- The minimum order amount rule will be checked against the cart subtotal amount.
- If the carts subtotal amount is less than the minimum order amount configured and the user clicks the "Proceed to Checkout" button the cart will display the message "Minimum Order Amount Not Met" and will not allow the user to move past the cart page and checkout until the minimum order amount is met.
- The "Minimum Order Amount Not Met" message is configurable in the cart resx file to any message you like.
