Setting Order Amount Restriction
You can set order amount restriction by specifying the minimum and maximum order amount in the Min subtotal ($) and Max subtotal ($) columns respectively. If you leave the “Min subtotal ($)” column blank, there will not be any minimum restriction and the starting order amount will be $0. If you leave the “Max subtotal ($)” column blank, there will not be any maximum restriction.
The below screenshot shows the maximum order amount set for the Administrator user role at $300, Editors at $50 to $500, Authors $10 – $300, and a $50 limit for Contributors.
Specifying Warning Messages

Enabling/Disabling the rules
You can enter the order amount restrictions and warning messages and choose to save the settings. To apply the settings, you can enable the corresponding setting of the respective user role.
Save the settings, once you have configured them.

hello, the minimum currently applies to total not subtotal…how can I fix this?
yes, you can set order amount restriction by specifying the minimum and maximum order amount in the Min subtotal ($) and Max subtotal ($) columns and the same will be applied to the subtotal. This is not working as expected please contact our support team at https://support.elextensions.com/
Please ignore my earlier question – Sorry I did not set the $6994 limit for Admin user!
Urgent!!! I have just done some extensive troubleshooting and found that:
Once any type of user reaches the 6994 limit, that ALL other Enabled User Roles will have their checkout page lock up, and they see;
“There are some issues with the items in your cart. Please go back to the cart page and resolve these issues before checking out.” But the Red “Return to Cart” button no longer works (it should return them back to a fresh Checkout page).
The only way it can be be accessed (by enabled users) is after I uncheck ALL enabled users and save changes!
Rendering your plugin useless.
Currently I have left just Unregistered User & Customer enabled for you to test it.
As the above lockup also occurs when I Enable Administrator!
My second question is: where / how do I set the HTML as I need to show a link for the customer to request a special quote for 1,000 or more Licenses?
Also I see that this free plugin expires in 12 months and only has 10 downloads – is that correct?
As I read through your first question, I understand that if any user role reaches the maximum amount set, the checkout page is getting stuck preventing the user to proceed further. Could you please do a quick plugin compatibility check by enabling only the ELEX Minimum order plugin and the WooCommerce?
To set the messages in the HTML format, there is an option in the plugin settings page. The text-field is HTML supported, hence you can make use of HTML elements in your messages.
There is no expiry for this basic version of the plugin. You have a lifetime usage.
