When creating a store, can you specify how many of the product is available? Without this option, it is very possible for two people to make a purchase when only one is available.

Hi Donald
Unfortunately the Yola Online Store widgets don't yet offer this feature. However, you can add to your site by visiting PayPal 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.
