I keep getting the following message.

"Sorry! The minimum order amount is not reached."

What is this mysterious minimum order?

I'm not trying to get free shipping, its just that the cart won't let me proceed with checkout at all.

Looks like it's somewhere between $5 and $10. I updated a cart to 2 copies and it let me move forward- even though I didn't find anything written up about a min order...

I think I figured it out. Apparently there is a minimum order of any two items. (Even this game twice is sufficient.)
.. or there is indeed a $5 minimum order as the user above suggests. Either way, pick something else to add.

FYI: Shipping ran around an average of $11-$12 for a two item order for me.

Hello,

We have a $5.00 minimum order threshold. Meaning, you must have at least $5.00 in your shopping cart in order to place the order.

Thanks

Pardon my bluntness.

But that just sucks!

Why not just make the discounted price as $5.00 instead of $4.99. It's not like you have a lot of items that are below $5...

... and forcing the buyer to spend another $4.99 just to get past that 1 cent threshold is rather ... well ... weird!

Weird or the whole point?

I'd rather think that they chose $4.99 without intending to make the buyer spend more. The do have games that are $5+change, so it's not like they are trying to prevent sales that are just at the $5 mark.

We'd be happy if you bought something else, while visiting us, but the 5.00 was set in 2007, way before we had the opportunity to get Sector 41s for so cheap. We price almost everything with the .99 cents except for a few products, so this is just kind of an error that slipped past. I'll make sure it's changed to 4.99 instead of 5.00 threshold, simply because I think it's silly, and wouldn't like it as a customer. However, I will say, that as a business owner, there's not much profit to be made by selling a 5 dollar product only, and go through the trouble of shipping it out. So, again, I invite you to explore the site, and perhaps you'll add to your cart and the issues above won't be issues at all...

And also... Sector 41 for 4.99!!!!! Enjoy!

Thanks a ton, Chris. It's what I was hoping for.
