    I do not see how to limit inventory on my products. The help forum indicates you can limit quantity. I do not see that option.

    Unfortunately it is not possible to maintain inventory in payment tool of form.

    You may like to take advantage of our "Gift Registry" & "Quantity Gift Registry" widgets and see if that fits into your requirement. This widget will allow you to list the products with available inventory. Once a user selects a product and submit form, the available quantity will reduce accordingly. 

    You can then calculate the amount and pass it to your payment tool to process payment. You may like to take a look at the following guide which should help you:   https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field

    Hope this helps.

    Do try it out and get back to us if you have any questions.

    Hello JotformForum,
    This is WAY TOO complicated! In PayPal, I can easily set a limit on a
    product and it informs me when "X" amount are remaining.
    I believe in the old version in the product wizard you were able to set the
    inventory.
    I strongly request this simple option be developed. It seems that it could
    be a simple option in the product field. You can limit coupon codes used.
    It makes sense that you could do the same with products.
    Thank you,
