I would like to set up something where the visitor can get on a list and get alerted when ANY new product is added to the cart. Can your plugin do this? Thanks!

I’m afraid not yet. It has been requested several times so it will come in the future. If you are still looking in a month or so, do check back :)

Thanks for your speedy reply. I certainly will :)

Hi dear support, i want to translate in french this words :

- “Subscriptions” - “You are subscribed to the following email notifications:” - “I love” - “Below is a list of products that you have marked as favorites”

I search in ftp in this path : wp-content/plugins/woocommerce-bolder-product-alerts/languages and i try to modify without any success.

Thank you to help me dear support.

It’s up to you and what you are more comfortable with. Either way I can send you the language file, you just have to remember to compile it with a language file editor. Editing the .po file is not enough. It must be compiled into a .mo file. So you will need either a computer program to do this, or you will need the above suggested plugin. If it’s not something you’re familiar with, I recommend the plugin because it will help you translate, compile, and put the file on the right place (you can’t put it in this plugins languages folder because it would get overwritten every time you upgrade).

Thank you for answer, so the best way is to download it and delete the older plugin to install it ?

I hope that translate language files will be fine so.

I know how to edit .pot and compile it in .po and .mo any problem for it i just would like to hold my actually install and just you to send me file that i need to replace in ftp, that all :) But if you tell me that download again plugin will be works ?

In waiting for you

No no, you don’t need to delete this plugin. If you are familiar with managing po files then I will just send you an updated language file. It seems it did not make it to the last update. The problem is that I cannot send you files through CodeCanyon like this. If you would prefer, you can also send me an email here and I will respond with an attachment.

Is it possible to make the “notify me” when the product is back in stock part on the main shop catalogue page instead of clicking on the product then showing it there? and I want to hide the email box completely, I just need the button there so they can click on it.

Is there any css code or anything I can add to the functions.php to make this happen pleasse? This will solve most of my problems. Thanks.

I left you a more detailed message in your support ticket. Anything is possible really, it just might need some tinkering of files to make it happen.

Hello, After the product has been restocked, it doesn’t notify me on email? Do I have to do it manually?

It’s possible you have something conflicting, but it’s difficult to say. Please ensure that you have the latest version of WooCommerce as some recent changes have affected how it is processed. I would still recommend opening a support ticket for further debugging if it continues to be a problem.

It regards to the restocking alerts, yes, they are a one time thing as this time. It’s possible to modify the code otherwise, but it’s not recommended as there is currently no way to opt out of the notifications. In many countries that is required for any subscription form of email, and guests do not currently have a unique link to do so. It is on the roadmap for a future version to work out a system where guests can be able to do this, but it’s a wide scope project so it will take some time.

I am still facing a problem? Can you please help me out? It doesnt work the way how it should, I updated and did everything.

I’m happy to take a closer look, but it would be best to open a support ticket to continue. This way you can leave login credentials privately and share more information a little easier.


I’m seriously interested in buying your “product alert for Woo” but I have severals question before. If you ask “YES” to all … you will have a new client :)

As there no update in the log from October 21st 2016 …. ( opus sounds like your website logs are not uptodate, I saw on CC -> Last Update 8 August 17 )

Is it WP 4.9.4 compatible ? —>

Is it Woocomerce 3.3.1 compatible ? —>

Is it WPML compatible ? —>

Is it “custom product type” compatible ? —>

Can I use shortcodes in title fields for example (in case of is not WPML compatible) ? —>

Can I put a % value for low stock quantity ? —>

Can I use a shortcode to place the “favorite” or “keep me updated” button where I want ? (I hope) —>

Is it compatible with this plugin ? —>

Is it GDPR Compliant yet ? Dead line May 25 2018 !!! —>

Can I activate (“yes” status) the “Low inventory notifications on products I love” , “Sale notifications on products I love” and “restocking alerts” by default when customer hit the “favorite” button ? —>

TIA Keep the good work! Regards

Ok I’ll do in a while ;)

Done ;)

Thank you kindly. I will look it over today and respond when I have more information for you.

I wonder if your plugin can be used to alert ads on a WP website using the following WP Classify theme:
(This theme uses woocommerce, but I would like that Alerts apply on all ads, not only on WC products).
Is it possible with your plugin, please?

I’m afraid this plugin is written specifically for WooCommerce so it will only be able to recognize products made within that system and no other post types.

Hello, I would like to export the email addresses list so I can use in email marketing, will your plugin have the way to do it? Thank you!

I’m afraid it does not have a CSV export at this time, but if you are familiar with phpMyAdmin you can always retrieve them from the database and save as a CSV file from there.

Hi, I bought your Plugin a few hours ago.

when trying to make a simulation

  I am getting HTTP ERROR 500 when trying to write the stock to a product that was stock = 0 and the new stock value is not recorded.

  this product has email addresses to receive notification

  I use the WP Mail SMTP plugin to send emails

What can I do to avoid this error?

I am sorry to hear you have experienced an error with this. Often times these 500 errors are actually PHP errors, but your server handles them a little differently. If you would like to open a support ticket, I can try to help debug this further. The comments section here is very limited so a support ticket would be easier.

another situation is that when I try to send an email manually

goes to a screen with the message:

-—x ---

Good News!

You have been waiting patiently and now it is finally here…

-- x ----

and does not leave this screen and the stock notification is not sent

sorry to have opened another topic in the comments, was to have continued in the previous topic

I do not know how to return this message


ramalli Purchased

I’ve enabled site debugging

and helps one to understand what happens

I am returning the following message

Notice: Undefined offset: 11173 in /var/www/ on line 333

I think it would be best to login and see what is going on. I’ve never seen the email printed out like that. It should have just been sent without you seeing the content like that. The notice there is the lowest level message PHP returns so it’s not impacting any of this. I can check to see if it happens on my site as well but it’s not something I run into yet.

If you have not done so already, please open a support ticket so we can share information and files better.

Hi. Loving this plugin so far!

But I’ve been trying to test the “Favorites” feature along with the “On Sale” notifications, and it doesn’t seem to work for variable products. If I add a variable product to my favorites list, even if I then set every variable to “on sale”, no email is sent. Perhaps I’m missing how to make this part work? or maybe it only works with simple products?

Also, I was able to send a test email for the Restock notification, but the text in the email reads:

You have been waiting patiently and now it is finally here…

Not sure where the “…” is coming from (I haven’t edited your template file)

It’s possible if there is some encoding happening during that process. I tried to research it but found nothing specific with that plugin. If you are using the one by WPForms I can’t imagine that would have any issues. It’s very widely used.

I did find many posts about migrating databases and having that happen. Each time it was just about the encoding functions not properly encoding/decoding the special punctuation. You can always try overriding the template file and either rewrite the exclamation mark (in case it happened during uploading), or remove it. I probably should have asked before, but did you click the button to preview the template? This would at least tell you if it was converted during uploading of the plugin.

When I preview the template, this is what I see for that part of the email.

<p><strong><?php _e('Good News', 'be-product-alerts'); ?>!</strong></p> <p><?php _e( 'You have been waiting patiently and now it is finally here', 'be-product-alerts' ); ?>...</p>

I’m not very good with php, so not quite sure how I should edit it if I copy the template to my child theme.

That’s really unusual, I’m afraid I do not know. You can try disabling the SMTP plugin temporarily to see if your server’s mail system handles it any differently. The exclamation mark is not inside the translation function (this was a recent change so I wanted to be sure).

I am not sure what else would be altering it unless you have another plugin that manages email text before it is set out. The emails for this plugin go through the email class in WooCommerce, so the same output filters would apply.

I’m an antique dealer, everything I stock is unique, it will never be in stock again. I want to let people know when a new item is added to a category. – is that a feature?

I’m afraid not yet. It will be coming in the next update, but it is still in progress and not expected to be released for a few more weeks.

Just wondering how your getting on with the new update. Is it a bit behind schedule

Unfortunately yes. We had to switch gears to focus on GDPR compliance for this and another plugin. An update is going to be released soon to provide this feature and it may or may not have this new alert email. It was only about half way through development when it was paused so it will depend on time.

For the variable products, when customer click on the item link of the email, the product variations is not selected.

I’m afraid I cannot replicate this issue on my own server. Have you tried the link while temporarily using a different theme? It’s possible something in your theme is overriding this. Please ensure the URL is correct, it should have the variation within the URL like this:

If the URL is formatted correctly, then this plugin is working okay. Selecting the appropriate variations is then handled by WooCommerce and sometimes your theme if they have overwritten certain template files.

Is the plugin gdpr compliant?

Unfortunately not 100% but an update is coming soon.

Prepurchase questions: 1. Any chance to make this gdpr compatible. (add a tick somewhere and let the customer know why we are asking for email) 2. Combine with yith wishlist for ex: customers add a product to his wishlist and maybe the price of that product is going on sale—> he receive an email with stoc and price alert 3. What is the impact on server performance ?

I’m afraid I don’t have a solid eta right now. But the integration shouldn’t be too difficult in the future. The sale and low stock alerts already work this way, just with this plugin’s favorites. So it’s just about telling the plugin to look at other systems, too.

Hmm the thing is that i am using a theme that uses yith wishlist with counter. Can you help me integrate your wishlist with theme?

I’m afraid I don’t personally have the time to do so. It will be available in the future if you’d like to check back, or you can hire a developer to bridge the two, but I have not been taking customization projects lately due to necessary plugin updates in progress.
