In the following post, we describe one significant frontend improvement provided by Mageworx. The company has recently introduced a new product that completely revamps the way quantity options are selected on the frontend. The Mageworx Product Units and Quantities extension enables Magento 2 store owners to customize quantity fields and measurement units for any product. Custom units and quantities improve customers’ shopping experience on your web store by optimized ordering process for multiple products.
The Mageworx quantities extension does not bring robust B2B features as we have introduced in our Improved Configurable Product module, but it is still constructive, and below we explain why.

The module also allows displaying custom units and quantity on your website pages, including wishlist, shopping cart, product page, catalog, orders, and invoices. As a result, customers not only get a more user-friendly and intuitive interface but also see other details of the items they are going to order. These improvements provide a positive influence on conversion, increasing your sales.

The Magento 2 product units and quantities extension allows applying new settings for all products simultaneously, as well as provides the ability to specify individual parameters for each item.

As for individual product settings, they are available under Products -> Inventory -> Catalog in the Product Units and Quantities tab. Select a product here and implement an individual Qty configuration. The Magento 2 Product Units and Quantities extension offers the same options as we have just described.
