The Pro version allows you to set purchase limits on a more granular level

Per Product Taxonomy

  • Per product tag: Enable this option to set individual limits for product tags. A new meta box will appear on each product tag edit page for defining limits.
  • Per product category: Similar to tags, you can enable this option to set limits on product categories. A new meta box will be added to each product category edit page.
  • Per Product: Enable this option to set individual purchase limits for specific products. A new meta box will be added to each product edit page for defining limits.

Limits by Formula (Advanced)

This section provides an alternative approach for setting limits using formulas

  • Enable: Activate this option to define limits based on shortcodes.
  • Formula: Enter one shortcode per line.

Notes

  • Use the [alg_wc_mppu] shortcode within the formula.
  • The algorithm stops when it encounters the first matching shortcode (read top to bottom).

Available shortcode attributes include

  • user_id: Specify user ID(s).
  • user_role: Define user role(s).
  • membership_plan: (Requires additional integrations) Set limit based on membership plans.
  • (and several more related to memberships and payment methods)
  • product_id: (Requires enabling “Per product”) Set limit for specific product(s).
  • term_id: (Requires enabling relevant taxonomy) Set limit for specific categories/tags.
  • limit: This attribute is mandatory and specifies the limit value.

Important notes regarding attribute usage

  • product_id (and related attributes) can only be used with the “Per product” option enabled.
  • term_id can only be used with the corresponding taxonomy (“Per product category” or “Per product tag”) enabled.
  • payment_method requires enabling “Count by current payment method” and potentially disabling “Validate on add to cart” and “Block checkout page” for smoother checkout.
  • product_id and term_id cannot be used simultaneously in the same shortcode.
  • You can define a timeframe for the shortcode using start_dateend_date, and not_date_limit attributes.
  • product_limit_meta can only be used in combination with product_id.

Examples

  • [alg_wc_mppu limit=”18″ user_id=”2,5″]: Sets a maximum limit of 18 for users with IDs 2 and 5.
  • [alg_wc_mppu limit=”18″ user_id=”2,5″ product_id=”100,110″]: Sets a maximum limit of 18 for products 100 and 110 for users with IDs 2 and 5.
