Upload Acx Stock-notification
Using your favorite FTP client, upload all files and folders to the root folder of your Magento installation
In 'General Settings’ Admin can define the notification method as Automatic or Manual. In Automatic option, the notification emails will be sent automatically to the user when the product gets back in stock. In Manual, the admin has to manually notify the users. In Admin Email id field, the Admin has to set an email id from which all the notification emails will be sent to the users. In Admin Name, the admin has to enter his name.
If a guest user wants to get notify about a product getting back in stock, then he/she can simply enter their email id and click on ‘Notify Me‘ and then whenever that product gets back in stock and available for purchasing, the guest user will receive a mail on the mail id that he/she has provided for receiving notification.
Whenever registered users visit an out of stock product page, they will see that their email id is already been filled in the email id field, they can also change the email id if they want and after that, they can click on ‘Notify Me’ to receive notification when the product gets back in stock.
Admin has to go to Out of Stock Notification –> See All Requests to view all the notification requests made on the web store.
