westcoast.gifts 101: Live Inventory

Gone are the days when your items are backordered.

Learn all about the new features of our awesome new site through this series, “westcoast.gifts 101”

Gone are the days when your items are backordered. Our online store is now fully integrated to show live inventory! Once your order is placed, inventory is committed to you – even on nights and weekends when the office is closed. Pretty sweet, right?

How it Works

Click on the product of interest and add to cart. Remember, inventory isn’t committed to you just yet (only when the order is placed). Don’t sleep on it too long – it might become out of stock while it’s sitting in your cart!

If an item suddenly becomes out of stock in your cart, your order will not proceed until this is adjusted. All you have to do is look out for the red notifications that tell you which SKUs have insufficient stock, update the quantities and hit “Update Cart”. If there’s 0 left, just click the “x” button on the right hand side to remove the SKU from your cart.

Pro tip: If the item is out of stock, you can click the “Notify when it’s back in stock” button so you get first dibs
