Example: Setting a Minimum Order for Trade Customers

As an example of how to set a custom option, we will set a minimum order total for Trade customers.
To do this we will setup a new config option called "min_order" and set it to the value we want Trade customers to exceed when they place an order, as follows:

This setup will force any customer that has a Company Class of "Trade" to exceed £1200 worth of items when they place an order.
This is one of the in-build config options, and will work out of the box, but others will likely need implementing within your website in order to take effect.
If you would like a new config option implementing, get in touch with the Khaos Control Web team.
