Web Design in 2013: What I’ve Learned for the Upcoming Year

Like many employees around the world, last week I took a vacation. I was out of the office from December 24 to January 1.

It was the first time since 2005 that I’ve had a true Christmas vacation – with no work, and no school. Folks, that’s nearly a decade. And I am truly too young for that.

Minimum Quantity Ordering with Set Increments

Depending what business you’re in, you may require minimum and/or maximum quantities on the products people purchase from you. Let’s say you sell business cards and require a minimum bulk purchase of 100 cards. While most people will understand that this means they can’t order 50 cards, they believe that they can still order 150 cards, or while it sounds nonsensical, even 105 cards. However, a minimum requirement may mean that you only sell your cards in increments of 100 (100 cards, 200, 300, and so on).

So that customer who wants to order 150 business cards would have to order 200 to satisfy your minimum requirement. The shopping cart of any major ecommerce platform would simply send a message saying that their quantity did not meet the requirements and the customer would have to go back and fix their order. This could become a deterrent that stops them from completing their order, which means you’ve lost a sale and have an abandoned cart to handle.
