How to limit order quantity/amount and offer tiered pricing with Order Limit and Quantity Break?

During B2B business, many store owners hope to sell their products in bulk, at an attractive price. Yet they cannot force customers to buy more than X quantity/amount with Shopify default setting. Thus, the B2B/Wholesale Solution app is created to help store owners run their wholesale store easily.

Two of the most outstanding features are Quantity Break and Order Limit, both of which aim to promote more sales per purchase.
