Buyable Out of Stock System (BOSS): Launched
Good news! The Chinavasion IT team continuously work on projects to innovate and improve Chinavasion’s website functionality. This time we have launched the Buyable Out of Stock System (aka: BOSS).
What Is BOSS?
Previously Chinavasion products where taken offline when products went out of stock. While the benefit of this is that we can maintain our promise ‘All products online are in stock,’ this had some inconveniences for end customers as well as drop shippers who want to find the same page and order again. From now on, out of stock products will stay online. The difference compared to in stock product pages is that we will now clearly display the out of stock status below the add to cart button.
The reason for us to launch BOSS is that we believe in transparency. It’s our duty to provide the information such as the stock status as well as when we expect products to be back based on our suppliers communicated lead times.
Here are two main benefits:
- Grab popular products before they are back in stock: some products are simply hot and the supply is not always able to keep up with demand. For this reason, we would like to keep such products online, so you can pre-order them to secure one piece from the next batch.
- Offer clear information to your customers: are you a drop shipper? Then also you don’t have to delist the product from your eBay or Amazon store anymore. Simply provide clear information, and let your customer make the decision for themselves.
