Setting up order limits and cart limits in Shopify

DC Order Limits allows merchants to enforce various types of limitations on customer purchases, including restrictions based on quantity, price, product eligibility, and customer eligibility. These limits help manage inventory, promote fair purchasing practices, and encourage order values that align with business goals.

Getting Started

To begin using DC Order Limits, navigate to the DC Order Limits section within your store's administration dashboard. Here, you can create new rules, edit existing ones, or delete them as your business needs evolve.
