CobbleWeb has used product alerts to solve supply constraints for event tickets and car parks and to encourage product exploration in an art marketplace. Some of the alert mechanisms that we implemented:
When buyers purchase an artwork on Affordable Art Fair we notify them if similar art by the same artist becomes available. The same process is followed if buyers favourite an artwork without making a purchase.
Drivers that save a search query (e.g. parking in Amsterdam on Thursdays at under €10 per day) on MobyPark are alerted whenever parking that matches their criteria becomes available.
Product alerts can also be used to advise buyers of product changes. For example, if buyers follow a particular seller, they can be advised of price increases or decreases or when the product is available in different colours or sizes.
