What is a Price Drop Alert?

Before we dive deep into set up, we need to understand what exactly is price drop alert. In simple terms, a price drop alert means, alerting the user whenever the price of their chosen product falls below the current price. So what does it mean? Let’s see the below example for more clarity.

The customer is viewing a pair of shoes whose current price is $100. However, the customer wants to buy at a lower price. He sets an alert for a 10% drop. When the price drops by 10%, he will get an alert that the price has dropped. This is what a price drop alert is.
