    It is not possible to set the limit on the payment integration settings, but it is possible to count the number of selected items and show a message indicating when more than 3 have been selected, you could also hide the submit button so the user does not submit the form. 

    To achieve it you will need to first add the Form Calculation widget to your form: 

    Once added you will need to add the count() function and include the payment integration:
