Setting a Minimum Order Amount in Woocommerce

by | Aug 24, 2023 | Business

If you want to set a minimum order amount in Woocommerce, there is a simple fix that can be added to functions.php in your website theme.
function w321_set_minimum_order_amount() {
    // Set the minimum order amount
    $minimum = 30;

    // Get the Cart's total
    $cart_total = WC()->cart->total;

    // If the Cart's total is less than the minimum amount, display an error
    if ($cart_total < $minimum) {
        wc_add_notice(
            sprintf('Your current order total is %s — you must have an order with a minimum of %s to place your order.', 
                wc_price($cart_total), 
                wc_price($minimum)
            ), 
            'error'
        );
    }
}
add_action('woocommerce_check_cart_items', 'w321_set_minimum_order_amount');

Here’s a step-by-step guide to implement this:

  1. Backup your WordPress site: Always take a backup before making any changes. This way, you can easily revert back if something goes wrong.
  2. Add the code: You can add the above PHP code in one of the following places:
    • Child Theme’s functions.php file: If you are using a child theme, you can add the code to your child theme’s functions.php file. This ensures that your changes aren’t overwritten when the parent theme updates.
    • Custom Plugin: If you prefer to keep your customizations separate from your theme, you can create a simple custom plugin and add the code there.
  3. Test: After adding the code, try adding items to your cart and checking out with less than $30 to see if the error message appears.
  4. Adjust the minimum value: If in the future you want to change the minimum order amount, just adjust the $minimum value in the code.

Remember that while this method sets a minimum transaction amount, there may be additional configurations or plugins on your WooCommerce site that could conflict with this. Always test thoroughly after making changes.
