I’m using Magento 1.8 and I am amazed that I cannot get the system to allow orders of 0.1 quantity. I’m building this store to sell fabrics, per 10 cm’s. So that would be 0.1 meters and I do not want the quantity to represent centimeters to avoid long numbers and customers ordering something in 251 cm’s.
I’ve tried the
qty_increment field in the Admin > System > Configuration > Inventory but it only accepts full integers.
What I’ve tried so far:
http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/228756/ <- same bug in Magento 1.5 but produces big fat PHP error in 1.8.
think about making all the fabrics a configurable product, but this would mean creating a selection pull down list from 0.1 to 25.0 or so in steps of 0.1 ... very ugly IMHO.
Anybody know how to solve this or is Magento simply not meant for this?
