GEM – Plus/minus quantity buttons ↑ Back to top

The default field for product quantity is only a number field, but it is not always enough for the visitor. This feature will put plus and minus buttons before and after the number field, so your visitors can easily modify the quantity of the ordered products. The buttons will be displayed on the Product page and on the Cart page also.

IMPORTANT! The display of the buttons depends on the theme and plugins, that you use on your website. In most cases it can be fixed with a little CSS. We are making this plugin compatible with the most popular themes and it has a basic styling to fit for most themes, but it can not fit for all themes. Please let me know if your theme is not compatible, but I can not promise if or when do I fix it for that particular theme.
