  • Don’t lose sales on out of stock items
  • Cut on inventory management time
  • Get instant alerts on low stock


What happens when the item is out of stock? Naturally, you lose a couple orders before you catch up. But, more importantly, you lose credibility as a merchant. The customer goes elsewhere to find the item and, next time, he’ll skip your store altogether.

Low Stock Alert allows to avoid this situation by catching all items that dip below a certain stock level and putting them on a low stock list. Additionally, you have an option for a daily email notification about low stock items.


  • Up to 5 separate low stock lists

    Setup up to 5 (15 in PRO version) smart collections with its own number to act as a stock threshold. Items at this mark or below will be reported as low stock.

  • Low stock grid

    Check current low stock items via in-app grid

  • CSV export

    Download all low-stock items as a single CSV file

  • CSV import

    Upload edited CSV file back to the app. It will parse the file and update inventory automatically.

  • Email notification

    Set up a daily delivery of low stock item list to your email. Email body includes a max of 100 items, but there is an option for an attachment with full list CSV file.

  • PRO: Up to 15 low stock collections

    Differentiate low stock collections according to numerous business needs and track e.g. best selling, fast moving, slow coming, etc. items separately.

  • PRO: Instant Alerts

    Receive alerts immediately after a product reaches the specified low stock level. Determine conditions for the products to be reported and send alerts to required email boxes.

  • PRO: Advanced email scheduling

    Set up most suitable days for notification emails, including business days only or definite weekdays e.g. Mondays, Fridays, etc.

  • PRO: Advanced email addressing

    Specify one or several email destinations for each low stock collection individually.

Easy to install and use. Very helpful for keeping track of our large inventory. We utilize the daily email option, its very reliable and straight forward. We will definitely continue to use this app. .


Simple, straight forward app and it's free!


Great APP. Works like a charm. will definitely recommend to another store. Check us out. www.thehalloweenspot.com


Once you do a little setup like some of the reviews suggest this app is very useful. We love it!


It does what it promises and does it for free. What more could you ask?

This is an edit of my original review (no star change, but some updates). I didn't understand at first how the collections worked and I was thinking in terms of collections based on product types. That isn't really what we wanted though. So now as we get closer to launch, we created three collections and alerts: one for items where inventory has dropped to zero (SOLD OUT!), one for items where inventory is 1-5 ("critically low") and one for items where inventory is 6-10 ("watch list"). This is working pretty well for us. Many ways you can use this that I didn't think of.

Still, this fills a need for a feature that really should be built into Shopify. Crazy that it's an app at all, but this app fills the void just fine and the price is right!

One small enhancement that would be great: if the email included the name of the collection in the subject line, that would be slick


Just starting playing around with this, and will see how it works. hopeful it will serve our needs!


Great app! Simple, easy to set up and so useful, really helps saving time!
