    I have inspected your form and I noticed that you have lot of widgets. However that are all loaded correctly on my end. 

    This issue is most likely related to API  keys that Inventory widget is using. I have reset your API limit. Are you still receiving same message?  

    API Keys are limited 1000 requests for free accounts. The limit is cleared per day (on midnight EST).

    Hope this will help. let us know if you need further assistance.

    Spoke too soon!

    Now that I've edited some of the inventory widgets I'm getting the same error again. Do I need to wait until midnight for this to reset?

    I checked your form and it is indeed causing a rather large amount of API calls for the widgets.  I reset the total and with one load of the form the total was back to 870+.  I will forward this to our developers to have a look.  We will let you know as soon as we have further information.
