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
