    PrestaShop Sell in Multiples of Quantities {User Guide}

    PrestaShop Sell in Multiples of Quantities module allows shop owners to sell a product in multiples of set quantity only.

    Using this module, a shop owner will be able to restrict a customer from buying a quantity that is not in multiples of the set quantity.

    Also, a customer will be unable to buy a quantity that is either less than the minimum quantity or greater than the maximum quantity allowed for purchase.

    This module will help particularly those merchants who want to sell products in a certain minimum quantity.

    It simply means that a customer will either be able to buy the minimum or maximum quantity or a quantity that is the multiple of incremental quantity.

    For example, Say you set 3 as incremental & minimum quantity & 30 as maximum quantity.

    So, now a customer can only select the following quantities at the time of purchase.

    3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30.

    Any other quantity apart from the above would not be available for the customer to buy.

    Workflow

    As per the sale unit configuration, you can see that the option to select a quantity less than 2 is not possible for the customer.

    Also, a message to notify about the same is available on the product page.

    A similar kind of message will also appear when a customer will try to add a quantity greater than the maximum allowed quantity.

    Additionally, here is a GIF to let you understand how this minimum incremental unit functionality works for the customer.

    You may notice in the following GIF that a customer is only able to select a quantity in multiples of 2. This is because the minimum increment quantity is 2.

    Also, you may notice that a customer is not able to select a quantity less than 2 & greater than 8.

    It’s because of the configuration setting where you have set the minimum quantity to buy as 2 & the maximum as 8.

    Product Settings

    Apart from the global sale unit configuration, you can also set it for the products individually.

    In case, if you are applying any different sale unit configuration of the product, then the individual product setting will override the global setting.

    Now, in the above screenshot, you can observe that we are keeping the incremental unit as 3 & minimum, maximum quantity as 3 & 9.

    Therefore, in the following GIF, you can observe that a customer is able to select a quantity in multiples of 3 only.

    You may also notice the change in the message when a customer tries to select a quantity less than 3 & greater than 3.
