FEATURE 2012.5: Customer Notifications When Out Of Stock Items Become Available

Increase anticipation, and sales for out of stock items with the new “notify me” features…

Customers can now sign-up to receive a notification whenever an out of stock product becomes available to order again. Works with both standard and variant inventory, through variant matrix. Also the text on the notify me link and button within the sign-up form can be overwritten using store text. Featured is turned off by default for existing stores, and turned on by default for new stores.
