    How about using these widgets to list your items?

    https://www.jotform.com/widgets/inventory

    You can set a limit on each item using those widgets.

    Please give it a try and let us know if that could work for your needs.

    Hi,

    You can actually add a conditional logic that will allow you to create an order limit.
    Just add calculation field and set the submit button to hide if the amount of order exceeded your preference.



    Condition,


    I hope that helps, please let me know should you need further assistance.
