Guide for Out of Stock Notification

With the Out of Stock extension, you can have more precise information on what your customers' demands are. Analyze your inventory and let your customers subscribe for out-of-stock options of configurable products.

General Settings

To configure general settings, go to System → Configuration → Out of Stock Notifications.

To use configurable product image for simple product subscriptions on account page, enable the Use Configurable Image feature.

Greeting Text for Email - Specify the greeting text intro for out-of-stock notification emails for unregistered users.

Minimum Stock Quantity - Choose minimum stock quantity, when the out-of-stock email should be triggered.

Send Email To Admin - Receive daily emails with a list of product alerts to which customers have subscribed.

Limit Emails by Product Qty - Limit number of e-mails sent based on the quantity of products back in stock. For example, if there are 100 customers subscribed to one product, and there are 5 items in stock – the module will send out only 5 notifications.
