Should Eden show availability of products?

LoganAshlee. LoganAshlee.
I'm sure we're all subject to products going out of stock -sigh- so do you think it would be a good idea for Eden to show how many of each product is available, so that we don't wait and miss out?

In theory, yes -- I just don't think it's something that EF will be able to do. I seem to remember them posting in the past that it just isn't possible.

It changes too often to really be accurate

Yes..would be nice, but I think other threads asked the same thing and it's not feasible

It would be nice, but it'd be a very difficult task to accomplish accurately.

I agree with the others. While it seems like a great idea, it would be nearly impossible to keep it updated appropriately.

I wish I could know, but I understand why they can't. I believe it was explained thoroughly on an admin board. Though, with extensive inventory technology that updates, I think it could eventually be possible?

We would need a completely new platform for the site before we could entertain the idea of bringing in peripheral software to manage features like that.

Nah, I think it's fine the way it is, they do enough with the site as it is.

I'd love it, but it would be CRAZY. It would take SO much work on their part that, frankly, I'd rather them put towards improving other areas of the site.

Aah I never really thought about how much work it would involve for them - I don't know a lot about technology! I love the site as it is, I just thought I'd throw it out there

If it's not possible, then I understand. If it is possible then they should do it. It is a store. Stores show what's available so you can buy it.

I think this sounds like a good idea

This. I don't really care about the count as long as products are in stock more often than not.

It sounds good in theory but as others have said, it'd be hard. I think it would work better to have a disclaimer on the page when it's getting low in stock.

It's a nice to have but nt a need to have. Even RF devices (and scanners) this would be difficult to ai train on such an active site.

I think it would be nice to have but with so many people ordering things it probably wouldn't update quick enough. I just order an pray I get it without it going on backorder or being discontinued

I would like to see this happen. No, they don't have to show how many they have exactly at all times, but when an item is getting low in stock, I think they should say that, or give an amount. I have seen this done on many other websites.

I feel like giving the exact amount of products available would be really difficult, but it would definitely be nice to have some sort of alert when a product is almost out of stock, that way I know if I should buy it now or risk having to wait a long time for it to come back, if it ever does. Because that's happened to me before, I've decided to wait to buy a product and then like the next day it's out of stock and doesn't come back for like 2 months. Pretty frustrating.

That would be nice, but I don't know how possible it is.

Would be nice, I agree. Some things I would get before others based off of inventory.

Oh god! I imagine that would be insanely helpful! I kept buying things and having them sell out on me.

This is one of those features that I might use, but probably not.

Actually it might make me anxious!
