Designing the sign up form
We offer a variety of ways to customise the look and feel of the app without the need for custom code.
Enable sign-up form
To get started with our app, click the "..." and enable the sign-up form.
Show in modal
When selected, a "Notify me when available" button will be shown on products when out of stock. Clicking this button will show the signup form in a model or "lightbox".
If this option is unchecked, then the sign-up form is shown immediately on product page.
Quick view support
Note that we also provide support for customers signing up for stock alerts from within the quick view on out-of-stock products.
Hide add to cart button
By default, the modal button and form are shown beneath the add-to-cart button. If you choose to "Replace the add to cart button", the add to cart button will be hidden.
Show name fields
Optionally, you can configure the sign-up form to collect the customer's name, either first name only, or both first and last name.
Show newsletter signup
When you enable newsletter subscriptions, customers can also give marketing content to be subscribed to the newsletter. When they give permission, the app will then update the newsletter subscribers list within BigCommerce. Subscriber information is also available to download within the Customers section of the Back in Stock Alerts app.
Change form text
Within the Form Design section of the sign-up form settings, you can choose your own text that is shown within the form.
Change button styles
You can also choose to customise the sign-up button. We recommend updating the button class to match one from your theme as the quickest way to achieve this. This defaults to
button button--primary as per the Cornerstone theme.
Alternatively, you can override these styles with some custom color settings.
Hide form on certain products
You can provide a comma-separated list of SKUs to hide the sign-up form on select products.
