How To Set Up a Minimum Order Requirement

Table Of Contents

    One of the most common strategies for wholesale order is the minimum order quantity or subtotal requirements. It’s a fantastic way to boost the volume of items in an order. Our WooCommerce Wholesale Prices Premium has the feature to set this on your WooCommerce store.

    Minimum Order Requirements to ensure that your wholesale customers will not activate wholesale pricing if they don’t meet the requirements yet. Until they meet the requirements, they will see regular prices in the cart along with a notice to tell them how much they need to add before they will activate wholesale pricing.

    You’ll find the option to set this in the Wholesale Prices setting. Please navigate to WooCommerce > Setting > Wholesale Prices > General.

    Default Minimum Order Quantity, define a minimum number of items that wholesale customers must reach in the cart before they activate wholesale pricing.

    Default Minimum Order Subtotal, Define a minimum subtotal that wholesale customers must reach before they activate wholesale pricing for items in their cart.

    You can either use one of them or both, you can set it in the Minimum Order Requirement Satisfaction option.

    If you set it to AND, both minimum rules must be met in order for the wholesale customer to get the wholesale price.

    If you set it to OR, if one of the minimum rules is met, the wholesale customer will get the wholesale price. 

    As these rules applied by default, it’ll apply to all of your wholesale customer roles. If you’d like to lower or increase the minimum rules for a certain wholesale role, you can enable the Wholesale Role Specific Minimum Requirements option.
