Show or Shop?
Normally, ecommerce sites sell products based on available quantity. When an item is out of stock, it's not available for purchase. But what's normal doesn't work for everyone. Maybe you don't want to sell any products, but you do want to show them online. Maybe you want to hide prices. Maybe you want to sell all products – or just some products – regardless of stock levels.
Whatever your reasons, here are some alternatives to help you make the most of your ecommerce site:
Sell All Products Regardless of Stock (FREE)
Allow the sale of all items online, without regards to what’s in-stock and available according to Counterpoint. All items will be set to NOT manage stock and thus will always display as in-stock and buyable on your site. Sell All Products Regardless of Stock and other custom mapping files are available on our Extras Store.
Sell Certain Products Regardless of Stock ($450)
Allow the sale of certain items online, without regards to what’s in-stock and available according to Counterpoint. Selected items will be set to NOT manage stock and thus will always display as in-stock and buyable on your site. After flagging the selected items in Counterpoint via a profile field, a custom mapping file is used to mark the items as always in-stock and ready for sale. Sell Certain Products Regardless of Stock and other custom mapping files are available on our Extras Store.
Disable Purchase of Specific Items (FREE)
NRO includes a built-in feature that allows you to disable the purchase of specific items. The In-Store Exclusive feature of NRO allows you to replace the Buy button with a custom message, such as "Only Available In-Store" or "Call 800-555-1234 to Order Today!".
This feature still displays the price, but suppresses the Buy button.
