We now offer a variety of tools that better enable you to manage item listings by stock and availability! With our Availability Tracker, you can set up an alert that will notify you by email and/or text message when a product is back in stock. Additionally, you can now filter search results by availability as well.

How to use the Availability Tracker:

Locate the listing that you'd like to set up an alert for (this will likely be a hard to find item that's currently on backorder!) From the menu across the bottom of the listing, click on Track:

To select how you would like to be notified, you may choose from your existing communication methods, or click on Create on the right side to add new communication method:

You may then choose one or more vendors to be notified for when this item comes back in stock! As soon as Vetcove detects that a selected vendor changes their stock from unavailable to available, you'll receive a notification via your selected communication method(s).

You can view and manage all of your active alerts from your Shopping Lists page by clicking on the Tracked Items shopping list:

How to filter by availability:

To filter your search results based on availability, simply click on one or more of the filters under Availability (on the left hand column) to turn them on. You can filter by one or more availability statuses: out of stock, on allocation, drop shipped, special order, or in stock.

Please note that on occasion, the availability filter may display a listing that is out of stock for your vendor account, due to differences in warehouse availability. To view more details about availability, please hover over the truck icons on the item listings directly.
