New feature: Sell products with partial quantities (e.g., 1.5 pounds of candy)

25 Oct 1 by Mike Morrison

In the next release of Soholaunch Ultra, you will be able to allow certain shopping cart products (that you specify) to be purchased in fractional/decimal quantities.

For example...

  1. 5 1/4 lbs. of candy
  2. 3.5m of wrapping paper
  3. 0.25 ounces of gold

Previously, the above quantities would round to their nearest whole number.

How to enable fractional quantities for your products...

Edit one of your products, and take a look at the Advanced Options tab...


See that "Minimum quantity" field? If you put a value in that field that's less than "1" (e.g., .1, .5, .25) then this product will allow fractional quantity purchases.

You can also customize (or disable) the message that displays on fraction-friendly products, like so...

Shopping Cart > Display Settings


Here's what it looks like on your website...


The new Fractional Quantity feature will be available in Soholaunch Ultra v1.44+, which should be available in the first week of November.

Let us know what you think of the new feature! We hope that this will be a handy addition if you run a website for a craft store, candy shop, bakery, etc.
