This demand generation Tactic alerts your customers that some of the products they put on their wishlist are back in stock.
The Product Catalog Updates notifies the customer when their desired items' are back in stock. You can fine-tune the targeting by setting the relevancy (the item was added to the wishlist in the last X days) and exclude those who already purchased it. Emarsys automatically excludes items that are not available anymore.

The technical solution to onboard wishlist data
There is a dedicated API endpoint for wishlist events. This solution has numerous benefits:
- Marketers cannot delete wishlist-related events accidentally.
- Wishlist is a highlighted resource across the platform, and it would not be lost among the other external events.
- The event has a standardized structure with proper validation.
