A Comprehensive Guide to Waiting Lists

Online shopping  can be an extremely daunting task, especially if you are new to this area, but no worries, Ellysage has got you covered!

One question that many of our customers ask us would be – “What are waiting lists and how do they work?” We are here today to help you answer that question!

So imagine this scenario... One fine day you were itching to shop and you decided to check us out ( to get a new top for yourself! And you saw this top below!

This beautiful Abihail Lost in the Forest Pullover can be found only at Ellysage!

However, a few seconds later, you realise that... most unfortunately, it already got SOLD OUT. (Sold out items have a little blue tab on the main page, as can be seen in the photo below).

No longer the "blue screen of death", but the "blue tab of death". Boooo!

But, before you get emotional about not being able to get what you wanted so much, we are here to tell you that not all is lost! Click into the product and you will see that you can still join our Waiting List

What happens when you join the waiting list is that you have just enrolled yourself to be notified when this item is restocked or becomes available for purchase via backorders. The sooner you join the wait list the better, as our system notifies the waiting list according to the time of joining the wait list! 

See that button on the right side of the page? Just click there to join the waiting list!

Furthermore, if there is a significant demand for the product (judged by the length of the waiting list), this urges our team to restock the item as soon as possible, so that our customers can get what they want! So adding your email towards the waiting list acts like a "vote" to restock the item! :) 

So before you get upset about not being able to get your favourite items, do remember to join the waiting list! It's a super simple process! Just click on the "SOLD OUT, Join Waiting List" button. You will then be directed to a page to leave behind your name and email, and that's all you need to do to be on the waiting list!!!

Hesitate no more, click me!!!
