I have been using the free version for almost a year and then upgraded to the pro version because i needed to use the shortcode function. It works seamlessly with several themes (i tried 3-4 themes) and the shortcode function works with Divi/Bodycommerce with som modifications that where provided from author. Hands down one of the best support from any plugin author. Amazing

It looks good, but it's not very good. If you want to translate anything to other language it's a nightmare, probably it's not compatible with WPML, and I tried every option there, string translation, MO/PO files uploaded to the server with my language, cache clearing, and nothing. If your site is in English only, you can skip this part. If your client is loged in, he/she still needs to insert is e-mail by hand. Why??? There is no option to bypass products from this plugin. Some products I don't want to restock, so I donĀ“t want this plugin to appear on those products. I don't want that my client have great expectations about the restocking of that product. I tried other plugins that have that option, so why this option is not here? I remember testing this plugin years ago and everything looks the same, with the same problems and lack of options. It would be ok to include those options in a paid version, but there's no options there for you. Move along.

I thought all I wanted was a back in stock notifier that I could configure to look nice with my theme and let customers know when something was available again. I got that and more. Now I can see which designs in a range have more interest and I can adjust my restock orders to suit the demand. Well done. So worth the time.

Fantastic plugin and support. I looked at several notify/waitlist plugins and found this to be the best for my needs. It's functionality works on archive pages (and not just individual product pages), and the support that I received was excellent. Can highly recommend.
