One of the many challenges the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has resulted in is with supply chains and changes in demand for the stock. As soon as the first outbreak started, there was a scale back production significantly. In some cases halting it entirely, this wreaked havoc on merchants, affecting all the retailers.
As people across the world started panic buying and hoarding, there was a huge surge in demand. Items such as toilet paper, hand sanitizers, cleaning supplies, and groceries are among some of the hardest hits.
This double impact on retailers has left many items out of stock, with consumers desperate to know when they will be available again. To further aggravate, small and medium-sized businesses often don’t have the same power to secure additional supplies as their larger counterparts.
Being unsure as to when they will have products back in stock, many merchants are clueless and worried about how to handle the situation. It is especially true when you spend so much effort on convincing customers to purchase from you and crafting the perfect customer experience.
While supply chain issues are likely out of your control, there is one thing you can do right to help keep your customers informed and provide a great experience with Shopify back-in-stock notifications.
What back in stock notifications are and why they’re important
Don't you know that you can raise to 70% of customers' conversations with back-in-stock alerts?
