Stock Scarcity

One of the 40+ apps in VITALS, can be used to let the customers know when a product is in low stock, thus creating FOMO - fear of missing out, and urgency. This, in turn, leads to more sales, as the customers feel the urge to buy, not to miss the great offer.


The app always shows the real inventory level through the [stock] tag, which retrieves the stock from Shopify's API, as Shopify doesn't allow fake information.

As with all of VITALS apps for Shopify Stores, you can control various features on the Stock Scarcity one as well. For example, The Stock Urgency is displayed based on your product's inventory. You can control what pages it is displayed, setting the maximum inventory in the app's settings.
