Why this extension?
This 2 in 1 module recommends looking for similar items when product is out of stock and disables the Add to Cart Button and replace it with Out of Stock (On Product Page Only).
This does not show for products that are in stock.
(This Demo shows the recommendation links but not Out of stock button)
Once you click the recommendation link the module then searches the store for other products with the same model number or product name that are in stock
This ensures that the customer lands on the exact same products that they were interested in, this time in stock so they can happily make a purchase. (Currently set to Model Number, hit Get Support and I will update with product name for free.)
This notice can be potentially be added anywhere on the product page.
This module is especially great for multi-vendor environments where you have vendors selling the same items or if you use a single model number scheme for all items in a category instead of the real model number - For example, all laptops regardless of brand would have the model number: STORE-LAPTOP (Just an example)
This module was made in .ocmod format so it doesn't override core files
This module was tested with the default 3X theme only
Works with multi-store
For custom theme or personal adjustments, please contact us, we charge a small fee.
