Title: Order in multiples
Post by: mmp on May 26, 2015, 14:10:38 pm
Hi all

not sure if this has been asked already, what my client would like to do is if a client orders something they would like to have the items only be able to be ordered in multiples of 4, its bottled items and if difficult to ship, is there a way i can do this? i must not be 4 of the same item but even if a message comes up stating they only ship in multiples of 4.

Thanks

Set the minimum purchase quantity

And the purchase quantity steps on the product/status page

Hi Hutson

Thanks for your reply, so in essence i would state min order is 4 and then steps would also be 4?
is that correct?

Even if i can just have a notification display to the client that would be great.

What do you mean?
If you mean adding steps to each item, this will not work as the client does not want the customers to need to purchase  4 of the same item, but to order 4 of any items.
