Compile pack of products with desired minimal quantity in PrestaShop

Dear Milosz, I would like to ask information about Min Product Quantity. There is a beer factory which produces beers in bottles of two different sizes which cannot be packed together. Is it possible to let the customer compile packs of different flavoured beers of the smaller size but in the given quantity of 6, 12 or 24; and beers of the larger size in the given quantity of 3, 6, 9? It should be necessary because of the box sizes the factory uses for delivery. Thank you in advance. Best regards, 

module allows to to set minimal quantities of products only. It does not allow to set minimal quantity of products in a kind of "products packs".
Let's say that we've got product "beer bottle 330ml - mango flavour". You set minimal quantity of this item to 6 and enabled option to accept only multiplied quantities (6,12,18,24...).
This means that customer will have to purchase at least 6qty of "beer bottle 330ml - mango flavour" product, and cart will accept only quantities like 6,12,18,24,30,... and so on.

if you want to allow to purchase pack of different products like:
- 3x "beer bottle 330ml - mango flavour"
- 1x "beer bottle 330ml - apple falvour"
- 2x "beer bottle 330ml - pineapple falvour"
(sum: 6 quantity)

it will not work. becuase module sets minimal quantities of exact items only.

So in context of settings we set (6 qty, accepted mulitplied quantity) you will need to pruchase 6qty of "beer bottle 330ml - mango flavour".

But i think that you can achieve what you expect with different module. This one:

If you will categorize your products by size of bottle (these categories can be hidden, you can just create them for module workflow purposes only). For example:
  1. Category: beer 330ml, with products:
    • beer bottle 330ml - mango flavour
    • beer bottle 330ml - apple falvour
    • beer bottle 330ml - pineapple falvour
  2. Category: beer 500ml, with products:
    • beer bottle 500ml - mango flavour
    • beer bottle 500ml - apple falvour
    • beer bottle 500ml - pineapple falvou
Then you will be able to create conditions like:
  1. [group of customers]  must order at least defined quantity of products from category: Category: beer 330ml, quantity: 6 (and accept only multiplied quantity: 6,12,18,24... )
  2. [group of customers]  must order at least defined quantity of products from category: Category: beer 5000ml, quantity: 3 (and accept only multiplied quantity 3,6,9,12,15... )

it will be do the job, customer will be able to compile pack of various flavours and module will check if cart contain desired number of products associated with categories you used in conditions. And if so - allow to place an order. And if not - block purchase process.

if there is anything else that i can explain according to this module feel free to write

best regards.
