We've got something exciting to serve up today. The Barn2 team has been cooking up a treat and it's finally ready to hit your table: WooCommerce quantity plus minus buttons for our renowned Restaurant Ordering plugin.
The WooCommerce Restaurant Ordering plugin displays food items in a quick one-page order form. It's perfect for restaurants and takeouts wanting a quick way for hungry customers to order food online, either for pickup or home delivery.
Until now, customers could click a button to add items to their cart and click it again to increase the quantity one by one. However, today we have added new WooCommerce plus minus quantity buttons to the plugin. Fresh out of the oven, this will make food ordering easier than ever.
An appetizing upgrade: Why do WooCommerce quantity plus minus buttons taste so good?
Let's dive into the details of this flavorful new addition to our restaurant plugin. The new WooCommerce quantity plus minus buttons add a dash of simplicity and a pinch of convenience to the online ordering process.
You'll now see enticing plus and minus arrows right there in the food order form. Adding an extra portion or reducing the number of servings is now as easy as clicking the WooCommerce plus or minus buttons. This gives customers full control over order quantities without clicking multiple times or navigating to the cart page.
WooCommerce quantity plus minus buttons not only speed up the ordering process but also offer a more user-friendly and engaging customer experience.
It works like this:
- Each product has a plus button next to it.
- When hungry customers click on the plus button, it adds a quantity of '1' to the cart.
- The button then changes to show a trash icon on the left, the quantity of '1' in the middle, and the plus button on the right. That way, customers can either remove the item or increase the quantity.
- When they increase the quantity, the button changes again to show a minus button on the left, the current quantity in the middle, and a plus button on the right.
Note: Variable products (or products with extra options such as burger toppings) will only have a plus button. That's because when they click on the plus button, a lightbox opens so that they can select the variations or options. The lightbox contains its own WooCommerce plus and minus buttons for adjusting the quantity.
Introducing plus and minus buttons for adjusting quantities in your WooCommerce store can offer several benefits to both a restaurant and its customers. For example:
- User-friendly interface: The design is intuitive. It makes ordering easy for customers.
