    Asked by churchsaver on February 12, 2015 at 06:46 PM

    When using jotform purchase order for payment tools, is there a way to make it to where a person has to have a minimum order Or they get a message saying that they have to have a minimum order if it's not enough?

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, there's not direct option or function to set a minimum number of quantity in payment tools. But, we could make a work around using Conditions.

    Here's a sample form that I made: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50428754281962 

    1. Basically I set the default quantity of my product to 10 so that users can get a hint that it's the minimum.

    2. After that, I then add a "Text" field that will act as a warning message.

    3. Click the "Conditions" in your toolbar, choose "Show / Hide Form Field"

    4. Set rules and actions for your condition block. In my case, if "new product" field quantity is less than 10 then show the "Text" field and hide the submit button. Hiding the submit button will prevent the user to proceed.

     

    I hope this helps. Do let us know if you need more information on this.

    Thank you.

    Not sure if anyone still monitoring this question but just in case:  Could I use this as a way to limit total purchases to multiples of 12?   I thought I could make the minimum order 12, but put in a message that says must be multiples of 12.  I can't find the condition options.
