Need Help with Stock Updates


Recommended Posts



I have a little problem with stock updates on my shop.

When customer pays by Money Order or check, then there's no problem - positions from the order are being instantly taken out of stock after customer goes through the checkout process.


Situation is different when customer decides to pay with paypal ( which is much more popular then MO/check option ).


I have kind of a strange IMO logs in Paypal IPN transaction details

Sometimes order is being taken out of stock and sometimes it isn't. It leads to very uncomfortable situations like, when two customers decide to buy 1 unique item from my website at the same time. I don't have a possibility to get another one as it's UNIQUE.


So my question is...


What kind of paypal payment module should i use to make it take orders out of stock instantly after the checkout process, regardless of the payment ?


I'd rather check if the payment was done manually ( I can resign from IPN module ) then explain customers why they item they want is not available.
