Quantity for Buy on Google [sell_on_google_quantity]

Use the quantity for Buy on Google [sell_on_google_quantity] attribute to let customers know the total number of variants of a particular product that are available to buy on Google.

Google will take this value into account and decrement it with each one sold. For example, if you specify "12" for a given product and a user orders two products, Google knows that the next order on Buy on Google can only hold up to ten units of that same product.

When to use
