Andre Sancken,

Magento have an attribute which is set maximum no of product qty for cart.If set it to 1 then any customer cannot qty 1 of products

Maximum Quantity Allowed in Shopping Cart - with this option you can control the maximum number of items that customers can add to the shopping cart. By default, it's set to 10000. Note that this will affect not the whole cart but each line in the cart. This means that a customer can order the maximum allowed quantity from a certain product, and they can then put units from another product in the same cart/order, so that the actual total items of both products exceeds the allowed quantity. As with the previous two settings this one will affect not only those products that you add after you make a change to this setting but the change will also affect existing products. If you want to, you can set a different value for this setting per product from the settings of each particular product.

How to managed:

It managed globally ,goto Magento and go to System menu>Configuration>Inventory button in the Catalog section on the left > then goto it Product Stock Option> find Maximum Qty Allowed in Shopping Cart: make it 1 That makes customer cannot cart more then one qty .This effecting on all the products

[EDIT:Product wise] Also ,you can do it product wish goto admin>Catalog>Managed Product>Select a Product Then go to it inventory tab here you find same field which managed this product wise max qty cart

Thx but this is not what i need. With this, it also possible to put the product another time to the cart. I want the following: Every User can put every product from my Shop but only qty1 every product 1 time. With your explanations i can put only one product to the cart

  • This makes my eyes bleed.

Each of it. When you add the product, it should not be possible to add it another time and also only 1 qty per product.
