Out Of Stock Actions - Sign Up For Notification Rate Topic   - - - - -

 

Posted 10 October 2015 - 03:11 PM #1

Hello,

 

I have been setting up the Out of Stock actions for various produts (without options) in my admin - I can see that if a customer checks the "send me an email when back in stock" option, their email is stored in the Subscribers tab of that product.

 

My question - once I change the stock level from ZERO to a positive value, does an automated email go out or should I be manually emailing that customer?

 

If it is automated, then those emails are not working - where should I go to fix the problem?

 

Kind regards

 

Phil Holding

I have tested this option and it works automatically. Check your email settings in the admin panel or check junk folder.

If you do not change the amount in stock directly in the database, the system will send notifications automatically. If it does not work. please contact CS-Cart support team

If you are changing the amount with a third party script or have products with variants and want to use the back in stock notifications this back in stock add-on will be useful.

I am afraid, this is not possible on the clean CS-Cart installation. Additional code modifications are required

Is not supported in cs-cart, a possible solution in post #4.

After re-stocking and notification email is sent, does CS Cart clear-out the subscriber emails for this product from database?

yes, subscribers are deleted from the database

Thank you @eComLabs. You're an asset to this community.

 

Is there a way to find these email addresses, after they're deleted? Are they recorded anywhere?

 

I will suggest to CS-Cart to update this Subscriber feature by adding option to archive our non-registered and registered customer email addresses, instead of deleting them.

 

There will be instances where they miss "in-stock" email notification and have to be reminded again.

No, you cannot find email addresses after they are deleted. In order to disable deletion you can open the app/functions/fn.common.php, find the fn_send_product_notifications function and delete the following line of code

db_query("DELETE FROM ?:product_subscriptions WHERE product_id = ?i", $product_id);
