Hi plumpedlipssmokeyeyes,

This can also be done via customizing your PayPal buttons, similar to the steps I provided in this thread.

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 Sitebuilder and drag an HTML Widget to where you need it.

  12. In the HTML Widget, paste the code and click on "Save".

  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.

If you wanted to implement this you would need to create your own PayPal buttons in PayPal incorporating the inventory tracking feature and then add it to your site using an HTML Widget.

I hope this information is helpful!

Kind Regards,
