Shopping cart question using paypal

Hi,

I am trying to start a website using paypals shopping cart function.
If i have 10 items and they sell out, how do I make it so the item is
then listed as sold out. The next person would not be able to come
along and add it to their shopping cart.

thanks

Hi Joy,

If you're using PayPal's free shopping cart, then you'll have to have
a programmer integrate PayPal's IPN with your web server's product
catalog or shopping cart so that it knows that the product is no
longer available. PayPal's shopping cart does not have that capability
on its own.

If you don't have any shopping cart software, and would like an
ASP.NET shopping cart, let me know. There is a new PayPal sdk that
includes an PayPal-enabled ASP.NET eCommerce Shopping Cart. You can
find it at http://www.persistent.com/paypal/aspdotnet or
http://www.paypal.com/aspdotnet

I am designing a PayPal shopping cart/store for a client and have placed several of PayPal's shopping cart forms on the page to correspond with different products. Each form has a unique name though each of the form's elements have to use PayPal's required naming conventions to pass the data to their server. Many of the forms have hard-coded data in them and these have not caused me any problems. The problems I am having are with 3 forms...

I'd like to use someone else's software, rather than write my own shopping cart code. The shopping...

I am at a total loss as to how to accomplish a feature in a shopping cart. (I am using PHP5 and MySQL) Basically, when someone adds an item to their cart, it should alter the inventory to reflect it. That part i have fine, but the problem is, that should a person decide not to complete their purchase, the level should go back up. So the decrease in available stock should go down only temporarily, until checkout. The actual transaction...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
