E-Commerce: Purchase Limit

E-Commerce is not automatically available in the LMS. If your organization is interested in using the E-Commerce functionality, please contact your Account Manager.

Purchase Limit

Admin Refresh Experience: E-Commerce

Table of Contents


The Purchase Limit feature provides a currency maximum amount limit that is applied to the default settings so that users purchasing training within the LMS cannot exceed the desired limit. If a user attempts to exceed the cart limit, an error will display and not allow them to proceed. This option will protect the client from exploitation. For instance, there could be a malicious user that makes a bulk content purchase for resale when the client is having a content sale. 


How to Configure Purchase Limit

E-Commerce will need to be enabled in order to configure your LMS to have a Purchase Limit. If E-Commerce is not enabled, please contact Absorb Support. 

Please follow the below steps in order to set up the Purchase Limit:

Step 1

Navigate to the Portal Settings by clicking the silhouette icon from the top right-hand side of the Admin portal. Choose Portal Settings from the sub-menu.  You will be routed to the Info page.

Step 2

From the action menu on the right-hand side of the Portal Setting page, select Manage E-Commerce Settings. You will be routed to the Settings page. 

Step 3

Scroll down to Purchase Limit and enter in the number amount that the purchase cannot exceed.

Note: The number entered into the Purchase Limit field will not change based on the currency being used in the Checkout.  For instance, if 1,000 is entered into this field, then it will equal 1,000 U.S. Dollars, 1,000 Euros,1,000 CAD, and so on.

System Admins are the only Admins who can adjust settings within the Portal Settings. Once the Purchase Limit option has been populated, all other Admins will need the following permissions in order to configure the E-Commerce rules.
