Just the best support

We were trying to find a waitlist product that worked inside a product pop-up.
We tried the WooCommerce waitlist and the woocommerce quickview – no good.
Found this plugin and with some amazing help on chat had it up and running in just a few minutes – exactly how we wanted it to work.
First class.

Great, but needs more included translations

I like the plugin but had to translate it for my german page. Is there a way of submitting translations to the developer for inclusion into the plugin? I could provide a formal (Sie) and an informal (du) translation. I’m pretty sure others already made versions in other languages too.

Btw. for unregistered users (if you don’t allow usage of the plugin for guests) the options are always “Log in” or “Sign up”. I haven’t found a way to translate that.

And the Settings need a translation too.

Let the community help you out!

It’s still a five star plugin to me.


Not only is this an awesome waiting list plugin with full ability to customise and brand your waiting list buttons, colours, text, email messages etc, but the guys at Xootix give stellar support!I received an immediate response through their live chat service when I needed some guidance about installation (this is no reflection on the plugin though) I am new to Woocommerce and the Xootix support guys even went out of their way to assist me with my novice level Woocommerce skills and within 5 minutes I was using the plugin in my store. So even if you’re new to all this like myself, you have everything to gain from supporting Xootix Waitlist and give your customers and your business the best waiting list experience. Ok enough said. Now stop reading this and upload this plugin to your site already!


Their support team was awesome! Responded within minutes and helped fix my issue with customizing CSS. They were even very polite when addressing my mistakes when I didn’t follow directions correctly! Awesome service…awesome plugin! Thanks guys!

Top notch support

We were using a variable plugin to show buttons instead of a dropdown and it stopped the waitlist from working. But with such amazing support they were able to customise the plugin to get it to work. Very reasonable prices for custom work and very quick. Very happy. Thanks so much.
