Some products are only profitable when they’re ordered in certain quantities. Perhaps the shipping expense is too high if you sell only one at a time. So you need to set a minimum order quantity.
There’s no built-in way to do this in Shopify. But there are Shopify apps that can help you achieve this feature including Order Limits, OrderLogic, and Limit Qty Purchase.
