Minimum order amount for shipping / local delivery

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Our business has a minimum order amount of $200 for delivery (shipping). How can I implement this on the cart so customers are not placing delivery orders under $200?

As we can't add plugins/code to the cart page, I'm not sure what else to do outside of placing a banner on the site/cart stating the delivery order minimum, but it is not ideal to be refunding orders that do not meet this requirement. Help?

I am not sure that I understand your question. Squarespace has a feature that allows you to set a minimum order amount for the checkout subtotal. Shoppers can't place an order until they meet that minimum value. 

Does this meet your needs? If it doesn't can you explain the issue in a little more detail. A link to your site may help to provide us with more context 🙂.

Thanks for the quick reply! Sorry, we offer local pick up as well as delivery. Local pick up is available for all orders but delivery is only available for orders over $200, so the minimum order amount for all orders doesn't work for us. I've seen this pop up throughout the forum from past years, so I would really like to know if there is yet a work around for this, as it is clearly a need for some businesses.

Thanks for clarifying the issue. There isn't a way to enforce a minimum order value on shipped orders and not enforce it on local pickup orders. 

Some thoughts on workarounds that may or may not help:

  • If you are on the Commerce Advanced plan and you offer free delivery on orders over $200 then you can create an automatic discount for "free shipping over $200". You could then have a high shipping charge for shipped orders that don't meet this threshold.
  • You could use some code to add messaging to the cart page explaining that your minimum order value rule applies to shipped orders. However, it will still be possible for users to ignore this advice and place orders under this value with shipping selected. This could result in additional payment processing fees (as they are payable even when an order is cancelled) and additional admin.

Are you aware if this will be reviewed at all?

I am not aware of any plans to change the way this works. However, you can request this as a feature by raising a support ticket through Squarespace Customer Support.
