Selling in Lot Sizes - The Coffee Store

Here is an example of how to sell in lot sizes without the customer being able to mess up the quantity with the increase/decrease button:

Americart Example (Select Quantity only from your page)

This example lets you sell in lots of five, six, whatever, without the customer being able to mess things up by hitting the "increase/decrease quantity" button in the cart display. They are instead presented with a button they can click which will remove that item from the cart and take them back to your page where they can re-select a new lot size.

[Use of the =CA= tag for quantity adjustment control.]
[Use of the "parturl" tag for linkback to the item from the cart display.]
