Product Quantity Thresholds

Quantity thresholds on products allow you to disable products when they hit a certain quantity.

Setting a quantity threshold can help alleviate issues with overselling.

To use a quantity threshold on a product go to Menu > Products and click on a particular product.

Click on the Pricing tab and enter a number into the Quantity Threshold field:
