We are a sports tech company running tournaments in the US. Many people love our jersey designs, so we decided to start selling custom kits for teams.
We already use Shopify for some of our leftover merch for each event. However, we need a solution to help track and invoice these orders.
Option A: Team Kit that includes home & away jerseys, pants or shorts, and a hat. The jerseys are CUSTOM and must include the player's Name and Number. The minimum order is for 10 players.
Option B: Custom Jerseys that include player name and number with a minimum order of 12
Is there an app that allows us to both set a MINIMUM (order must be greater than X in case they want to buy more than the min) and Customize each item in the order? That way, the individual ordering it can input their teammate's names & numbers so we have it stored.
Thanks in advance.
The way I would handle this is to use a 'custom product options' app (https://apps.shopify.com/search?q=product%20options), to support being able to enter the 'names' for each jersey. But I would do it as a single product, with just one name to enter, and then they would have to 'add to cart' for each individual player. Ex. if there are 10 jerseys needed, they would 'add to cart' 10 separate times.
I would then use the MinMaxify app (https://apps.shopify.com/order-limits-minmaxify) to set a minimum order value amount (ex. orders must be over $500 or the customer can't checkout).
The problem with trying to do just one product page, with 10+ fields for the player names, and then only using the product options app, is that there's not really an easy way to have a different amount of players/sizes. Ex. you could easily have it set to exactly 10 players, and then have 10 fields for their names, but then if the jerseys aren't all the same size (which they probably wouldn't be, unless it's a team of clones), then you wouldn't be able to pick the sizes. Also, what if there's 11 players ... then there's not really a good way to handle adding an extra player to the order.
So it makes more sense to just have it be a product for 1 player, and then have the customer select the size and enter the name, then add-to-cart, for each player that they need. If you do it this way, then the only thing you need to do is limit the minimum order, using the above app. The MinMaxify app will allow you to "Apply Restrictions for an Entire Cart, Specific Products, or Groups of Products" -- so you don't need to make the limit for the entire store, if you're also selling things that you don't want a limit for.
