    Is there a method to limit the number of times something can be purchased

    Asked by daveosch on January 28, 2014 at 11:41 PM

    Looking for a countdown feature - I have 8 tickets to sell and do not want to sell 9 - having the ability to countdown in a purchase order would be a good feature.

    Yes, we have such feature under Form Limits where you can limit number of submission/entries you received.

    Here's how:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab

    2.  Click the Preferences button

    3.  In the Preferences window, click the Form Limits tab

    You might wondering what is Unique submission, Submission Limits, Expiration Date:

    Unique Submissions: Allows a user only one submission on the form, this is either limited the browser's cookies or more strick by not allowing to submit the form from that same IP address.

    Submission Limit: you can limit the total amount of submissions made to a form. You can only limit the overall amount of submissions.

    Expiration Date: You can limit the access to the frm by date. Once that date is met (based on the time zone you've configured in to your account) the form will no longer be available.

    If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact us again at anytime.
