How to show your product form

There are two different ways to add the form to your website’s pages.

Insert form through shortcode

Go on the form edit page, copy the shortcode that you find on the right side and paste it onto the page where you want to add the form.

Show form using shortcode

Insert form using a PHP function

As an alternative to the shortcode, you can edit your theme templates. To do this, you can use the PHP code that you find on the form page.

WooCommerce Cart widget

If you add the widget “WooCommerce Cart” into your sidebar, users will be able to see their cart contents update in real time.

Every time users add a new product, the cart updates via AJAX instead of making the page refresh.

WooCommerce Cart Widget

In order to show the widget only on the pages where there is also a product form, enable the option “Show only in form” that you find in the widget.

Elementor

This plugin fully supports Elementor page builder, so you can show your quick order forms everywhere you like.

To add one your quick order forms, just drag and drop the YITH Quick Order Forms widget from Elementor’s menu, add a custom text and the quick order form ID.

YITH Minimum Maximum Quantity

YITH WooCommerce Minimum Maximum Quantity lets you set purchase limits on the product quantity. You can apply the quantity restrictions directly on the product or on the cart content.

The only thing you will have to do is activate both plugins and apply your quantity rules.

In the example above, we have set a minimum quantity of 5 for Meat bals and a maximum quantity of 10 for Tacos. As you can see the quantity rules are applied to the quick order form.

For more information on how to set up these quantity rules, check the complete YITH WooCommerce Minimum Maximum Quantity documentation here.

YITH WooCommerce Request a Quote

Using both premium versions of the plugins, the quick order form will show an option to add the product to the quote request.

When the Request a Quote plugin is activated, you will find a new checkbox in the “form edit” page. If this option is checked, the button ‘add to quote’ will appear inside the quick order form.
