If you’ve had a popular product sell out and you aren’t doing anything to capture those still visiting the product page, you’re leaving money on the table.
Here are a few easy tactics that you can put in place in just a few minutes.
In order to provide your shoppers with a positive user experience, let’s take a look at ways to make even your sold-out product pages profitable.
This lets your shoppers know straight away how much of the product is in stock, and if it’s getting close to selling out. This may also help create a sense of urgency when stock numbers are getting low!
Some shopify themes automatically display a ‘sold out’ message over sold out products in both the collection page and product page. These make it nice and easy to see it’s unavailable at a glance.
This helps with the SEO side of things, but make sure the redirect makes sense. You don’t want to frustrate people by redirecting to a product that is quite different to the one they came looking for. If the new product is better than the sold-out one, make sure to mention that and highlight it in the description!
Let people leave their email and contact info if you’re planning to restock the product. Don’t give them false hope by capturing their email if you don’t plan on restocking the product.
