[resolved] Stop multiple products from being purchased (4 posts)

    Hi There,

    I am looking for some help or information regarding the "I have limited stock" option for a site. We have enabled this option for multiple products as the site sells only 1 item of each kind but somehow multiple products are still being bought.

    It appears as though the plugin only checks to see if a product has been added to the cart at the product level so if 2 users visit the product at the same time you are able to purchase the product without doing any validation checks once the user gets to the checkout page. Is it possible to add in a second or third level check? (Once the user goes to the checkout page)

    In the shop settings page we have the "Keep stock in cart for" set to 1 hour but I believe the plugin needs to do more checks throughout the users experience.

    The site is running on the latest WP (3.7.1) with the latest WP e-Commerce (

    If anyone is able to help out or supply any suggestions it'll be very much appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Hi Edward,

    Thanks for your reply - after seeing the following thread: https://github.com/wp-e-commerce/WP-e-Commerce/issues/481

    I think I can come up with something in the meantime before the final version is released. Once I am happy with what I come up with I could paste it here / let you know & see what you think.

    Kind regards,
