  • Which version of Magento 2 you are using? – Keyur Shah Apr 15 at 12:38
  • Keyur Shah Magento version is 2.2.6 – Robinio Tor Apr 15 at 12:39

Yes, there is an event(checkout_cart_product_add_before) before adding the product into the cart but from the Magento 2.3.X please check this link for Magento 2.3.x

But you are using Magento 2.2.6 version and in this version, this event does not exist so I would suggest you use a plugin feature of Magento.

So in your case, you want to restrict adding the product into the cart with your magic condition so go with before plugin on addProduct(..) method.

Please define plugin in your di.xml

 <type name="Magento\Checkout\Model\Cart">
        <plugin name="prevent_add_to" type="Example\Sample\Plugin\PreventAddToCart"/>

Now define your plugin class


namespace Example\Sample\Plugin;

use Magento\Checkout\Model\Cart;

class PreventAddToCart

    public function beforeAddProduct(Cart $subject, $productInfo, $requestInfo = null)
        if (!something) {
            throw new \Magento\Framework\Exception\LocalizedException(__("ha ha"));
        return [$productInfo,$requestInfo];

Here if (!something) { replace with your magic condition(price is less than 60)

maybe you have a question to get the product price so you can easily get it from $productInfo because is product object.

Note: I am assuming that you already know how to create a module in Magento 2


Try using this event controller_action_predispatch_checkout_cart_add. Hope it will be helpful for you.
