    Hi Jotformexpert,

    Thank you for contacting SUpport.

    Unfortunately, the feature to limit the products in the purchase order field is not available. You may consider using the inventory widget which has that capability, however, the price calculation to be done manually using a form calculation widget and the passed to the Purchase order field. Please refer to the guide below that can help you with setting up an order form with limited stocks.

    You can hire a developer on the Freelancing site like Upwork, etc.

    You can also tell us your requirements and if you have any questions/concerns, please feel free to contact us here. We will be happy to help you.

    Payment fields are developed by Jotform, so I'm afraid that will not be possible to have an external developer to modify our element. 

    I have opened a feature request for this feature now, although we cannot provide an ETA, we will keep you updated via this ticket. 

    Also, an alternative is to use the form source code and indeed hire a developer to work on the inventory system on your payment field, note that this will only work on your embedded form using the source code only, this does not mean the developer will push the updates to our native payment field source code. The source code of the form is downloaded as HTML, so the developer you hire is free to develop this tool using HTML and evaluate the programming languages he considers convenient on this.

    We implemented stock management feature. With this feature, you can enable stock control not only for your basic products (having no option) but also for products having options like Color, Size, etc. easily. Here is our detailed help guide to get more information.

    Please let us know if you face any problems or have improvement suggestions.

    Best regards.
