    Does anyone know what coding to use so that I can put a quantity amount on a product, and as one is sold, it reduces the number available? Ex. 10 products available, 1 sells, it then shows 9 available on the site. I assume this is something with the shopping cart?
    thanks for any help

    Your best bet is to use a third party software like optioncart

    I am going to assume you are asking me about Option Cart since you can read about how Mals's works on his pages. You can learn about the option cart addon software here. http://www.wsdh.net/index.html?category=OptionCart%20Software

    If you are comfortable with a little scripting, you can do it yourself without switching your whole site to optioncart.

    Yes I do know how to use mals-e, been using it over 5 years now. Thank you for the links about the cart and also to do the scripting myself. Will take a look at both.
    thanks
