Direct MOQ or MOV: You control the minimums you ship

On the Settings page in your Dashboard you can set an MOV Minimum Order Value - for your brand. This ensures that retailers can pick and choose across multiple product lines to meet your dollar-valueminimum for Pod Direct.On the Settings page in your Dashboard you are able to set an MOQ Minimum Order Quantity – the MOQ that is set on the individual Product page applies to minimum case quantities per product. Forinstance, if it only makes sense for you to ship in quantities of four cases, you may elect to set the MOQ along with, for example, a $1 MOV.
