WooCommerce Quantity Before Add to Cart and Product Update

Recently one of my customer ask me how to add a quantity field before add to cart button in product archive page or product list page. Woocommerce provide a simple code for quantity field but it doesn’t update the value of total cart so I have to find a solution for this after searching lots of websites then found a code on Git Hub and it’s work perfect for me.

Implementation of this code is very easy just follow these steps and quantity field will be displayed if you are facing any problem or have any query please let me know.
Basically what we are doing is that changing default add to cart button with our new code which already included a quantity field as a submit form so currently it not completely ajax.

global $product;

<?php if ( ! $product->is_in_stock() ) : ?>

 <a href="<?php echo apply_filters( 'out_of_stock_add_to_cart_url', get_permalink( $product->id ) ); ?>" class="button"><?php echo apply_filters( 'out_of_stock_add_to_cart_text', __( 'Read More', 'woocommerce' ) ); ?></a>

<?php else : ?>

 $link = array(
 'url' => '',
 'label' => '',
 'class' => ''

 switch ( $product->product_type ) {
 case "variable" :
 $link['url'] = apply_filters( 'variable_add_to_cart_url', get_permalink( $product->id ) );
 $link['label'] = apply_filters( 'variable_add_to_cart_text', __( 'Select options', 'woocommerce' ) );
 case "grouped" :
 $link['url'] = apply_filters( 'grouped_add_to_cart_url', get_permalink( $product->id ) );
 $link['label'] = apply_filters( 'grouped_add_to_cart_text', __( 'View options', 'woocommerce' ) );
 case "external" :
 $link['url'] = apply_filters( 'external_add_to_cart_url', get_permalink( $product->id ) );
 $link['label'] = apply_filters( 'external_add_to_cart_text', __( 'Read More', 'woocommerce' ) );
 default :
 if ( $product->is_purchasable() ) {
 $link['url'] = apply_filters( 'add_to_cart_url', esc_url( $product->add_to_cart_url() ) );
 $link['label'] = apply_filters( 'add_to_cart_text', __( 'Add to cart', 'woocommerce' ) );
 $link['class'] = apply_filters( 'add_to_cart_class', 'add_to_cart_button' );
 } else {
 $link['url'] = apply_filters( 'not_purchasable_url', get_permalink( $product->id ) );
 $link['label'] = apply_filters( 'not_purchasable_text', __( 'Read More', 'woocommerce' ) );

 // If there is a simple product.
 if ( $product->product_type == 'simple' ) {
 <form action="<?php echo esc_url( $product->add_to_cart_url() ); ?>" class="cart" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
 // Displays the quantity box.

 // Display the submit button.
 echo sprintf( '<button type="submit" data-product_id="%s" data-product_sku="%s" data-quantity="1" class="%s button product_type_simple">%s</button>', esc_attr( $product->id ), esc_attr( $product->get_sku() ), esc_attr( $link['class'] ), esc_html( $link['label'] ) );
 } else {
 echo apply_filters( 'woocommerce_loop_add_to_cart_link', sprintf('<a href="%s" rel="nofollow" data-product_id="%s" data-product_sku="%s" class="%s button product_type_%s">%s</a>', esc_url( $link['url'] ), esc_attr( $product->id ), esc_attr( $product->get_sku() ), esc_attr( $link['class'] ), esc_attr( $product->product_type ), esc_html( $link['label'] ) ), $product, $link );


<?php endif; ?>

After putting above code unit to add a simple function into your theme functions.php file so it can show only where it need to be shown.

function insertcart_wc_loop_add_to_cart_scripts() {
 if ( is_shop() || is_product_category() || is_product_tag() || is_product() ) : ?>

 jQuery( document ).ready( function( $ ) {
 $( document ).on( 'change', '.quantity .qty', function() {
 $( this ).parent( '.quantity' ).next( '.add_to_cart_button' ).attr( 'data-quantity', $( this ).val() );

 <?php endif;

add_action( 'wp_footer', 'insertcart_wc_loop_add_to_cart_scripts' );

After adding days codes save your file.
please note you must take backup before doing changes into your theme so if accidentally something goes wrong you have backup
