Hello, y'all! 

I would like to know if there's a way to trigger an email or alert whenever we have a product going out of stock so the purchasing team can act on it. Let's suppose, send an email when a product has only 1 or 2 left. 

Swept the platform but couldn't find it

Thanks in advance 😃

This is an accepted solution.

We have an automation template that will allow you to do exactly this:

It works by triggering every time inventory is adjusted and then kicking off a workflow. In this particular case it's sending a slack message but we coudl set that up to send an email or sms or other types of alerts.

 

Would be happy to help you get that set up and you can also do it yourself by following that link.

Hello @rapasvi94

 

In this case, you can implement inventory management software that will automate the process of checking and reordering stock when the levels are low.

 

You can consider these apps:

  • Stock Sync

This is one of the most popular and recommended Shopify inventory management apps in the Shopify App Store.
Its key features:

  • supports feed formats such as CSV, Rest API, SOAP, HTML, JSON
  • comprehensive inventory feed management
  • scheduled inventory updates
  • works with empty stores that are preparing to add SKU’s
  • sync to multiple vendor’s websites
  • manipulate product pricing

This app will be a great fit for small and medium businesses since it covers all of the basics of inventory management on Shopify.

 

  • Realtime Stock Sync & Bundling by Trunk

This is a more simplistic app for Shopify inventory management. Its strongest features are bundling and kitting management and real-time inventory syncing.
Its key features:

  • real-time stock level syncing
  • low stock alerts
  • bundling and kitting
  • multi-channel inventory management
  • duplicate SKU syncing

This app would fit a smaller multi-channel seller that sells bundles and kits and needs to have a basic IMS for variable products.

 

  • Katana

This is a manufacturing ERP with a comprehensive IMS that was designed to fit businesses that produce their own products, instead of reselling items. Katana offers a live inventory management system that allows you to track and manage your raw materials, finished products, and more in real-time.

Its key features:

  • real-time tracking of all kinds of inventory
  • management of product variants and materials in one place
  • multi-channel inventory syncing
  • automated reorders to prevent stock-outs
  • monitoring inventory across multiple warehouses

It would best fit a business that manufactures their own products and requires a more in-depth IMS.

 

Please, let me know if you need any assistance.

I've tried a couple solutions for this and thought I'd mention an easy, free option. The Shopify Flow app from Shopify has a template for this that has worked well for my clients. This week, for example, we set up one of their templates (screenshot below) to notify the client whenever their inventory reached 5 units.

 

It was an easy setup (wizard approach) and the flow worked like a charm by sending them an email confirming that one of the products hit the threshold today.

Hey, you can check our app: Fabrikatör. 

 

You can both set an alert for yourself and with the Klaviyo integration, you can also inform your customers while getting backorders.
