In the default Magento, admins can not limit the lowest amount for all items in the same category in a particular order. Hence, this may cause trouble if you want to control the marginal cost and revenue. The extension is developed to be an effective solution to this problem. Admins now can set a minimal limit for the total amount of products under a specific category in an order. It is an ideal tool to get a better control of the margin cost and revenue for your store.


  • Set up minimum order amount for products in a specific category

Once the module is installed on your site, a new option named Minimum Order Amount will be added for each category under Catalog/Manage Categories section. There, admins can easily set up the lowest limit for order amount per category

  • Show notification and hide checkout when 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.

  • Show product category in the shopping cart

The category containing the product will be shown as item details in the cart.

  • Set up rules for product belonging to multiple categories

For a product belonging to multiple categories, the order amount will be defined by either minimum or maximum amount among those categories. Admins can choose this settings at backend. For instance, Red T-Shirt belongs to both “Street Style” category (Minimum order amount $1000) and “Tee” category (Minimum order amount $2000). If you choose the maximum settings at backend, then category of Red T-Shirt displaying in shopping cart will be “Tee” with minimum amount equals $2000.





  • Stimulate customers to make more purchases

With the function of requiring customers to buy the enough amount of order before moving to the checkout process by a small but powerful notification to force customers to meet the needs of event’s amount of money. If they click the checkout button without passes the required amount, they will receive the notification for the requirement of the minimum amount of order. This is an effective stimulus to encourage customers to add more products to cart so they have the authorization to move to the checkout process. Eventually, your overall revenue will increase.

  • Help online shop owner to easily control the process of cash inflow and outflow
