Unfortunately the Yola Online Paypal widget doesn't yet offer the feature to stop your button if your product has sold out. However, you can add it to your site by follow these easy steps...

1) Sign into your Pay-pal 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 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.

Happy site building

I'm looking for a way to do this with HTML code. Tell PayPal to not ever sell more than one . The button creator doesn't give these options within code.
