Version 4.5.00 of B2BKing introduces a new feature: the ability to configure quantity rules (minimum, maximum and quantity step) directly on the product page (it was already possible via dynamic rules):
"Quantity step" refers to a required multiple, a box / carton quantity. For example if you sell a product which comes in boxes of 6, you can set this "Step" to 6, to prevent customers from purchasing different quantities. The plugin will force the quantity field to go from 6 to 12, 18, 24 etc.
Simply edit any product directly and go to the 'B2BKing' sidebar panel, and enter your desired quantity values:
There are separate rows for each group. The "regular" option applies to all users. If a group has a dedicated value, that value overrides the "regular" option for that group.
In the above screenshot, the minimum is 10 items, and the step is 5. This will apply to all users (b2c, logged out, b2b).
Let's look at another example:
In this example, b2c and logged out users will have a minimum of 10 items, and B2B users will have a minimum of 20 items.
In the case of variable products, the quantities will apply to each variation. If you need to set different values for different variations, that can be done via dynamic rules.
B2BKing has a powerful dynamic rules system through which you can configure much more complex rules and scenarios. Here are just a few examples of what you can do with rules:
Dynamic rules are very powerful. The purpose of the feature described in this article (quantity rules on product pages) is to help configure these faster and easier, without needing to set up and manage rules.
A big advantage and opportunity this feature introduces is the ability to now set a unique minimum or step for each product, directly by modifying that product's meta data, or using the WooCommerce importer.
If you go to Products -> Import, you can now find additional import options under "Quantity Rules":
You can use this to configure a CSV file of products and quantities and then import it.
Or if you are a developer and you prefer to edit the meta data directly, here are the meta keys you need to set:
If you need to enable or disable this feature, for example to test performance impact, you can do this via B2BKing -> Settings -> Other -> Components -> "Disable min / max / step on product page".
