Description

With “Maximum Products per User for WooCommerce” plugin you can limit the number of items your WooCommerce customers can buy. Item limits for user can be set on lifetime basis or in selected date range (i.e. not per order). Limits can be set for all products at once, on per product basis, per product category or per product tag. You can choose if you want to limit product quantities, prices (i.e. sums) or weights.

Main Features

  • Set maximum products number per user.
  • Select plugin mode: product quantities, product orders, product prices (including or excluding taxes), product weights, or product volumes.
  • Set date range (for example: lifetime, this month, this year, last 30 days, last 365 days or custom date range).
  • Set on which order statuses product data should be updated.
  • Set different maximum product limits for different user roles.
  • Enable variable products variations usage.
  • Customize customer message on frontend.
  • Block checkout page on exceeded limits.
  • Exclude products from plugin scope.
  • Edit and export each user’s sales data.
  • Choose which payment gateways should update product data.
  • Display remaining amount, maximum limits, etc. to the users in cart, checkout, single product page, on “My account” page, or with a shortcode anywhere on your site.
  • Identify guests by IP address or block guests from buying products in your shop.
  • Hide products with exceeded limits for the current user.
  • Enable multi-language support (WPML, Polylang).
  • Set product limits per product category.
  • Set product limits per product tag.
  • Set product limits per individual product.
  • Set product limits by formula, for example: per user ID, per membership plan, per payment method, etc.
  • And more…
While data is recalculated automatically (but only after the plugin was enabled), you can also force manual recalculation by running Recalculate sales data tool. This is useful on initial plugin install (i.e. to calculate sales data from before the plugin was enabled).

    I always value a plugin not only by its features, but by its support. Tom has been fantastic at helping me get this plugin adapted to the specifics of my stores needs. I have tried another plugin prior and honestly their support is the worst. I will always pay more for a plugin/app/software if the reviews have killer support so I know Tom and this plugin deserved it. Not to mention the plugin itself is feature rich. Thanks Tom 🙂

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. I'm seeing No data yet text in "Maximum Products per User: Sales Data" meta box.

A. While data is recalculated automatically (but only after the plugin was enabled), you can force manual recalculation with Recalculate sales data option in the "Tools" section (in "WooCommerce > Settings > Maximum Products per User > Tools"). This is useful on initial plugin install (i.e. to calculate sales data from before the plugin was enabled). Please note that by default product quantities are updated when order status is changed to Completed.


Q. I've configured the plugin, but my customers can still finish the order with an exceeded quantities.

A. Please check what order statuses are set to be counted in "WooCommerce > Settings > Maximum Products per User > Order statuses". By default it's set to "Completed" orders only. Don't forget to "Recalculate sales data" after changing the "Order statuses" option. If that is not the case - there is "Editable sales data" option in "WooCommerce > Settings > Maximum Products per User > Admin". If you enable it and then go to some user's profile page (i.e. in "Users" menu), you will be able to see which products did this user buy - that may help to understand what's going on.


Q. My customers can reach the checkout page with an exceeded quantities (they are correctly not allowed to finish the order though).

A. Please make sure that "Block checkout page" option in checked in "WooCommerce > Settings > Maximum Products per User > Frontend".


Q. Can I limit the total number of products, i.e. set maximum limit for total number of products instead of per product.

A. Yes, this can be done, however, you'll need to assign all your products to some category or tag. After that you need to enable "Per product category" (or "Per product tag") option in "WooCommerce > Settings > Maximum Products per User > Limits", and then set "Limit per user" option for that category (or tag) (in "Products > Categories > Your category > Edit") to the total number of products you need.

alg_wc_mppu_date_to_check filter

You can set custom date range with "Date range" option in "General" plugin settings, however, if you need start date to be dynamic, i.e. to depend on some variable params, you can use alg_wc_mppu_date_to_check filter. Please note that if you are using the "Lifetime" date range, then "Advanced > Lifetime from totals" option must be disabled for this filter to be applied. Date must be returned as a timestamp.

Example #1

Let's say, you want to limit max quantity based on user's membership plan. In this case, you would set "Formula" to something like this:

[alg_wc_mppu limit="3" membership_plan="silver"]
[alg_wc_mppu limit="36" membership_plan="gold"]

Now let's say, you want "silver" users to buy max 3 products per month, while "gold" users should be able to purchase max 36 products per year. In this case, you would need to set "Date range" option to "Last 365 days" (i.e. for "gold" members) and modify date range for "silver" members with the filter:

add_filter( 'alg_wc_mppu_date_to_check', 'my_alg_wc_mppu_date_to_check', 10, 3 );
if ( ! function_exists( 'my_alg_wc_mppu_date_to_check' ) ) {
    /**
     * Sets "date to check" for "silver" membership to "last 30 days".
     */
    function my_alg_wc_mppu_date_to_check( $date_to_check, $date_range, $current_time ) {
        return ( wc_memberships_is_user_active_member( get_current_user_id(), 'silver' ) ? ( $current_time - MONTH_IN_SECONDS ) : $date_to_check );
    }
}

Example #2

Let's say, you want start date to be equal to user's membership subscription start date:

add_filter( 'alg_wc_mppu_date_to_check', 'my_alg_wc_mppu_date_to_check', 10, 3 );
if ( ! function_exists( 'my_alg_wc_mppu_date_to_check' ) ) {
    /**
     * Maximum Products per User: Sets "date to check" to current user's membership start date.
     */
    function my_alg_wc_mppu_date_to_check( $date_to_check, $date_range, $current_time ) {
        foreach ( wc_memberships_get_membership_plans() as $membership_plan_id => $membership_plan ) {
            if ( wc_memberships_is_user_active_member( get_current_user_id(), $membership_plan_id ) ) {
                $user_membership = wc_memberships()->get_user_memberships_instance()->get_user_membership( get_current_user_id(), $membership_plan_id );
                $date_to_check   = get_post_modified_time( 'U', false, $user_membership->post );
                if ( ! $date_to_check ) {
                    $date_to_check = $user_membership->get_start_date( 'timestamp' ); // Fallback
                }
                return $date_to_check;
            }
        }
        return $date_to_check;
    }
}
