    Unfortunately no, it is not possible to limit stock quantities with our Paypal integration.

    You will have to use Paypal's shopping cart generator to avail the 'limited stock' feature. However, there is no way to properly integrate a custom Paypal shopping cart with JotForm.

    Just to add my two cents worth, a ticket requesting that some sort of inventory tracking feature be added to our payment fields (whether PayPal integrated or otherwise) but we are in no position to give a timeframe as to if or when such functionality will become a reality.

    The thread to which the ticket has been attached can be viewed here.

    I would like to echo this as a request. Even if you just had it so you could specify the number of times anyone can purchase a particular product would be helpful. That way if you only had 500 seats available you would not over sell them. I think an important part of this would be to make it work with special pricing fields and subproducts so that if you chose a product and it had special quantity/pricing that when they chose to buy 10 seats it would mark them off. Even if there was some way to intergrate this into the conditions or something it would work. if product x = 10 then subtract 10 from product stock or something?

    Guys, you need to have inventory control feature in Paypal integration when you define the product.

    It is absolutely necessary.
