CS-cart Limit Cart Quantity


CS-cart Limit cart Quantity 

The Limit Cart Quantity addon of CS-cart lets admin easily control how many products customers can buy. Using this tool, admin sets minimum and maximum conditions with different user groups. Customers must adhere to the established minimum and maximum quantity number set for a particular product. In a list of user groups with minimum and maximum quantity numbers, default minimum and maximum values will be automatically selected. If only one user group is active, it will follow the conditions set for that specific group. Customers receive real-time notifications if their selected quantity does not meet the conditions. This tool helps admin control purchases and create a more personalized shopping experience for customers.
