    What would system with every new order from the buyer, she took off with the previous value of the residue, and each time showed updates for the residue product?

    I believe that the "remaining residue of the goods" refers to the remaining quantity of a certain product that is still available for sale. For example, there are 100 items of a certain product, and 8 of them get sold. you wish that your form automatically displays to the next person that there are only 92 items remaining.

    If this is correct, it can be set up that way, but this can't be done directly through our payment tools. You will instead have to create your products in separate form fields, and use either the Inventory widget or the Gift Registry widget to hold the total amount of available items for each product.

    I believe that this question is the same as your previous one from the following thread:

    Please refer to the answer provided in that thread, and let us know if you need any assistance in setting up your payment form that way.
