The Discontinued Products extension for Magento provides an easy, fast, reliable way to ensure you don't waste traffic to old products on your website. It allows you to link a discontinued product to any category, and present alternatives to any customers who land on the product page.
Part of running an e-commerce store is, of course, online marketing. Driving traffic to your site and your products is critical to your success. But, when a product is no longer available, what happens to all those links, blog posts and advertorials you have so dilligently created?
If you are like most online stores, you just remove your discontinued products once they are no longer in stock. And that means that anybody following an old link to your site ends up on a 404 page. This is disastrous - this is a potential customer, and we know exactly which product they were interested in!
This is where Discontinued Products steps in. Rather than leave the user confused and disappointed, Discontinued Products allows you to select alternative products to display to the user.
When a user views a product, the extension checks to see if it is discontinued. If it is discontinued, and is not available to buy, the extension looks to see if an associated category or alternative products has been specified. If so, it selects the top items from that category, according to its default sorting, and displays them to the user along with a message saying the product has been discontinued.
