Wix Stores: Adding and Setting Up the Wix Checkout Requirements App

6 min read
With the Checkout Requirements app, you can take control over what requirements need to be fulfilled before a customer can complete checkout. You can use the app to create 3 different types of requirements:
  • Add a minimum quantity of products requirement: Prevent customers from purchasing too few of a specific item (e.g. minimum purchase is 3 vanilla candles).
  • Add a maximum quantity of products requirement: Prevent customers from purchasing too many of a specific item (e.g. Purchase of vases is limited to one per order).
  • Add a minimum order subtotal requirement: Orders must reach a minimum of $100.
Check out some examples of how the checkout requirement can be used in the FAQs below.
After creating one or more checkout requirements, you can easily activate or deactivate them with a click.

Step 1 | Add the Checkout Requirements app

To get started, go to the Wix App Market and add the Checkout Requirements app.
Wix Editor
Editor X
Studio Editor
  1. Go to your editor.
  2. Click Add Apps  on the left side of the editor.
  3. Search for the Wix Checkout Requirements app in the search bar.
  4. Click Add to Site.
  5. Click Go to Dashboard

Step 2 | Create a checkout requirement

Now that you've added the app, go to your site's dashboard and create your first requirement.

You can create a single requirement or multiple ones. For example, you can create a requirement that ensures that customers must buy at least 2 candles and another requirement limiting the purchase of candles to 10 per order.

To create a checkout requirement:

  1. Go to Checkout Requirements in your site's dashboard.
  2. Click Add Requirement.
  3. Enter a requirement name (e.g. 2-candle minimum).
    Note: Customers won't see this name.
  4. Select the type of requirement you want to create:
    • Minimum quantity of products
    • Maximum quantity of products
    • Minimum order subtotal
  5. Enter the required quantity/subtotal.
  6. If you selected, minimum or maximum quantity of products, select what the requirement applies to:
    • Specific products: Only specific product(s) count towards the minimum or maximum (e.g. if you set a 2-product minimum, customers must buy 2 of each of the specific products you select).
    • All products: The requirement applies separately to each product (e.g. if you set a 2-product minimum, customers must buy 2 of each product they buy, not 2 products from your shop).
  7. If you selected Specific products in step 6, select those products.
    Tip: Start typing the product name and select it from the list.
  8. Choose what happens if customers don't meet the requirement:
    • Yes, enable checkout but show a warning message: Customers see your message explaining the requirement, but can still complete a purchase.
    • No, disable checkout and show error message: Customers see your message explaining why they can't complete the purchase and cannot complete a purchase.
  9. Enter the message text you want your customers to see.
    Tip: Make sure the message is clear and specific so that customers know what to do (see FAQ below).
