Setting up email notifications

WooCommerce Batch Numbers provides a set of email notifications that are helpful to manage batches stocks and expiration dates. Let’s see how it works.

Expiration offset notification #

The offset is a number of days given to a batch or sets of batches, that is attached before the expiration date. When the expiration enters the offset range, the store administrator could receive a notification informing that some batch will expire soon.

Example: we have a batch expiring on 2030-12-31 and we set the offset to 30 days, this means that when the current date is 2030-12-01 an email notification is triggered.

The offset can be defined globally:

Or at a product level:

You could also opt to receive the same notification every day until the batch expires:

Sold out notification #

If you want to be notified every time a batch gets sold out (runs out of stock), you just need to enable this option in the plugin settings:

Expired notification #

If you want to be notified every time a batch gets expired, you just need to enable this option in the plugin settings:

Email address to receive notifications #

Now you could choose in which email address you should receive the notifications. You can choose from 3 options:

  • Admin email
  • WooCommerce email
  • Custom email
