How to Get IKEA Back-in-Stock Alerts

Shopping for IKEA products online can be a hassle. They only restock larger items once a week, leaving you out of luck if you can’t find what you’re looking for before then. If you’re trying to find the perfect IKEA product but find yourself getting frustrated with out-of-stock items with no restocks in sight, restock alerts might be your best bet.

Visualping makes it easy to set up IKEA stock alerts, giving you a trusted method for making sure you’re notified when a product is restocked without ever having to check the page yourself.

Visualping is a simple, but powerful, tool that lets you monitor any web page – or section of a page – for any new changes. That makes it a great option for finding out when an out of stock product on any site is available for purchase again.

How to Get Notified When IKEA Restocks: 3 Methods You Can Use

An IKEA stock alert is a convenient way to stay on top of important product changes. Sometimes, getting an IKEA alert when in-stock items do, in fact, return is the only way to get the products you want. However, not all restock notifications are the same.

There are a few different ways for you to get notified when an IKEA product restocks. You can bookmark the listings and manually check each one yourself every now and then, get an IKEA inventory alert using their own internal service, or receive fast, reliable IKEA restock notifications from Visualping.

Method 1: The Manual Approach

For many users, the manual approach is an easy and effective way to make sure they can get the products they have their eyes on as soon as restocks occur. Simply bookmarking the page and checking back every so often can, eventually, net you the item you’ve been looking for.

However, for items that sell out fast and do so often, it’s less likely that you’ll be able to check in during that short window of time before they go out of stock once more. Since there are a variety of automated services that will do this for you, there’s really no reason to do this yourself.

Method 2:’s Product Stock Availability Notifications

Most major online retailers provide users with notification options for tracking item statuses, such as restocks, so another option is to get notifications regarding stock availability directly from IKEA itself.

IKEA In-Stock Notifications for Online Purchases

IKEA provides in-stock notifications for online purchases on its website. Simply enter your zip code and select the product you want to add to your bag. When you’re done shopping, select “Checkout,” and it will show you the amount of the item that is in stock alongside its delivery and pick-up options.

If the item is sold out, and you want to be notified when the item is restocked, go to the product page and sign up to have IKEA notify you when in-stock items are ready through a message via email or SMS.

In-Stock Notifications for Local In-Store Availability

In-stock notifications aren’t limited to online purchases. IKEA’s physical retail stores can be selected while shopping online to receive in-stock notifications for local products in your area, which is a convenient way to find the items you want without having to deal with other customers in a physical store.

Potential Downsides

While IKEA’s in-stock notification system can be handy, it’s important to note that some customers have recently reported that IKEA’s email and SMS notification service is fairly unreliable.

Although some customers feel that IKEA stock alerts are adequate, many users have stated that they don’t receive the proper notification when restocks occur. There’s also a problem with false positives, as users receive an email or SMS notification telling them their item is in stock, only to check the site and find that it still isn’t available.

Due to ongoing issues such as these, those who want to make sure they get the correct notifications on time may want to make use of a third-party service like Visualping instead.

Once this is done, you’ll be able to fine-tune your selection.

Step 3: Select How Often You Want Visualping to Check the Page for Changes

One of the coolest features of Visualping is that it allows you to select how often you want it to scan a page for changes. These intervals can range from every five minutes, if you so choose, to longer spans, such as every hour or once a day. Keep in mind that shorter intervals may be necessary to get a notification before an item is sold out again.

Step 4: Type in the Email Address Where You Want to Receive the Restock Notifications

To have notifications sent directly to your inbox whenever changes occur, type your email address into the box and click on “Start Monitoring.” Make sure you use an active email that is kept private from other users.
