WooCommerce: Set Min Purchase Amount for Specific Product

We already studied how to set min/max WooCommerce add to cart quantity programmatically. That was an easy one. This time, I want to expand on the topic, and define a “minimum order amount on a per-product basis”.

Which, translated in plain English, would be something along the lines of “set the minimum purchase amount for product XYZ to $50”. And once we do that, I expect that the add to cart quantity does non start from 1 – instead it defaults to “$50 divided by product price”. If product price is $10, I would want to set the minimum add to cart quantity to “5” on the single product and cart pages.

Makes sense? Great – here’s how it’s done.

In this example, if I want to force $50 as minimum purchase amount, the product add to cart quantity will start from 5 and not 1.

PHP Snippet: Set Min Add to Cart Quantity for Specific Product Based on Min Amount Purchase @ WooCommerce Single Product & Cart Pages

In the example below, I’m setting a minimum purchase amount for product ID = 123 of $50. This function will need to act on the single product page and cart page. If product ID = 123 price is $9, the $min amount will be: ceil(50/9) = 6

	$min = 0;

	if ( 123 === $product->get_id() ) {
		$min = ceil( 50 / $_product->get_price() );
	$product_quantity = woocommerce_quantity_input( array(
		'input_name'   => "cart[{$cart_item_key}][qty]",
		'input_value'  => $cart_item['quantity'],
		'max_value'    => $_product->get_max_purchase_quantity(),
		'min_value'    => $min,
		'product_name' => $_product->get_name(),
	), $_product, false );
	return $product_quantity;


Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (before "?>" if you have it). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7+.

  1. So I guess that you prefer this method over the min-max plugin that is out there, especially if you only need it for a couple of products?
    I have the plugin installed and I’m using it. Would my installation work better if I get rid of the plugin and use this snippet instead?

    1. Yes, I guess that’s my idea re: quick and easy snippets vs complex plugins ๐Ÿ™‚
