Coronavirus Trackers Update – Please Read

Friday, March 27th, 2020

We recently began receiving several emails daily questioning how things work, or for that matter, how things don’t seem to work. We also are seeing many new visitors to our website. As a result, I will provide a brief update. I will try to keep this as quick and as simple as possible.

Understand, if you receive an alert, it is because we saw stock was available for purchase regardless of the sources we use to determine that availability. So in simple terms, we saw stock was available and alerted you. Whether you were able to purchase that item or not is dependent on a few factors:

Fido.ca SMS Alerting Turned OFF

Thursday, February 9th, 2017

UPDATE 2017-02-13: Fido.ca texting turned back ON. Please visit this page to ensure you have set up your Fido service. Send a text to 3436 with “Allow nowinstock.net” to ensure our messages are not blocked.

2017-02-09: Wireless carrier Fido.ca SMS alerting has been turned off. They are blocking our text alerts from going through. If you want Fido turned back on, you subscribers need to talk with Fido. The same thing happened with T-mobile and users spoke up. T-Mobile contacted us to resolve the issue. It works, you just need to let them know how you feel… https://twitter.com/Fidomobile

AOL.com Email Delivery Issues

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

To our users who use AOL for their email: Email alerts destined for aol.com, prior to 11:00 AM today, have been TURNED OFF as AOL continually delays our emails.

Option 1

We suggest you log in and change your email to another provider. Then turn on email alerting for your items in order to continue receiving our alerts in a timely manner. Gmail remains the most trust worthy provider.

Option 2

If you would like to ignore our above advice and try to continue receiving email from us to your aol.com email address, you will need to log in to your account and turn email alerting back on for each of your items. If you proceed with this method, there is clearly no guarantee on the delivery times.

Sorry for this inconvenience, however, once we reach a certain threshold with AOL, deliveries of emails tanks. Smaller queues to AOL seem to pass, but as they grow into the thousands issues arise.
