Support » Plugin: Back In Stock Notifier for WooCommerce | WooCommerce Waitlist Pro » Sending Emails for Deleted Variations

  • Hello,

    Why is the plugin sending out back-in-stock email notifications when I delete a variation?

    I have had this happen multiple times. A product will be out of stock for a long time. Accrue a large amount of subscribers. We are informed by the manufacturer that the product is no longer available. I delete the variation and it sends out a back-in-stock email notification to all the subscribers. It is not back in stock. I did not put it back in stock before deleting the variation. THE PRODUCT DOES NOT EXIST ANYMORE. It should not be sending out emails with a link to nothing.

    This causes all those subscribers to call us or email us asking why they have a back-in-stock email with a broken link. This is a huge time suck.

    It does not make sense that I have to manually purge the subscribers before deleting the product/variation and it is also a waste of time.

    1) Yes, but this has happened will several past version as well.
    2) All up to date. WooCommerce: 5.3.0, WordPress: 5.7.2, Back In Stock Notifier: 2.1, but again this has happened with previous versions of all.
    3) We do not use a cache plugin. It is done through WP Engine.
