How to Send Back-in-Stock Shopify Notifications to 2x Sales

Looking for an easy way to send back in stock Shopify notifications for your eCommerce site?

Let’s say that a website visitor loved your product and tried to buy it, but the store was out of stock. As soon as you restock your supplies, you need to send out a notification to that website visitor. This is known as a back-in-stock alert or an inventory alert.

Why? Simple: It’s an easy sell. That visitor already loved your product and tried to buy it. So, you know that they’re definitely interested. A simple push notification can generate a ton of extra sales and drive more revenue to your business on autopilot.

It’s super easy to set up back-in-stock notifications on any website. But it can be pretty confusing if you’re doing it for the first time.

How to Create a Back In Stock Push Campaign

Before we start creating a back in stock Shopify push notification campaign, we need a push notification Shopify app. I recommend using PushEngage to send push notification campaigns.

Step #1: Create a New In Stock Alert

Head over to your PushEngage dashboard and go to Campaign » Triggered Campaigns:

Shopify Triggered Campaigns

Then, select the template for inventory-alert-campaign, click the options button, and click on Edit:

Edit Shopify Campaign

And you should see a new screen to edit your campaign that looks like this:

Edit back in stock alerts

Step #2: Draft Your Notifications

Next, to edit your first notification, click on the arrow mark next to the notification:

Create an inventory alert notification

Then, edit your push notification copy under Notification Look and Design:

As you can see, there are a bunch of custom tags such as {{title}} and {{link}} in the push notifications. These tags are called attributes. We talk about PushEngage attributes in more detail in our article on how to send personalized push notifications with attributes.

In simple terms, attributes help you automatically personalize your back in stock Shopify alerts. They are meant to dynamically fetch your customer’s saved personal details and product details such as the product image, product name, and product URL.

This way, you can send custom push notifications very easily. We’ll talk about setting up the attributes in more detail soon. First, let’s finish up your first notification by adding call to action buttons:

Multi CTA buttons in Trigger notifications

With PushEngage, it’s super easy to create multiple call-to-action (CTA) buttons with different URLs. All you have to do is enable the second push notification CTA by checking Show Second Button.

You can also set a custom Notification Duration:

Notification Duration

Setting a notification duration allows you to terminate notifications when an offer expires. If you don’t set an expiration date to your notifications, they just keep stacking up in your subscriber’s notification center until they see it. At first glance, this can look super spammy and that’s a great way to lose a lot of subscribers very quickly.

When you’re done, click on Trigger Settings and set Trigger Limits for your campaign:

Trigger Limits

Trigger limits make sure that you don’t spam your subscribers. If you set a daily limit of 2, your subscribers will get two push notifications from you in a day at most in a day.

You can also set up UTM parameters to track push notifications more effectively:

The PushEngage Shopify plugin automatically adds the necessary code for your back in stock Shopify alert. All you need to do is activate the campaign when you’re done editing it.

Step #3: Activate Triggered Campaign

Now, all you have to do is hit the ‘Activate Triggered Campaign’ button:

Activate triggered campaign

And you’re done! Your site will now send out automated back in stock Shopify notifications.
