Is possible add a quantity box before the button “add to chart” ?
I think to something like this [wp_eStore:product_id:1 quantity:yes :end]
Tnx in avance

Hi Paolo, adding a quantity field befre the “Add to Cart” button wont’ be very hard. I will add this functionality to the pluginMarch 26, 2010 at 5:36 am #16253ShumakerBMember
Hello, I just purchased your WP Estore, Thank You.
Approx 4 months ago, you posted:
“Hi Paolo, adding a quantity field befre the “Add to Cart” button wont’ be very hard. I will add this functionality to the plugin”
However I cannot find how to use this function. Is this something that has been added? I do need this if possible. I have a charity site that will be using the WP Estore for donors to “pledge” to pay for supplies for an orphan hosting camp we are running. We have items like “crayons” and “notebooks” that most people will pledge to purchase multiples of. Thank you again.March 26, 2010 at 5:48 am #16254IvyMember
Hi, I just sent you an email regarding this issue. You can find this feature in the “Add/Edit” products menu under “Inventory Control (Click to Expand)”

Not sure if this is the place to ask, but I would like to hide the available quantity but maintain an available quantity for inventory control purposes. I have workshops people sign up for on my site, and if they see there are slots open, they tend to wait to register. On the other hand, I need to maintain an available qty so that I don’t overbook!
Thanks!June 10, 2010 at 1:16 am #16256
Is this for one of the fancy display options? If you can tell me which fancy display you are using then I should be able to tell you what to do.July 20, 2010 at 2:55 pm #16257
Firstly, great product. I love how much more flexible it is.
I too cannot find how to add a quantity field next to the “add to cart” button.
We are selling physical items, and usually they will buy more than 1 at a time. (imagine that i sell bricks)
I tried Paolo’s suggestion of [wp_eStore:product_id:1 quantity:yes :end], but that did nothing.
I have looked into the “Inventory Control” but there is nothing there that helps me with the correct shortcode to add a quantity form field.
Is there an update I am missing? Do I need to customize a file? I have no problem customizing a file by the way.

In addition to my last post.
I have tried editing the code for the regular button by adding a text field <input type=”text” value=”1″ name=”quantity”/>, but this does not work. Although it does add a text field to the form, it does not change the quantity added to the cart, and the extra input is treated like a variation.
So how can I have a “add to cart” button as well as “quantity” text field on a product page?
Any help appreciated, to me this seem like standard cart procedure for many types of products.July 21, 2010 at 1:19 am #16259wpCommerceModerator
what version of eStore are you using? If you can’t find the “Inventory Controle (Click to Expand” section Under “Add/Edti Products” menu you might need an update. Please see the following post on how to get update-

You don’t have to modify code to get this quantity field. When you configure the product you can check the “Display Quantity Field” checkbox for that product and it will show a quantity text box next to the “Add to Cart” button so your customers can specify the quantity amount. If you do not have this option in eStore then please request and eStore update (this feature was added recently).July 21, 2010 at 4:59 am #16261wpCommerceModerator

Thanks, I did not know about requesting updates. I was sent the update and now the quantity feature appears.March 11, 2016 at 5:57 pm #16263rockstaradvoMember
Hi, I recently set up my cart on my checkout page and started selling tickets to an event. The tickets are $37.
People are having issues purchasing because (even with and without setting the max quantity to 1 per customer, i tried both) when they enter in a 1 in the quantity field in the cart 2 things are happening:
1 – they can’t see the number they are typing
2 – when they hit “apply” the total amount goes CRAZY. I tried it myself, added a $37 product to the cart, entered 1 in qty and hit apply and the price went from $37 to $167. Nothing else was in my cart, it was not a previously abandoned cart.
This is happening for a lot of customers and they are assuming I’m trying to scam them somehow. Please help!March 11, 2016 at 6:13 pm #16264wzpModerator
Please provide a link, and instructions, on how to recreate the issue; and what specifically to look for.
Not being able to see the number wold be a CSS issue. Your theme is likely specifying a font color that is matching with the text field’s background color.
