How to Add Min or Max Total Purchase Amount in Easy Digital Downloads

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to add minimum or maximum total purchase amount in Easy Digital Downloads (EDD)? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to add minimum or maximum total purchase amount in Easy Digital Downloads.

By default, the maximum purchase amount is set to 100 in EDD. Any purchase above the maximum threshold will return an error. You can change the amount and the error message per your preference.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

function pw_edd_limit_total_purchase( $valid_data, $post_data ) {
	if( edd_get_cart_total() > 100 ) {
		edd_set_error( 'too_much', 'You cannot purchase that much at one time.' );

add_action( 'edd_checkout_error_checks', 'pw_edd_limit_total_purchase' );

Instead of maximum amount, if you want to set a minimum total purchase amount, then replace the following line if( edd_get_cart_total() > 100 ) { with if( edd_get_cart_total() < 10 ) {.
