How to limit product sales based on stock or expiration date-time?

Inventory control: limit sales based on quantity in stock

  1. While adding or editing the product, tick the Inventory Control checkbox;
  2. Click More Options (when adding a new product) or Next (when editing an existing product);
  3. When you reach the screen with the Limit product sales to field, enter the quantity you have in stock for the product there.
    • Our system will update that quantity when we process a completed sale for the product;
    • Once that quantity reaches 0, the purchase button for that product will be disabled;
    • If you are selling products using Variants along with Inventory Control, every possible combination of product options would have its own stock figure, which you would specify and update in the product's Variants configuration.
  4. Click Next until you can Submit the new settings;
  5. You can manually update the quantity any time (like when you restock the product) by going to Seller Admin > View/Edit/Delete Product.

If you are selling stored codes, Inventory Control will be enabled automatically, with the quantity in stock determined by the number of codes left in your list.

Limit sales based on an expiration date-time

  1. While adding or editing the product, tick the Inventory Control checkbox;
  2. Click More Options (when adding a new product) or Next (when editing an existing product);
  3. When you reach the screen with the Item Expiration field, enter the date and time when the purchase button for that product should become disabled;
  4. Click Next until you can Submit the new settings;
  5. You can manually change or remove the item's expiration date at any time (like when the product should become available again) by going to Seller Admin > View/Edit/Delete Product.

Tip:

You can enable both the inventory and date-time limit. This comes in handy if you are selling event tickets.
