Set minimum purchase amounts for wholesale orders

You can require that your customers spend at minimum a set amount each time that they make a wholesale order. You can set this minimum order amount for your wholesale store and for individual wholesale customers. The minimum order amount set for a customer takes precedence over the minimum order amount set for the store.

For example, you set $150 as the minimum order amount for your wholesale store. Then, you set the minimum order amount to $200 for customer Joe. All customers except for Joe create orders that meet or exceed $150. Joe creates orders that meet or exceed $200.
