Set minimum qty of product variant - how?

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

How do I set a minimum order quantity per product variant? (f.e. if they select variant 2, the minimum number of products they can buy = 25)
I'm already looking for a solution for days, but just don't know how.

Hail to the King that has a solution!ūü§ī

Cheers - Luc

This would need to be a bespoke scripted solution that prevented the add to cart button from being clicked unless the minimum quantity rule was matched. 

However, it would still be possible for the user to adjust quantity in the basket view (could be scripted to deal with this) and also in the checkout (cannot be scripted to deal with).

Do you happen to know where one might find said script? I'm having the same issue. Some dude online is selling a plugin for $29...that's looking more tempting all the time lol

 

Thanks!

The code required to set a minimum order quantity is very straightforward, but as Colin said, the major issue is that the benefit is completely lost at the checkout stage. At that point, the potential customer can order items below your minimum quantity, leaving you with the additional admin of issuing a refund. 

The plugin you mention is no different. As the author points out in his demo video "There's no code that can be placed on the checkout page.. so customers could come into this quantity field and change the quantity [below the minimum]".
