Control what and how much your customers can buy
Do you need your customers to purchase a certain amount to make shipping worthwhile? Or do you need to stop them from buying too much to preserve stock? Whatever the reason, our Purchase Limits plugin gives you the ability to place limits on what and how much a customer can buy. Any limit you set must be met before the customer can proceed to checkout so you can be sure that each order you receive has met your criteria before being placed.
Limit pretty much everything
Have total control over your store by adding limits to products individually, as a group using categories or on the cart itself. You can limit either the quantity or the total value giving you finer control of your limits you set on your store.
Limit how much your customers can buy...
Stop your customers from buying too much by setting an upper quantity or value limit on one or more parts of your store. All customers must be under the limit you set for each part of your store (products, category or cart) before being able to continue to checkout.
...or force customers to buy enough
Not only can you set upper limits, the plugin also gives you the ability to set a lower limit on each part of your store (product, category or cart) also. Similar to upper limits, the lower limit must also be fulfilled (i.e. enough products in the cart to fulfill the limit) before being able to continue to checkout.
Fully customise all notifications
With the ability to set limits on multiple parts of your store, it is imperative that the customer is kept up to date throughout the whole shopping journey. Each and every limit has its own notification message that can be fully customised and will be shown as the customer shops keeping them fully up to date.
Set limits on every part of your store
With our Purchase Limits plugin, you can set limits on products, categories or the cart to totally control what and how much your customer can buy.
What can our Purchase Limits plugin do
Set limits on products
Whether its for all products in your store or on each product individually, you can set a limit on how much of each product can be bought by shoppers. Until the limit for each product is met, shoppers will not be able to checkout.
Set limits on the cart
Set a limit on either the total quantity of products in the cart, or the total value of the cart, or even a combination of the two. Until these limit are satisfied, shoppers will be stopped from being able to check out.
Set limits on categories
Similar to cart limits, set a quantity or total value limit for any category. Shoppers must have products in the cart from this category whose quantity or value meets the limits that have been set before they can continue to the checkout.
Required individual products or whole categories
Require shoppers to have certain products or products from a certain category in the cart before being able to checkout by setting these products to be required.
Fully customisable error messages and notifications
Fully customise each and every error message and notification for each limit using out robust templating system. Everything from the add to cart messages to the errors shown on the cart page can be customised easily.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
You've got questions, we've got the answers!
How do product limits work?
Product limits require the shopper to have a specific amount of that product in the cart before being able to check out.
How do category limits work?
Category limits work in much the same way as cart limits, but are only applied for products that belong to that category. When setting a limit on a category (both quantity or value), the shopper must have products from that category in their cart and the total quantity or total value of those products only must meet the category limit set before being able to check out.
What about variations? How are they handle?
Each variation will have its own limit so you can limit certain or all variations of a product individually. However, you can also limit the whole product if you are not concerned about each individual variation.
How do cart limits work?
Cart limits are applied to the total quantity of products in the cart or the total value of the products in the cart. The quantity or value must satisfy the limits set before the customer will be able to proceed to the check out.
What does requiring a product mean?
It means that the product (or a product from a required category) must be in the cart before the shopper can proceed to the checkout.
Do I have to set a minimum and a maximum limit?
No, you can set one only, or set both.
So shoppers won't be able to checkout until the limits have been met?
That's correct. Shoppers will be notified throughout the shopping process and will be shown messages on the cart page notifying them of the limits. They will not be able to proceed to the checkout until all limits are met.
