WCMp Vendor Stock Alert Configuration (By the Administrator)

Setting up WCMp Vendor Stock Alert is a piece of cake. The admin can set alerts for all vendors as well as set vendor specific alerts or just activate the minimum settings and let the vendors set alerts according to their preferences.

To set the stock alert globally ( the trigger will work for all the vendors whenever the stock quantity reaches the threshold level as has been set ). For better understanding have a look at the screen capture below.

  1. Go to Capabilities Tab under WCMp Settings and scroll to the Inventory Section under the Product link and then check the box for “Enable low stock alert for Vendors” ( to shoot mail whenever stock reaches the minimum quantity ). This in turn will allow you set the threshold value for stock quantity. Enter the limit in “Low stock alert limit for Vendors”.
  2. To enable reminder mail to vendors for products that are out of stock check the box for “Enable out of stock alert for Vendors”. This in turn will allow you set the value that will determine the product’s “out-of-stock” status. Enter the limit in “Out of stock alert limit for Vendors”.
  3. “Save Changes” will update the stock alert global settings
