Understanding the PrestaShop Mail Alerts Module

by Curt Donohue on January 15, 2011

Taking the time to set up your mail alerts module in the back office helps you to keep in touch with customers and on top of your retail products.

For your customers

This module can give your customers the option to be contacted via email when out of stock product becomes available and gives them a link directly back to the product that they are interested in, great for stores with products that are in high demand.  In addition this module checks and accepts only valid email addresses and gives you the opportunity to get more products in front of your customers and get them sold.  In this video, we will teach you how to set it up in the back office and show you how it works for your clients.

For your business

You can also set up mail alerts to notify you when a new order is made.  This is a great option to set up for smaller stores or stores that may just be starting out.  If you don’t want to take the time to have to constantly watch for new orders and haven’t hired someone to do it for you, then this is a good option to choose.  There is also an option that allows you to be notified before you are out of stock.  This option is great if you have products that take time to ship over to you and helps you to make sure that you are never out of stock.  Set up email alerts to send notifications to just yourself or send notification alerts to as many email addresses as you need to.

This module is not working in v1.4.6

(email php sending function works fine, but order alerts with this module don’t)
