The Minimum Order field allows you to assign a minimum dollar value for your online orders. Customers will not be about to purchase your products until they have selected items whose sum is at least this amount, not including shipping.
Why use the Minimum Order setting?
- The customer will purchase enough product to balance the ideal cost of the product, and the cost to ship it (the cost of shipping should be no more than 20% of the cost of the product).
- You are ensuring that each order will be significant enough to be worth your time to fill it.
