store owners to implement features and bug fixes quickly
  • Have a feature request? A general suggestion? Let us know and we'll put a plan in action to implement it into Wait.li ASAP

August 2019 Update

  • (OPTIONAL) First & last name no longer required on customer registration
  • (OPTIONAL) Send customers directly to checkout using Shopify permalinks
  • (OPTIONAL) Disable the Wait.li branding in emails sent to customers (Professional/Enterprise plans only)
  • When a customer is activated from a waiting list and sent the activation email, clicking the button in that email now opens the product page with the "Sign In To Purchase" popup active, meaning less friction for your customer to sign in and purchase the product.

We love the app! First, it was so easy to install and set up. Second, Patrick is nothing short of AMAZING. We had a few questions, and he was very prompt to message us back. He even made a few tweaks to help Waitlist integrate seamlessly with our store and brand! We are excited for the upcoming update that will be releasing also.

Thank you so much! I really appreciate hearing how the app helps your business, and I'm super glad that I was able to help you integrate with your new theme design (which looks lovely).

I reached out to Patrick about an issue and not only he responded in less than 5 minutes, but he also went above and beyond to accommodate a custom-made solution, all of it in no time (literally). Very professional customer services, I highly recommend working with him.
