Hi,

I'm looking for a way on how to limit transactions to one item and one quantity only per checkout.

 

Thank you

Hi there @Besguerra!

 

Don here from Shopify. :)

 

The first thing that comes to mind for your requirements is the Order Limits (MinMaxify) app.

 

I know that this will allow you to set a maximum (as well as minimum) product quantity.

 

From your post here, it sounds like you also want to restrict which products a customer can purchase as well as limiting the quantity of that item to one per customer?

 

I'm not 100% certain, but it does sound from the app store page description that this app should also be able to limit:

 

* Number of items for a specific product
* Number of items within a group of products

 

If you want to be totally sure of any aspect of using this app I would reach out to its developers using the contact details listed on the app store page as they will be able to field any queries you have about using this app.

 

Should you prefer to get this functionality coded into your store rather than using an app, you can also consider hiring an Expert Developer to create a private app or otherwise handle this using a custom-coded solution.

 

Are you still getting set up with your business here or have you been selling for a while already?

 

 

Regards,

Don

You can use this app, which is very affordable. I have been using for a bit and the customer service is excellent. https://magecomp.com/shopify-limit-qty-purchase.html It remembers customers and purchase history. It is pretty easy to set up. It goes by product name. It is really great for digital products. You can also set this to where it is limit 1 or however many per checkout. Very customizable.

Hi Don,

 

 

I feel like this is the type of feature that should be built into shopify by now, it's quote simple and a lot of people want to use it. Would you ever consider integrating it?

 

Thanks

Hi there @ShopStore201!

Don from Shopify once again.

Thanks for letting us know that this is something you feel is important for and helpful to your business.

What I can do for you from here is to file a feature request for this on your behalf with our developer team.

This is how we let them know what our merchants are hoping to see added to the platform in the future and why it matters for them.

In order to best do so, it would be great if you could share your store's URL here (this is not mandatory, but helps us to better understand what kind of businesses are looking for this) as well as some info on why you want to see this in the platform.

With that info, I'll be able to file that request as outlined.

I look forward to hearing from you!

 

Regards,

Don

I'm quite surprised that this is not a standard feature in one of the biggest e-commerce platforms in the world.

Yes I was looking for the same feature. I have a customer that just buys up one particular product as soon as it's available - I'm guessing for resale. Since I use it to attract traffic its not good for business. It can't be that unusual to have this limit of product per order requirement.

We also need this feature. I don't know how Shopify doesn't have this as standard in their platform either. Especially with what's happening in 2020. We have TONS of resellers just buying everything we have of certain items. We need to be able to limit it.

I'd love to use this feature as well. It would be great if this was offered natively in Shopify.

Agreed.

 

It's kind of sad how little Shopify has as a standard e-commerce platform.

 

Rather they force you into paying dozens of monthly subscriptions for very simple and basic e-commerce features. (These should be one time payments by the way for 90% of the "apps" that are offered in the marketplace. I can't help but think these people are getting rich and fat off recurring revenues from items where it is a one-time install.)

 

Come on Shopify, let's get with the program!
