Email Settings

Automatic Email Sending

This option lets you activate the automatic dispatching of the emails for those customers registered to a waiting list of your shop. When you change the availability of a product from Out of Stock to In Stock, an email will be automatically sent to all the registered users of the related waiting list, without the need to click on the “Send the email to the users” button that you can find in the product page of Woocommerce.Emails

If you want to notify only a certain number of users according to the units available after restocking the products, you must enable the option Send it only to some users, based on the stock value. In this way, if you restock the product with 5 items, only the first 5 users who added that product to the waiting list will receive the email notification.

 

And it will be received by your customers in the following way:

Keep the list after email

After contacting the customers subscribed to the waiting list about the product being back in stock, you can choose to enable keep the list after email.                   This option gives you the freedom to avoid deleting the “waiting lists” of your customers of a certain product, even after the sending of the “in stock” email.
