Tag orders based on the quantity of products of a certain product type in the order

This criteria allows you to highlight orders that contain multiple quantities of products of a particular product type.

In Shopify, product types can help you to manage your products. For example, you can use the product type as a condition for an automated collection or help you filter your products via the Shopify admin area. A product can have only one product type.

When this criteria is run against an order, the quantity of all matching line items will be added together and then tested against the quantity value/condition that you specify to see if the criteria have been matched.
