Key features

  • 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.

Why Magento Minimum order amount for category is your must have extension?

Considering marginal revenue and marginal cost an order could bring back, online shop owners sometime might want to set up a minimum order amount for a particular category so that only when customers’ total amount in shopping cart meet that requirement, can they proceed to checkout. Understand that demand, BSSCommerce has developed an smart module called Minimum Amount for Category which allow admin to put a minimum restraints on order amount of each category.

  • Encourage customers to purchase more

In order to avoid tiny order amount, setting the minimum order amount is the optimal choice. By configuring minimum order amount for different categories, shop owners are indirectly encouraging customers to purchase more to meet the order amount limitation.

One side, you can elude order that its value does not worth its cost. On the other side, you force customers to buy more, which at the same time, maintains and even increase your marginal profits.
