Minimum Order Amount

This is a Developer level doc. If you are unfamiliar with code/templates and resolving potential conflicts, select a WooExpert or Developer for assistance. We are unable to provide support for customizations under our  Support Policy.

Add code to your child theme’s functions.php file or via a plugin that allows custom functions to be added, such as the Code snippets plugin. Avoid adding custom code directly to your parent theme’s functions.php file as this will be wiped entirely when you update the theme.

/**
* Set a minimum order amount for checkout
*/
add_action( 'woocommerce_checkout_process', 'wc_minimum_order_amount' );
add_action( 'woocommerce_before_cart' , 'wc_minimum_order_amount' );
function wc_minimum_order_amount() {
// Set this variable to specify a minimum order value
$minimum = 50;
if ( WC()->cart->total < $minimum ) {
if( is_cart() ) {
wc_print_notice(
sprintf( 'Your current order total is %s — you must have an order with a minimum of %s to place your order ' ,
wc_price( WC()->cart->total ),
wc_price( $minimum )
), 'error'
);
} else {
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( WC()->cart->total ),
wc_price( $minimum )
), 'error'
);
}
}
}

The WC Minimum Order Amount plugin is based on this snippet, if you’d prefer to use a plugin.
