Hello Nina

The Online Store Widgets available on Yola don't yet have a feature where you can track inventory (stock). However, you can add PayPal buttons connected to your inventory by customizing your settings on PayPal. Here are the steps:

1. Sign into your PayPal account.
2. Click the "Merchant services" tab in the horizontal menu.
3. Click the "Buy Now Button" or the "Add to Cart Button".
4. Choose button type and enter name and payment details.
5. Click the "Track inventory" tab.
6. Check the "Track inventory" box.
7. Enter the "Item ID" and input your quantity and alert quantity.
8. When you are done editing click "Create Button".
9. In the next window and in the (Website) code box click the "Select Code".
10. Right click on the highlighted text and click "Copy".
11. Open your site editor and drag an HTML Widget where you need it.
12. In the HTML Widget paste the code.
13. Then Preview or Update your site or page.

This will ensure that your product is never oversold, as well as give you an email letting you know when your stock gets low.

I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please let me know.

so if I did this and another person tries to buy the item that has already been bought, the transaction wouldn't go through?

Hi there Nina,
Yes, they won't be able to purchase the item.
