You can force the user to select a certain number of product variant values when they select a product that has product variants.

For example, you may have a coffee that must be defined as small, medium, or large. The user should not be able to put through a coffee order without specifying the size.

To enforce the selection of product variant values, in the backend, go to Products > Product Variants > Edit (pencil button) and tick one or both:

  • Force Selection: This means that the user must select at least one product variant value before putting through the order

  • Minimum Selection: This means that the user must select whatever number of product variant values that you have defined before putting through the order (Online Ordering and Self-Ordering Kiosk only). For example, a pizza might need at least 2 toppings, where each topping is a product variant value. You can enforce a certain number of values to be selected, but you cannot pre-select particular values.
