Know to what products customers subscribe not to waste money

Magento inventory management functionality allows customers to subscribe to stock and price alerts for products. It also sends Magento back in stock notifications to customers, which is nice. However, there’s no way for admin to see to which products customers subscribe. So it is difficult for you to make informed decisions about stock renewals and price updates. This leads to money wasted on unwanted products and unnecessary price modifications. With this Magento stock alert module you will know exactly for which products stock or price need to be updated.

Refill the products, which customers want to buy

With the module you will see to which magento out-of-stock products customers subscribed. This way you will load your stock with the products which you can sell right away.

Return your investment faster

By keeping in stock the products which customers want to buy, you will sell products a lot quicker and save on inventory.

Optimize prices

It is very difficult to set the ‘right’ prices for products – your business needs to be both profitable and competitive. Getting out-of-stock and price alerts, you can increase prices for popular products and decrease the ones which customers would like to buy, but don’t due to high price. Very often even minor price changes will help you to get more revenue.

Build long-term relationships with your customers

new!Interact with guest customers

By default only registered clients can receive out of stock or back in stock notification or other alerts. Nowadays many customers prefer not to sign up, however this should not stop your interaction with such people. The module enables guest customers to subscribe to stock and price alerts and get notified about back in stock products, which will considerably increase the base of potential product buyers.

Make customers more loyal

With timely price changes and stock renewals you will demonstrate to your customers that you respect their opinion and they will return to your store more often. Everybody wins in such situation – customers get the desired products and you get more orders.

Improve customer satisfaction

The faster customers get the desired products – the more satisfied they are. With the module you will quickly see which out-of-stock products they are waiting for.

Get accurate subscription data to make right inventory decisions.

Let customers subscribe to Magento out of stock options of configurable products

By default Magento does not allow to subscribe to out of stock options of configurable products. So if large size of red shirt is not available and a customer wants to buy it, you will never know this. This is a major flaw if you sell configurable products, as you may lose a lot of sales just because you don’t know which products customers would like but can't get at your store.

Let customers manage their product subscriptions

Customers can see to what products they are subscribed to and change their subscriptions. So the subscription data you see in admin panel will be actual and you will update the right products.

new!Customers can subscibe to the grouped products

With this functionality you can see the subscriptions to the grouped products, too.

Hide the ‘subscribe to’ functionality from certain product pages

If you want to restrict customers from subscribing to certain products in your store, you can easily turn off the subscription window for specific products in your catalog.

Other solution to make your store even more user-friendly

Custom Stock Status extension is great addition to Out of Stock Notification. Create unlimited number of product stock statuses and assign stock statuses to products automatically or manually.

This controller sends emails without cron.

If you haven’t received the email, please submit a support ticket at: http://amasty.com/contacts/

 

If you have received the email notification, the issue is related to Magento settings or the cron configuration.

1. Open database and find table "cron_shedule"

If it is empty, the cron haven’t been configured.

               </run>

and insert the code below before <run>...</run>

<schedule><cron_expr>*/5 * * * *</cron_expr></schedule>
