    Buongiorno, e complimenti per il servizio che offrite. Io stò creando un sito di vendita di coupon ( simile a groupon ) per la mia provincia. Ho già usato dei vostri moduli, ma mi manca un modulo che mi permetta di contare le offerte a numero chiuso. Mi spiego meglio: se un cliente mi incarica di vendergli un solo prodotto io devo inserire sul sito un conattore che nel momento che un utente acquista il prodotto venga segnalato sull'offerta che il prodotto non è più disponibile. Riamango a vostra disposizione per ulteriori chiarimenti in merito. Grazie e buon lavoro.



    Hello, and congratulations for the service you offer. I am creating a site selling coupon (like Groupon) for my province. I've used your modules, but I'm missing a module that allows me to have a limited number of bids. Let me explain: if a customer asked me to sell one product I have to put on the site a conattore that when a user buys the product is reported on the offer that the product is no longer available. Riamango at your disposal for further clarification. Thank you and good job.

    Hello Massimo,

    Thank you for your kind remarks and for posting your inquiry.

    Unfortunately, there is no feature yet for this type of process in purchasing product items via JotForm.  But I do believe this is a good feature so I am going to forward this to our development team and have them consider this to be developed and implemented.  I only cannot provide an exact timeframe to when this feature will be added.

    Thank you for supporting Jotform.

    Warm regards,

    I have a follow up questions:

    Is there not a way to limit the amount of available products via PayPal?

    Hello Sanna.. It would be best that you contact Paypal's support to get your answer for your question.

    Hi liyarn,

    I just spoke to PayPal and there is no way they can mess with Jotform's code, which it is all about. I could create a PP button for the one item that has a limited supply, but then the whole beauty of form flling on line is lost.

    That you can't offer an otion of a limited inventory is so sad - I love Jotform, but this was really a miss that I haven't understood would be a problem until now.

    I am hoping that you have success in bringing this issue to your development team (as you said in your answer to Massimo above).

    Keeping my fingers crossed! Thanks.

    Thank you for sharing that information with us.

    As far as I can see, the feature request ticket is already escalated to our Development Team and marked as Nice To Do.

    We will update this thread once we get any updates.
