How to Remove the Quantity Field from WooCommerce Products

WooCommerce includes a quantity input field on products by default. This input shows up on both the individual product page as well as the cart review screen. This simple feature, especially on the cart view, seems like a wonderful addition to make the user experience better but sometimes it has unintended consequences.

If you never want your customers to be able to order more than one of any given product for sale on your site you are going to want to disable the quantity field from your WooCommerce theme.

There are several ways to do this and they range from tedious to quick and easy.

How to Disable the Quantity Field on a Single Product

There’s an option inside of WooCommerce’s product management interface to mark an item as only eligibigle for individual sale. You can find this by opening up your product inside of the WooCommerce admin and scrolling down to the “Product Data” section of the interface.

Under “Product Data” you will see a series of tabs on the left-hand side. The option you are looking for is available under the “Inventory” tab. At the bottom of that tab is a checkbox called “Sold Individually” that will disable the quantity field for this particular product (and only this product).

Checking that box and saving your product will remove the quantity field from the product’s page and it’s row in the cart view when a customer is going to checkout. When a product is marked as “Sold Individually” it also has the added bonus of preventing customers from adding more than one item to your cart by disabling the “Add to Cart” process if one of the item has already been added.
