For individual product types that cannot be sold at small quantity due to high packaging cost and delivery complication, it is vital that store owner can determine a minimum amount as the necessary condition for the customer to proceed to checkout. However, because of limitations in Magento default, the minimum quantity can only be applied for simple products, not configurable products. This article will introduce a quick and effective way to set min quantity for the configurable product.
What are Magento default’s limitations?
Although admin can easily set minimum quantity for each product, this function is limited just for the simple product. If you want to set the minimum amount for the configurable product, the most feasible option you can try is to apply for each children product of the configurable product. However, that solution still cannot meet your expectation of setting minimum product quantity for checkout of all children products of a configurable product.
What is the solution to this limitation?
