Control your product quantities like you never did before!

Have you ever felt the need to expand the functionality of your digital store by supervising the quantities of products? Customers can pick and choose any quantity of goods on your WordPress website as soon as you install WooCommerce and that is where you need a plugin to put a constraint on quantities as per your business preferences.

It’s time to level up because WPWhale brings you the most convenient plugin enabling you to oversee product quantities on your WooCommerce store. Use this user-friendly, expedient, and all-in-one plugin so you can control minimum and maximum quantities, adjust quantity steps, enable decimal quantities, define units, and the list goes on!

Quantity control plugin is one of the most functional and practical plugins as it allows you to specify the product quantities you want to sell on your online store. Hence, you will be effectively examining and aligning production, shipping costs, and income to appraise the profits and calculate expenditures. It’s a one-stop solution to all your worries!

Generate more revenue by modulating product quantities

Min Max Quantity Plugin will allow you to adjust the minimum and maximum quantities your customers can select. Furthermore, you can fully control the quantity steps and set a default quantity as well.

  • Define your products Minimum, Maximum, Intevnal (Step), and even Fixed Quantities

The plugin will give you full control over everything related to the plugin, whether defining a min-max quantity, step, or even random numbers (like 1, 3, 5, 10). You name it, we have it.

  • Assign Decimal values and use Dropdown Options

With this plugin, you will be having all advanced quantity rules at one location. In case your store is selling stuff like spices, fruits, and vegetables, then you will be needing decimal quantities so your customers can navigate easily. Similarly, you can use this plugin for showing all the allowed quantities in drop-down form instead of the quantity input field.

  • Customize your website fields to make them look more appealing

Use this plugin to display pricing units with products to reflect the unit you are selling your goods for. Moreover, illustrate a total price based on selected product quantity and let customers get an idea by choosing instead/after/before the original price fields. Pretty cool, right?

  • Validate product quantities before they add them to their carts

Customers often place products in their carts in the wrong quantities. This plugin will validate quantities before they reach the cart and generate customized notifications for these messages as well. In this way, the wrong quantities won’t be reaching the carts!

What this plugin can do for your store?

  1. Minimum/Maximum Quantity Control:

Does your store sell products that need to be in the specified minimum amount? This can be useful for wholesale stores, where you need to force your customers to buy a minimum quantity other than the default 1.

Or maybe you sell bottles (water, juice) that need to be sold in minimum & step quantities of 6 (so it fits packaging).

The same goes for maximum quantity, some stores want to limit the quantity a customer can buy so they better manage their inventory.

This is where our min-max quantities features come useful as they allow you to set a minimum and maximum quantity of the products.

Defining these values can happen on multiple levels, listed by order of priority (which will be applied):

  1. Product level (works on simple & variable products)
  2. Category / attribute level
  3. Global (applies to all products at once)
  4. Cart level

Setting up minimum and maximum quantities of online goods proves to be cost-effective and profitable as store owners can have a rough idea of the income they will be making. This helps you in estimating the minimum and maximum revenue you will be generating from the online store.

  1. Step/Increment Quantity Control

Do you also want your customers to select only some specific quantities of products and not any quantity they prefer? Having a full charge over the quantities your customers can choose will be more feasible for you as it will make your orders more manageable.

Some call it step, others say increment, and many use the term interval, regardless of what you name it, our plugin offers this!

For instance, you need to sell your goods in multiples of 4 so that it is easier to ship them. Based on your delivery or warehouse setup, you can use this plugin to define quantity steps in which your customers can purchase products.

This feature is a treasure for stores specializing in printing services, like cards, brochures, flyers, you don’t want your customers to buy 152 cards for instance! Based on your printing machines, you can define a minimum of 100, and an interval of 100 for example, so orders won’t come in random quantities.

These steps or interval quantities can be defined based on order level for the sake of shipping packages.

Similar to minimum & maximum quantities, increment quantities can also be defined on the basis of product, category, and cart levels.

Choose quantity steps for each kind of product and relax. In this way, this plugin gets you covered even if you have different types of products in your store.

  1. Default Quantity Control

Would you like to show a different quantity (other than 1) on the product page load?

Often, there are times when the default behavior for the purchase is not to get only 1. For instance, bananas will be sold in 1 dozen or 12. Similarly, it is very unlikely for customers to buy 1 apple.

This is where you will need a default quantity feature allowing customers to choose a specific default quantity like 4, 6, or 12. Although customers can choose lower than that, even if that’s not the default.

Hence, this plugin will allow you to create a default quantity that appears on the product page when your customers are browsing the store. You will be able to define the default quantities for all products at once, per product, or category. It’s a pretty simple and convenient feature!

  1. Fixed Quantity Control

Depending on the situation of your business or the number of goods in stock, you will sometimes want to sell only fixed or allowed quantities of products to customers.

For instance, your store is offering free shipping but that is only viable when they choose a certain quantity of products and that is where this feature comes in handy.

Think of textile products, sometimes you want to sell in 1, 3, 5, 10 meters, this can’t be forced with the mix of minimum & step features, this feature will allow you to exactly specify what quantities your customers can buy (or actually can’t, since it also offers disallowed quantities section).

Should we remind you that this works on product level (simple & variable), category level, or cart level? We believe you already guessed so.

  1. Quantity Dropdown

You’re not a big fan of quantity input fields? The +/- buttons are annoying on mobile screens? Replace the field with a nice & neat dropdown menu.

Also when you force quantities, maybe it would be easier for customers to see what quantities they are allowed to buy (instead of doing calculations based on min & step quantities defined), a dropdown menu here comes handy!

Min Max Default Quantity Plugin offers a quantity drop-down feature that turns your regular input field into a dropdown showing the quantities customers can purchase. It show values based on different conditions:

  1. Min to maximum quantities defined (along with step of course)
  2. Allowed quantities will appear in dropdown as well
  3. If you haven’t define maximum, you can define a “fallback value” so it stops there when no max is defined

This will make it easier for the customers to navigate through and view all the available options, a pretty neat feature right?

  1. Quantity Field on Archive/Shop/Category Pages

As an online store owner, your priority must be the ease and convenience of your customers. The more user-friendly the interface is, the more motivated they will be to buy your products!

Therefore, you certainly need a feature on your plugin that allows your customers to change quantity & add to the cart right from your archive pages, shop pages, or category pages. This plugin will permit you to add a quantity field or dropdown on categories/shop pages so customers can select their desired quantities from there.

Consequently, the customers will face less of a hassle as they will be able to add products from any page to their cart resulting in more purchases and bigger revenue. All thanks to this cool feature!

  1. Total Price by Quantity

Your online store illustrates the price per product but what about the total price after the customers have chosen a certain quantity?

For instance, your store is selling 1 jacket for $126 but when the customer has chosen 7 jackets, they cannot view the total price of the selected quantity of jackets before getting to the cart.

The ‘Total Price by Quantity’ feature is all what you need, you can select to show the total price based on the quantity selected by the customer on the product page. You can also display the field ‘instead/after/before the original price’ so that the customers can get an idea in a better way and the purchasing process becomes easier for them.

  1. Pricing Unit

We believe that instead of just showing the price and letting the customers solve the rest of the puzzle is an unpleasant experience. It is better to demonstrate the pricing unit with the price as well. For instance, $10 for 1 KG or $10 for a water bottle.

The Price Unit feature will let you exhibit customized text next to the price to reflect the unit you’re selling the product for.

You can define the value globally (all products at once), per category, or for every product to make sure all the products are showing the correct units.

Other features that will make the purchase of this plugin even more worth it:

We have presented some of the finest and essential features offered by the Min Max Default Quantity plugin but that is not everything. Several other features are proving that this plugin is the most rewarding, valuable, and productive. Some of those features are:

  • The plugin can validate quantities enabled before adding them to the cart, so your customers cannot reach the cart with the wrong quantities, you can also customize messages for these notifications.
  • Show all your product quantity info (min/max/step) on product pages so your customers are aware of the different quantity options they have.
  • Rounding options, you can round up/down quantities to nearest correct quantities
  • Disable/exclude plugin for specific products or categories
  • Allow/disallow quantity based on user role

And much more!
