  • im just straggling same issue like you have. finally I figure it out and im sharing with you. some times you have to separate issue what we need
    1) update field and 2) increase decrease numbers with php.
    lets get started im 100 percent sure you already checked Update_field() documentation
    so in the samples

    // Get the current value.
    $count = (int) get_field('my_number_field');
    // Increase it.
    $count += 1;
    // Update with new value.
    update_field('views', $count);

    if you add this code the page you working and if you use your own CF name every page refresh number will be decrease also if you replace the $count with ( -= 1; ) now every page refresh value will be decrees so step one Is in the pocket 🙂

    next step we need a simple php form to do that action by click

    $count = (int) get_field('my_number_field'); //first we need our field value 
    if(isset($_POST['increase'])){ // increase 1 if clicked 
       $count += 1;
    if(isset($_POST['decrease'])){ // decrease 1 if clicked
       $count -= 1;                                            
    <form method='post' action='#'> <!-- after click stay in this page -- >
           <button name='increase'>+</button>
    <input type='text' size='1' name='item' value='<?= $count; ?>'/> <!-- its will be shows you current value or you change manually   -- >
           <button name='decrease'>-</button>
