    Multi-vendor Marketplace for Shopify- Minimum Purchase Amount

    Multi-vendor Marketplace App helps you to convert your store into a multi-functional marketplace. You can register multiple sellers & allow them to publish their products on your store. The app is loaded with tons of features and recently introduced a new one “Minimum Purchase Amount for Orders“.

    With this feature, You can allow your sellers to set a Minimum Purchase Amount for Orders. Thus, sellers can restrict the purchase of the customers by setting up a minimum order value.

    Now, once the customer adds a product to the cart, he/she can proceed to checkout only if the checkout condition satisfies i.e. the validated cart amount should be greater than or equal to the minimum purchase amount set by the seller. Else, the customer will not be able to proceed to check out.

    Let’s understand it with an example:-

    Price of Product A: $500, Price of Product B: $1000
    Minimum Purchase Amount for orders: $600

    Customer A adds Product A to Cart worth $500 i.e. Total Order Amount=$500:
    FAILED TO CHECK OUT (as the Total Order Amount $500 < Minimum Purchase Amount $600)

    Customer B adds Product B to Cart worth $1000 i.e. Total Order Amount=$1000:
    CHECK OUT SUCCESSFULLY (as Total Order Amount ($1000) > Minimum Purchase Amount ($600)

    One Limitation:-

    Please Note:- Discount codes can be applied on check out page i,e. If the checkout condition satisfies (i.e. the cart amount exceeds the minimum purchase amount), the customer will proceed to checkout. But further, the customer can apply a discount on the order that may result in the final order amount lesser than the minimum purchase amount.

    Thus, the order amount can be less than the minimum purchase amount set by the seller once the discount applied.

    Let’s understand it in detail.

    This functionality is also compatible with Slot Pricing feature app where the seller will be able to choose whether he wants to apply “minimum purchase” for “All Customers” or “Specific Tagged Customers“.
