If I have items to sell on my website and have the correct add to cart and view basket button, do I then have to manually remove the item from the page if there is only one or will it automatically show that it has been sold.
Hoping to get this all sorted by January 1st for the launch date of my website. Thnk you for your help

Hi Alan,

Unfortunately the Yola Online Store widgets don't yet offer this feature. However, you can add it to your site by visiting and following these 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 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 Update your site.

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

For detailed information on using PayPal, please view PayPal's Website Payments Standard Integration Guide PDF (5.8mb PDF).

I hope this helps. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
