OverviewBack to top
If you are a store owner and have some products which are going to be added to your store in the coming days, then you are at the right place! We have developed this extension to set such products as "coming soon" along with the date on which they are going to be launched. i.e this extension allows adding upcoming products/coming soon products to Magento store before their actual availability in your warehouse.
For example if you are selling iPhone on your online store and new model of iPhone is going to be launched in a day/week/month then you can create a product on your store to notify your customers that the new iPhone will be available in your store after specified days in product configuration done by you. So by using this extension on your store, you can inform the visitors that something new and awesome is coming soon :)
The below-listed points describe how the extension works and what it can do:
- While creating such product you will have an option to set it as 'Coming Soon' in 'Availability Status' attribute and a date in 'Launch Date' attribute to specify when the product is available to purchase.
- On the category, search and other product list pages they will be listed as coming soon by adding a 'Coming Soon' tag to the product image.
- On product detail page in the place of product options and add to cart, a countdown timer and interface to subscribe for an email notification will appear.
- The countdown timer will represent how much time is left to reach date set in 'Launch Date' attribute of product and subscription interface will ask for name and email address of the customer.
- Now, when the launch date is reached or you have manually changed product's 'Availability Status' attribute to 'Live' then an email will be sent to all the subscribers of the product.
How this extension can be beneficial to a store
The use of this extension can guarantee below two benefits:
- The product page will be indexed in search engines as you have created the product page in advance before the actual product launch.
- The product will get the interested audience in advance which helps to get the sales quickly.
- Launch product automatically according to date set in 'Launch Date' attribute of product and trigger email to all subscriber with a link to buy the product.
- Ability to control automatic or manual products launch.
- Extension code is intelligent enough to replace countdown with a text message configured in admin configuration if the product is not launched on the specific date.
- Lists all subscription in admin (RedChamps > Coming Soon > Subscriptions) and there email status i.e email for the subscription is sent or not.
The extension settings are located at admin path RedChamps > Coming Soon > Settings
