How do I change the available numbers inside my quantity dropdown menu? (Blueprint)

These instructions apply to free Blueprint themes that have not been customized. The BigCommerce Support Team may not be able to assist with issues that occur after applying them to a previously customized theme. As always, we recommend backing up your current theme customizations before making any changes.

The quantity drop down menu on your product page is controlled by the CartItemQtySelect.html snippet. You can edit this file to customize the numbers that show inside the quantity dropdown box.

Any changes you make to this snippet will affect all products.

1. In the BigCommerce control panel, go to Storefront DesignDesign Options, then click on Edit HTML/CSS.

In some versions of the control panel, this is located under Setup & ToolsSet up your storeDesign.

The Edit HTML/CSS button.

2. In the list of Other Template Files on the left, locate CartItemQtySelect.html.

Other Template Files links.

Use Ctrl F or Command F to quickly locate template files in the list.

3. In the code to the right, you will see several lines using the following format:

<option %%GLOBAL_Quantity#%% value="#">#</option>

Code example.

Each line contains the following values:

  • %%Global_Quantity#%% - controls the order of the quantity drop-down options in the menu (we recommend not changing it)
  • value="#" - determine the quantity added to the cart when that option is selected
  • # - the number or phrase actually displayed in the menu

4. Change the following three values to your preferred value/display combination.

Example:

<option %%GLOBAL_Quantity500%% value="500">500</option>, your customers could choose the option of adding 500 items to their cart, and the cart would add 500 items if that option were selected.

Although these values should match, they do not have to. For example you could change the display to read "Set of 500", and it would add 500 of that item to the cart.
