If your online business sends physical products to the customers, your profit is associated with how much or how little you spend on storage, packaging, shipping, and other product creation and production factors. Many times, store owners have to face low profit or no profit due to fewer orders of a particular type of product. Meetanshi has developed Limit Quantity Per Category for Magento 2 extension that allows the admin to set minimum and maximum order quantity per category for each customer group. This helps the admin to increase sales and profit margin.

The default Magento 2 only supports to set a minimum and maximum quantity in the shopping cart for each product. To restrict the product quantity per category based on the customer groups, the Min/Max Order Quantity per Category for Magento 2 extension comes into the picture. The extension allows the admin to set the minimum and maximum quantity per category to meet to checkout successfully. In case, the buyers add more or lesser quantity, they are shown an error message and they cannot proceed to checkout until they meet the quantity condition.

With Limit Quantity Per Category for Magento 2, manage the order fulfillment process that includes shipping and packaging in such a way that it does not reduce the profit margins!


How Does The Extension Work?

The admin enables the extension, enables the option to show the category name in the cart page, sets the error message to be displayed for the maximum quantity limit error and the minimum quantity limit error and sets quantity threshold per category for the customer groups. In the frontend, whenever the customers add the product to the cart, they can see the category name to double-check the items added to the cart. When they proceed to checkout by exceeding the quantity threshold value, they get the error message. Similarly, the error message is displayed on the cart page if the quantity does not reach the minimum value required.
