For example, when the corporate office gives a user the ability to purchase 15 uniforms per year, and directly bill those to the company. In the event the user attempts to purchase more than 15, the store would require payment by credit card over the 15-item limit. Each year, the allowance would refresh and allow a new 15, directly billed to the company.
