Shopping cart question using paypal

P: n/a
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
