Stock Notification – Overview

Each notification can be managed from within the admin panel. We display open notifications in the standard wordpress way. You will find basic functionality like bulk deletion, and an overview of all currently active notifications. Its also possible to create new notifications and assign them to customers or visitors. This is great if customers ask you about the availability of a certain product. Just add them to the waiting list, no further actions from the customer is required.
