"Notify me" email recipient
« on: October 27, 2020, 10:45:27 am »
Hello,
We are not receiving the emails sent from the "Notify Me" button placed instead of the "Add To Cart" button of some products.
Spam folder checked.
Any insight regarding the configuration of this feature will be much appreciated.
Thank you,

It does not send an email to admin/vendor. The email address of the shopper is addded to the "Users waiting to be notified when this product is back in stock" on the product status tab.

Thank you Jenkilhill, in that case, I need to find another way to work with this feauture. What I need instead of the "Add to cart" button is some kind of "Contact me" button for these specific products so we can get in touch directly with the buyer and manage the sale. For this products we have to catch the fish on demand, we don´t hold stock.
What do you recommend? Is there a way to trigger some kind of notification each time someone uses the "Notify me" button?

You could override this. Look at the code for ask a question and steal the call that sends an email to the admin.

Of course.

Virtuemart doesn't do this very well in terms of business.

That is why we have programmed a new view into the VirtueMart administration - Waitinglist and a new plugin - Notify into the Mailing Manager for Virtuemart application.

You get it
- Absolute control over all customer requests
- automatic system of custom email templates
- automatic emails to administrators
- automatic emails to customers after product storage

Applications including new plugins can be found here:
https://www.minijoomla.org/extensions/virtuemart-extensions/virtuemart-mailing-manager

We use it on all our created e-shops.
www.minijoomla.org  - new portal for Joomla!, Virtuemart and other extensions
XML Easy Feeder - feeds from products, orders and database table
Virtuemart Email Manager - customs email templates
