    Default Have Limited Supply

    Some possible usage issue:

    "We strive to provide customers with great prices, and sometimes that means we limit quantity to ensure that the majority of customers have an opportunity to order products that have very low prices or a limited supply."

    Is it standard English to write:

    "That product has a limited supply."

    ?

    Default Re: Have Limited Supply

    We would normally say that products "are in limited supply".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
