Hi Experts,

I'm after some assistance with setting a minimum purchase quantity in Virtuemart.

Although this can be easily set with individual products, I want the minimum quantity to consist of various products within a certain category i.e. minimum quantity of 6 can consist of 2 x product A, 2 x product B, 1 x product C, 1 x product D.

In addition, I want other products without a minimum purchase quantity to remain available to customers at the same time.

Can this be achieved in Virtuemart? If so, please point me in the right direction.

    probably yes.

    The problem is not the coding but the hacks you may have to do in order to do it.

    And hack means very difficult updates !!
