Customers will not be able to checkout until they meet your declared requirement. Also, notifications will be shown on the single product page as well as on the cart page to assist customers to correct the quantity or amount.
Minimum-Maximum Quantity Rule for All Products
The feature discharges an option to set a minimum and a maximum quantity for each and every product in your e-store. Once you set these limits, customers will not be able to purchase the quantity fewer or more than the declared range.
For instance, if you set a minimum number of products to 5 and maximum products to 20, it means your customers are not allowed to buy products less than the quantity 5 or more than the quantity 20.
Minimum-Maximum Price Rule for All Products
Like the minimum-maximum quantity rule, you can also set minimum and maximum price rules storewide for each product. When the price range is set, a customer has to consider a minimum amount of price as well as a maximum amount to make a purchase.
For example, if the minimum total amount required to buy a certain product is set to 100 dollars and the maximum is set to 300 dollars, it means a customer cannot place an order if the price goes below 100 dollars or above 300 dollars. The feature declares the minimum and the maximum total price required for each product.
Step Count to Sell Products in Group
Grab the opportunity to push your customers to buy the minimum number of products or the multiples of the minimum numbers by setting ‘Quantity Group of’.
With this feature, when your customers want to purchase a product, the minimum quantity of the product will be shown on the single product page and the cart page by default. If the customer intends to increase the product quantity from the product page or in the cart, it will increase collectively.
For example, If a product has the minimum quantity of 5, the maximum quantity of 20, and the ‘Quantity group of’ is set to 5; a customer will see the minimum quantity of 5 in the product and cart page by default. Increasing the quantity will use step count in this case, such as 5, 10, 15, and 20, or vice versa. But step count will not work if the minimum quantity and the maximum quantity are not divisible by the number provided in the ‘Quantity group of’ field.
Product Quantity Rule for Cart
If you like to set limits to the total number of products a customer can buy, you can do that as well. The product quantity rule for the cart determines the minimum and the maximum number of products that can be added to the cart. When you set the quantity limit, customers can only buy the number of products allowed on the cart.
If the minimum cart quantity is set to 5 and the maximum cart quantity is set to 10, a customer cannot place an order of fewer than 5 products or more than 10 products.
Product Price Limit for Cart
Want to take control over the product price on the cart? You can easily set your permitted minimum order amount and maximum order amount so it will force the customer to meet the required conditions to make any purchase.
For example, if the minimum cart amount is set to 100 and the maximum cart amount is set to 200, a customer can add products to the cart within this given range.
Product-specific Minimum-Maximum Quantity and Price Rule
Apart from the global rule, if you want to set a specific rule to apply per product, you can set the rule right from the product edit screen. Provided that, the rule will overwrite the global rule. You need to set min/max boundaries to each product from your product page for both quantity and price like you did for the global settings. If the product belongs to a category that is conditioned with a min-max rule, you can also ignore the category rule from the product page if needed.
Min Max Quantity and Price restrictions for Variable Products
Do you sell variable products? Like a red small-sized T-shirt? Pairs of Nike shoes in different sizes and colors? For products like these, you can set separate min/max rules to cover each product’s variation. You will also find an option to override the global rules as well as an option to ignore category rules while you are adding min/max rules for the variations.
For the parent product, you can also allow combinations for the applied min-max condition. For example, if the minimum quantity is set to 10 and the maximum quantity is set to 20 for a parent product, allowing combination gives you an option to choose any variations within the given range.
Category Specific Minimum-Maximum Rules
Category-specific min-max rules will give you even more control for a group of products. When the rule is set, customers are allowed to buy the products from a specific category within the pre-assigned rule.
For example, If a category has a minimum quantity limit of 10 and the maximum is 20, customers will not be able to purchase fewer than 10 pieces or more than 20 pieces of each product. Also, if a category has a minimum total quantity of 10 and a maximum total quantity of 20, users can purchase any products within the given range.
If you do not want to deploy any min-max rules for certain products, you can do that by simply enabling ‘Ignore Min Max rule’ from the corresponding product page. If the Ignore min-max rule is enabled, no rule will work onto that product except the cart rule. Ignore global min-max rules that can also be deployed for the variable product.
Messages can be set and will be shown if product quantity and price for orders do not converge with the predetermined rules. Messages will appear for the following errors when-
- Product quantity is below or above the min/max rules
- Total product quantity is below or above the min/max rules
- Products don’t obey group quantity conditions
- Product price is below or above the min/max rules
