Do note that Product is the custom post type used by WooCommerce for its product listing.

Scroll down to the “Recipient” section to define who receives the newsletter. Your WordPress users could be further filtered or restricted to specific roles such as Author, Contributor, Subscriber, Editor, or a combination of roles depending on who you’re trying to reach.

Say you want the recipient of the automated email to be all WooCommerce customers, select “Registered Users” as the connection and “Customer” as the user role.

To send the email notification to your list subscribers, select your email marketing service such as MailChimp, AWeber, and Campaign Monitor as the connection and then your email list. For MailChimp, you have the option to send to a saved segment.

Please note that you need to have MailOptin connected to your email service provider before it can show up in the “Connection” select dropdown.
