Here we will see how to set double Quantity of product in magento2. You can change product quantity when adding product to cart. You can achieve this by Observer.

First create events.xml file in folder ‘Webkul/Hello/etc/frontend’ and use event ‘checkout_cart_product_add_after’.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
    <event name="checkout_cart_product_add_after">
        <observer name="customprice" instance="VendorName\ModuleName\Observer\CustomQty" />

Now create CustomQty.php file in Observer folder.

    namespace VendorName\ModuleName\Observer;

    use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;
    use Magento\Framework\App\RequestInterface;

    class CustomQty implements ObserverInterface
        public function execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer) {
            $item = $observer->getEvent()->getData('quote_item');           
            $item = ( $item->getParentItem() ? $item->getParentItem() : $item );
            $qty= $item->getQty() * 2; //set your quantity here


For cart page or minicart you have to override Magento\Checkout\Controller\Cart\UpdateItemQty controller file through plugin or preference you can see this link how to override controller


in your overridden controller file replace updateItemQuantity function to

private function updateItemQuantity(Item $item, float $qty)
        if ($qty > 0) {
            $item->setQty($qty * 2);

            if ($item->getHasError()) {
                throw new LocalizedException(__($item->getMessage()));
  • It's working for me, but In cart page when i update the Quantity link 3 and update, it's accept my quantity 3. Can you give me the solution for that.

You can create observer to update quantity in cart items.

public function execute(Observer $observer)

    $cart = $observer->getData('cart');
    $quote = $cart->getData('quote');
    $items = $quote->getAllVisibleItems();

    foreach($items as $item)

Check this out for details.

Hope this works for you.
