  • Encouraging larger purchases for high-value currencies: Implement higher minimum quantities for currencies with stronger purchasing power, potentially increasing average order value for those customers.
  • Managing foreign exchange fluctuations: Adjust minimum quantities for different currencies to mitigate potential risks associated with exchange rate fluctuations.

Enabling Currency-Specific Options

  • Go to WooCommerce > Settings.
  • Click on the Order Min/Max Amount tab.
  • Find the Currencies sub-tab.

Configuring Minimum Quantities

  • Enable section: Check this box to activate setting minimum quantities based on different currencies.
  • Section overriding: Using “-1” in amounts from other sections prevents this section from overriding them, allowing finer control over specific currencies.
  • Calculation method: Choose the preferred method for calculating minimum quantities based on exchange rates:
  • Fixed amounts: Set specific minimum quantities for each currency independently.
  • Exchange rate based: Calculate minimum quantities based on the exchange rate from a base currency.
  • Amount types per currency: Select the specific amount type (e.g., minimum quantity) you want to set for each currency.
  • Currencies: Choose the currencies you want to configure minimum quantities for from the provided list.


  • Save your changes after configuring the settings.
  • You can set individual minimum quantities for each chosen currency based on your requirements.
  • Consider the impact of exchange rates when setting minimum quantities using the exchange rate-based method.
  • Customize messages displayed to users regarding minimum quantity requirements for a more informative shopping experience.

By effectively utilizing currency-specific minimum quantities, you can cater to the needs of customers using different currencies, potentially optimize pricing strategies, manage exchange rate risks, and enhance the overall shopping experience within your multi-currency store.
