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.

Please note that by default in the Cornerstone theme, the add to cart button is hidden on products that are out of stock so a theme modification may be required when this option is selected to ensure the button remains visible.

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.
