Minimum Quantity Orders

Recommended Posts

I am building a wine store and trying to figure out how to make it so that customers can mix and match bottles and order in minimum purchases of 6 bottles (eg: 6 or 12 or 18 etc).  It is not at all economical for wineries to ship odd numbers, especially from regional areas (where most are located).  After some more research I have realised that a lot of wineries are using Shopify to do this, hoping I haven't made the wrong platform choice here!

Thanks

There isn’t a built-in feature to do this. You can set a minimum order value but you cannot set a minimum or fixed quantity.

It would be possible to write some code to prevent customers reaching the checkout with other quantities but there’s a small problem. We can only do this on the cart page and we cannot enforce what happens next - on the checkout page.

This is because code isn’t allowed in the checkout page. Yet, for some strange reason, Squarespace allows customers to amend the quantities (or delete products entirely) on the checkout page where we have no control. This makes it impossible to prevent orders from being received with other quantities.
