I have a requirements to notify the admin through email when a product quantity goes below 5 in Magento 2.0.7.

I have found that there is option on the admin:

System > Configuration > Catalog > Inventory > Product Stock Options section

But setting the Notify for Quantity Below to 5 is not sending any emails to admin when an order is placed.

Please let me know what I am missing here.

There is no low-stock notification by email in Magento 2. You can be notified by RSS or by accessing Reports -> Products -> Low Stock in admin menu.



Download below extension from github and install in you website. It's working fine.
