Can I add decimal quantity increments?

WooCommerce itself is built around the idea that customers will only ever order quantities in whole numbers. As a result, we have built WooCommerce Quantity Manager to only support whole numbers for quantity increments and step values.

For simple WooCommerce stores, it may be possible to get decimal quantities working correctly. However, this can cause problems when you connect your store with third party systems such as payment gateways and shipping providers, which may not support decimal quantity values.

Depending on the amount of demand, in future we might investigate whether it is realistic to add support for decimal quantities and whether this will work with different third party systems. Please send us a feature request if you would be interested in this. Include the following information:

  • Details of your use case and how you would use the decimal quantities (e.g. you might be selling meat and want customers to be able to buy in increments of 100 grams).
  • Which payment providers you use (e.g. PayPal, Stripe or Worldpay).
  • Whether your store has any other third party integrations (e.g. with a shipping company or accounting system).
