The purpose of this series of articles is to look at our Inventory Status Email Notifications.
Learn more about our different types of Notifications here...
Inventory Level Notifications are the emails sent out once your item or product availability reaches a certain level. There is no requirement to use such notifications, but some business owners like to receive a quick heads up once their items or products are sold out, or close to being sold out.
You may also wish to inform your customers that a tour has reached a certain booking level and is, therefore, going ahead as planned.
Sometimes, a tour company cancels an excursion if certain participation levels are not reached. These emails are a great way to inform those that have already booked of the tour's status. This notification type is called Inventory.
Configuring these email notifications is quick and easy. We even provide a variety of variables that enable you to automatically populate your emails with as much or as little information as you desire. This might include the customer name, details of the item(s) or product(s) they have booked, and a copy of the invoice.
