Quantity as a decimal?

Post by confused » Thu Aug 22, 2019 9:25 am

I have a products sold by the pound and want to enable users to enter quantity as any decimal value they want (2.65 or 3.43 or 2.17 or ... you name it).

Any suggestions?

I can't play with different "Units/options" (1/2, 3/4 etc).

Thank you.

Hi there,

That would require customization. I don't know the extent of how much. I tried editing an existing order and it wouldn't let me enter 1.5, so enforcing integers appears to be taking place all over. You could with a bit of javascript, make it appear it's in decimals 1.3, but send it in as 13 and price it accordingly. Put a note on the product page for this product explaining how it works?
Thanks for your support
