HI Guys

This is a 2 spoke question but a simple one i think.
Can you limit buyers to how many item they can purchase of a particular product to two (2) in
1. eBay
2. Magento and make them sign up (No Guest checkout for this product)

I know you might this why would you want to do that! But you may want to run a promo loss leader campaign but stop your competitors buying 50 :)
PS. I know they could find a way round it. But just a general question

Hi Dale,

I understanding the reasoning for this, for both of these they need to be done at global level, so for ebay this would be a global setting for the entire account and for Magento, guest checkout I believe can be disabled, but not set at a per-product level without an extension to limit the buying.

Hi Dale,

It will be an option in site preferences in your my ebay.

I’m not sure if there is a precise setting for the number of items but there will be settings around buyer limitations.

Don’t expect much in the way of settings though! Ebay want more sales.
