Why Product Alerts for WooCommerce?
Customers sign up for the option that suits them best, with three types of user requested alerts. Marking products as a “Favorite” allows them to receive notifications when that item goes on sale or stock is almost exhausted.

Settings: Customize the look of available forms with Custom CSS
Favorites: One click allows Admin to disable Alerts individually on each product page. You can also set a large range of Button Options including listing locations, appearance on Shop Pages and Styling of Buttons.
Restocking Alerts: Control Email Subject, Headings, Type and Notification text. Simple options to update Button Text, Successful Registration or Duplication Notices as well as the option to enable Captcha and control where the product alert location.
Registered Emails: Straight forward management of subscribers with a colour coded notification legend.
On Sale Alerts: Admin can enable or disable this alert for individual products, as well as set the Email Subject, Heading and Email type (HTML, Plain Text or Multipart)
Low Stock Alerts: Admin can enable or disable this alert for individual products, as well as set the Email Subject, Heading and Email type (HTML, Plain Text or Multipart) and the Low Stock Quantity
Statistics: Each email includes a unique session key, so that email clicks are tracked. This data powers a clever dashboard for each kind of Alert available: Restocking, Favorite Products, Sale Alerts and Low Stock Alerts.

Special Note to Potential Users
This plugin is designed to work with the WooCommerce core plugin. If you are using a third-party plugin to manage your stock, the restocking alerts will NOT be sent. This would require a customized solution that triggers the email based on the functionality of that particular plugin. At this time, this plugin does not have any affiliations with any third-party stock management systems.
Please also ensure that your theme has the following hooks and filters included in its template files. These hooks are used to display content in your shop, but some themes have removed them in favor of their own solution. These hooks are required for this plugin to work: http://www.bolderelements.net/support/knowledgebase/bepa-required-action-hooks-filters/
