#AskEden - Why is half the site out of stock?! Much worse than usual.

Dawn (Lilac Distraction) Dawn (Lilac Distraction)
I was sitting here thinking of things I wanted for a recent order and going through my wish lists. Everything on my Must-Have list except for the Eleven was out of stock. Half of my "kinda want" list is out of stock, as well as a bunch of the "hmm . . . maybe" pile. All of my discontinued stuff is in another wishlist so doesn't include any of that.

It's not usually this bad. I know it's a pretty common thing, but it's not usually on this level and it has me kind of curious.

Is there any reason why it's like this? I know that we've had some sales lately, but a lot of the stuff wasn't included.

Everybody go look at your wishlists and see how much of it is out of stock at the moment. Seem a little worse than normal?

Oddly, it seems like there's more stuff on my wishlists in stock than normal. My entire "pending" wishlist is available, so I should make an order tonight.

I've got a few things on my list that has been out of stock SINCE I PUT THEM THERE! Months ago... okayy maybe not months... but weeks ago! And I agree, a LOT of my wish list items are out of stock, more so than normal. Maybe EF has just been selling a lot more than normal lately?

I noticed my wishlist being mostly out of stock items today. I was placing a pretty big order and wanted to get some stuff from my list. Couldn't, really.

I haven't been on in ages (no Internet connection at my new dwelling just yet) and I haven't even gone to look at any of my lists.

It's pretty depressing isn't it??
I hate when I really want something and it is out of stock or discontinued.

I have a few things that just CAME into stock a few days ago! I think that a lot of it is people ordering extra things that aren't on sale to 'round out' their order and get free shipping.

Maybe it's because of the Spring sales. I don't know. I just know that I have a list of stuff I really want and plan on buying once my birthday gift card arrives. I hope what I want doesn't go out of stock before then!

If EF would stop having so many sales, things would stay in stock longer!

Wait...what am I saying!?

Seriously, the sales have been non-stop all year, and who can resist them? I have already made two orders in April, and I had intended to take a month off of shopping to save up points. It hasn't happened yet.

A lot of the stuff that are on my wishlist are also out of stock or have been discontinued. It makes me all sadface. A lot the items that I have really, really been wanting have been out of stock for weeks. Two items finally came back yesterday and I ordered them up quickly before they went out of stock again.

I know when I talked to customer service about two companies in particular, (Spartacus & Ruff Doggie Company) they said that most of their products will be back in stock on May 2nd.

I hope that gives you a little bit of hope!

Only one of the items in my Top 11 (I can never seem to stop at ten...) is in stock. I know some of the things (like a caramel colored VixSkin, and the Realdoe) just always sell out quickly. And Phallix stuff is stocked on a slower schedule than other things because it's expensive. Okay, and then I should be fair, one is a book that hasn't been stocked at all yet, and one is a harness color that won't be produced again for a few more months, and then two things are from Spartacus (thanks for that update, Double L! ) So I'm sure everything else will be back soon too. And hey, having only a few of what I want in stock at any given time makes it a lot easier to ration my cash!

I'm having the same problem! Not only with toys, but the plus size lingerie... it goes so fast!!!!

I kinda thought it was just me, but I was feeling like I couldn't buy ANYTHING I wanted because when I went to place an order last night, everything was out of stock! So, maybe it is a little worse than usual, cause I've never felt that way before.

I'm used to having one or two things I want out of stock when I go to make an order. Not everything but one thing. It's just weird lately.

Oh yea, there's always one or two things I can't order right away because they're out of stock. But like tonight, when I was placing my order, there were 5 lingerie items on my WL out of stock! These aren't older items either, they were just added 2 weeks ago. Also, quite a few of the rabbit vibes I've been wanting to try are out.

I wonder if it's a tactical decision. If you perceive it as being a scarce commodity, you're more likely to want to buy it the minute it's available.

I actually noticed this. I put up alerts for a handful of items for the first time EVER. I bought something that came back in stock and it's already out of stock again!

I just finished cleaning out my "Out of Stock" wishlist, deleting (discontinued stuff and items I just don't want that much anymore, moving things that are back in stock to their proper wishlist) and it's still at 79 items. (Down from 120, at least!)

I've noticed that to but,because I haven't been on the site long (just participating the least then a week) I thought that was normal.

OMG I KNOW!! I have had about 6 items out of my 10 or so, that have been out of stock foreverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr r.

The shock therapy has been out of stock for centuries now, it took about two or three weeks for the Cake Hand buffer set to come back in stock, *sigh*.

Now I am waiting (patiently-or trying anyhow) for all these items to come in I just hope that they come back in while the sales are still good! 1

I think this is why they should put a low stock warning on products. Just so we can order things before they disappear.

And when we send support tickets in they usually know when things will be back in. Why not give an estimated restock time? Would cut down on support tickets, too.

Great idea!! That would really help streamline the site.

Most of the things on my wishlist are books, and they seem to spend most of their time out of stock. One thing I was looking at came back in stock and then ran out again before I was home from work to check my alerts and order it =(. Perhaps there is simply a problem with EF not ordering quite enough of its more popular items?

The estimated restock time would make me the happiest shopper in the world; I wish I knew who to email to suggest it!

Yeah, and it would be nice to have a discontinued warning before something completely sells out. >_<
