Reserving product while checking out. Avoiding parallel buying and negative inve...
As far as I can tell from my testing cases, it is possible to have 1 item (last in stock) and for two people to buy it at the same time.
This ends up with the scenario that you have two successfully paid orders of an item you only had 1 in stock of.
Is there a way to avoid this problem inbuilt in the shop, or a possible way to work around it by manually marking the item as sold while someone has it in their cart etc.? Or another option; on the last step of making the payment; making sure the product hasn't been sold while you were checking out yourself? Not the greatest user experience of course, to go through the whole checkout, only to – after paying – get feedback that "Sorry, the item is sold out".
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
