Any free app that can set the max quantity each customer can purchase?

Hi, 

Is there any free app that can set the max quantity each customer can purchase for a particular product?

For example, I can set a maximum limit of 1 for this particular product. Therefore the customer can only purchase a maximum of 1 for this particular product, but not limited to 1 for other products.

Thanks

Monsterlittle

Hi @Monsterlittle,

Hyde here from Shopify. Apologies for the late reply!

I am not aware of any free apps, but Order Limits MinMaxify is a well-respected veteran app that offers precisely the solution you need - I'd recommend consulting with them to see if their app suits your needs.

Could you talk me through what you're doing a little more so I can offer more advice? Are you using inventory limits to create a sense of urgency or scarcity? Is it a marketing strategy? I'd love to know more!

All the best, Hyde.

Hi Hyde,

No worries. Thanks for your suggestion.

I have some items that are limited and I do not wish those items to be purchased by only a few people.

Plus there is a possibility that those items might be listed and sold elsewhere at a higher price. In order to avoid this, I have to limit a maximum of 1 item per person.

Hope this answer your question.

@Monsterlittle a contrived workaround can be to use the discount system with has some configurations that let you limit the discount use to 1 per customer like the BUY X GET Y.

For a BUY X GET Y approach this means you need some two product contrivance and customers need to know to add both products to the cart.

Or with a % off  you need to raise the price of the product so high that the discount has to be used, or find a tutorials that auto adds a manual discount code to a users cart.

There are also some maximum quantity tutorials but it varies by which theme you have and your skill level with code.

 

If your product is sensitive use the apps available as you need to not just limit purchasable amounts on the website but also make sure invalid orders don't get fulfilled if they get through the frontend.

 

For just a frontend theme customization that restricts add to cart quantities you can contact me at paull.newton+shopifyforums@gmail.com with store url and use case details and budget.
