    Can you set inventory from the jotform end when creating new products? I found this option only available when setting up a product in stripe, but then that product didn't talk to jotform. I'm guessing the two fields in the separate programs don't link? So if the place I am meant to create products is within jotform, how do i set an inventory or max amount to sell? thank you

    I'm afraid you cannot set the inventory of items in Stripe from within JotForm. If you want to limit the amount of items you are offering for sale through the JotForm forms, you should instead use our Inventory widgets within JotForm:

    If you opt for this route, you will need to calculate the price to charge your users by performing calculations based on their selections on the Inventory widgets:

    Then, you can simply pass the calculated amount to the Stripe payment field for users to make their payment:

    Please let us know if you need further clarifications or assistance with setting it up, and we'll be happy to help.
