Set up minimum order amount for products in a specific category
Magento Minimum Amount for Category enables shop owners to customize the minimum order amount for individual categories. To do so, admins can log in from backend, choose Catalog=> Manage categories, select category they wish to put the limit order amount on and fill in the minimum order amount they want for that category.
Show product category in shopping cart
Product category will be displayed in shopping cart. For products belonging to many categories, which category would be shown in shopping cart is depended on setting in backend.
Show a notification and hide “Proceed to Checkout” button when order amount requirements are not met
When the total amount of products per category in shopping cart less than the minimum order amount of that category, a notification will be displayed at the left top corner of the shopping cart page and “Proceed to Checkout” button will be hidden
Set up rules of minimum amount for products belonging to multiple categories
For a product belonging to multiple categories, the order amount will be the minimum or maximum amount among those categories. The choice of minimum or maximum amount is decided by admins in the backend. For instance, HTC Touch belongs to both “Cellphone” category (Minimum order amount $1000) and “Shirt” category (Minimum order amount $2000). If in backend, at “Select children category price”, admin chooses “Max Price”, then category of HTC Touch displayed shopping cart will be “Shirt” with minimum amount equals $2000.
Module also supports the setting of products in a category without minimum amount requirement while its parent category still under amount limitation. In this case, admin can easily choose to leave these products free from order amount restraints or make them follow the minimum rule of the parent category.
