The single most powerful sales tool I have after word of mouth. I have a hacked up osC shop with the following as one of the hacks.
-My Add to Cart button switches to a mini product notification box when we’re sold out of an item.
-Product Notifications is set to send an email when stock goes from zero to anything greater announcing to each customer on the list that the item is back in stock.
-Customers come in droves and buy!

When I do major inventory updates, I have huge days. It’s an awesome and free tool. The only downside I have is that it’s tied to a customer being registered and logged into the system. It should be easier like just tossing their email address into a box and hitting a button. I’d probably get three times the number of sales since many folks won’t sign up to get notifications. It’s beyond my coding ability right now so I’ll ask to see it in Magento instead! Folks, this really is an amazing tool.
