This article will fully explain what minimum orders in your onine store are and how they work
The minimum order order in Prestashop stores is a very important function, as when purchases are done at BigBuy, they are done using a minimum amount.
It’s also very important to know that in a Prestashop store the minimum amount is without VAT. However, when it comes to making the final purchase of products in the shopping cart, the VAT will be included. For that reason, if the minimum amount is the same as it appears in the cart, it doesn’t mean it has already been reached, as the amounts shown in the shopping carts do include VAT and not the minimum amount.
Changing the minimum order amount
To change the minimum order amount, we’ll first need to access our store’s control panel. Once there, access “Preferences” (1) > “Orders” > “Order settings” (2).
Then go to “Minimum purchase total required in order to validate the order” (3). From this section we’ll be able to change the amount. Lastly, save the changes.
Following these simple steps you can set up the minimum order in your online store, keeping in mind that the VAT amount won’t be included.
