    i was thinking I could use some conditional logic to make sure the the quantity selected ends with a 0, but there is no suitable condition type to alert the user that the quantity must be a multiple of 10.

    I think you will achieve this by using another widget called Form Calculation, this will help you to take and evaluate the quantity entered in the Inventory Widget, this way you will now if it ends in 0 or not. 

    Here are the steps, first add the widget to your form: 

    In the widget add this formula:

    You will also need to add a text field where you will display the message if the quantity entered is not correct:  

    Now if the number entered in the widget is not multiple of 10 the result of the calculation will be a decimal value, here you can set up a condition to show the alert message if this is the case, here is a screenshot of the condition that I have added to my form: 

    On this guide you will also find more details about conditions: Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic

    Here is the result: 

    You may also set the calculation as hidden so it does not show in the form: 

    Here is the link to my form where you can test how it works: https://www.jotformpro.com/form/62874917597981 

    Please do note that this has been applied only to the first widget in your form, but the steps for the other widgets are the same.

    However, if you have any question do not hesitate to let us know, we will be glad to assist you.
