How to Validate Product Quantity in Cart

What you would like to achieve is that product quantity in the shopping cart shouldn’t be more than fixed value. For example, it shouldn’t be more than 500.

If you have advanced skills in web programming, especially with ecommerce platforms, it shouldn’t be hard to implement quantity validation by doing it in several ways. One way of doing this can be found below.

var qty_fields = $$(".qty");
var max_qty = 500;
var error = '';
for (var i = 0; i < qty_fields.length; i++) {

error = "Maximum allowed quantity is "+max_qty+".";
qty_fields[i].value = max_qty;
if (error.length) {

If the quantity is more than 500, it shows the message that maximum allowed quantity is 500. That’s the basic example how this method can be applied or Magento shopping cart and it should be working pretty easy.
