MyCashflow's product bundles allow you to offer several products for sale as one combined package at a different price than the total of its individual products (for instance, a baseball bat, a ball, and a glove at the price of 60 €).

Product bundles can be managed in the product card's Product bundles tab. This is where you can create new product bundles and view all product bundles that the product belongs to.

Creating and editing product bundles

Product bundles can be created and edited in the product card's Product bundles tab. A product bundle can be edited in the product cards for all products it contains.

  1. Select a product that you'd like to add to the product bundle.
  2. In the product's card, go to the Product bundles tab.
  3. Products with variations: you can either make it possible for the customer to select the desired variation when purchasing the product bundle or select a specific variation for the product bundle.

    Only one variation can be selected for the main product. However, multiple variations can be selected for all other products included in the product bundle.

  4. Click Create new product bundle. Now you can define the new bundle's details.
  5. Enter a name for the product bundle.

    The name of the first product added to the bundle will automatically be used as the bundle's name. The name can be changed by clicking the name field in the bundle's details.

  6. An option is to add a separate image for the product bundle by clicking the image button next to the name field.

    By default, the product image for the first product added to the bundle will be used as the bundle image.

  7. Add products to the product bundle. The product bundle must contain at least two products before it can be published.
  8. Define the product bundle's price.
  9. To publish the product bundle, click Publish. As an option, define the publishing settings before publishing:

    You can set the product bundle to be displayed on product lists of the desired product categories.

    You can also feature the product bundle, which means that it will be displayed on the list of featured products.

    Note! Displaying product bundles in product categories and featured products is only possible if the {Bundles} tag has been used in the store's theme.

    After publishing, the bundle's products can no longer be edited

    After publishing the product bundle, you won't be able to add or remove products from it. If you need to make changes to bundle products after publishing the product bundle, delete the already-published bundle and create a new one.

    Only the bundle's name and price can still be edited after publishing.

After the product bundle has been published, your customers will be able to purchase it from your online store. Make sure you test that the product bundle looks and works the way you wanted.

Adding products to product bundles

Products can be added only to product bundles that haven't been published yet. If you need to add products to a product bundle that has already been published, delete the bundle and create a new one.

  1. Navigate to the product bundle you'd like to add products to. You'll find the bundle in the Product bundles tab of all products included in the bundle.
  2. Click Add products.

    You'll see a view with a search field and a list of products that have often been purchased together with the products included in the bundle.

  3. Select the desired products from the list. For each product, you can either select the allowed variations or let customers select the variation while purchasing the product bundle.
  4. After selecting the products, at the bottom of the list click Add product to product bundle.

    You'll be brought back to the product bundle's details.

  5. As an option, you can adjust the quantity of each product in the product bundle by clicking the relevant field in the Quantity column.

Removing products from product bundles

Products can be removed only from those product bundles that haven't yet been published. If you'd like to remove products from an already-published product bundle, delete the entire package and create a new one.

  1. Navigate to the product bundle whose products you'd like to remove. You'll find the bundle in the Product bundles tab of all products included in the bundle.
  2. Navigate to the product on the product bundle list and, at the end of the product's row, click .

    The product will immediately be removed from the product bundle (but not from your online store).

If you remove a product from a product bundle, the product bundle will no longer be displayed on that product's product card in the admin panel. In such a case, the product bundle will remain visible in the Product bundles tab of these bundle products that haven't been removed.

Setting prices for product bundles

By default, the product bundle's price is the total of all bundle products' prices. However, you can also set a different price for the bundle after you've added all the relevant products to the bundle.

Product bundles and discounts

When the customer purchases a product bundle in your online store, the price of the bundle products is based on the bundle's price. Potential campaign discounts don't apply to bundle products.

If the customer enters a discount coupon at the checkout, the products will be priced according to the greater discount: if the products' total price is smaller with the discount coupon, the price will be defined according to the discount coupon, and the product bundle price will be disabled.

Here's how to price a product bundle:

  1. Navigate to the product bundle whose price you'd like to set. You'll find the bundle in the Product bundles tab of all products included in the bundle.
  2. Click the product bundle's price at the bottom of the product list.
  3. You can either set a discount percentage or a fixed price in euros for the product bundle.

    If you opt for the discount percentage, the price will be calculated based on the total price of all bundle products.

  4. Click Save.

Product bundle availability

Product bundle availability depends upon the availability periods and stock settings for its products.

  • Limited availability: If the availability period for any of the bundle products hasn't yet begun, the product bundle will be visible in your online store, but customers won't be able to purchase it.
  • Stock balance: The stock balance of a product bundle is based on the stock balances of products included in the bundle. The stock balance is always the smallest possible number. For example:

    If the product bundle contains a baseball bat (6 in stock) and a helmet (5 in stock), the product bundle's stock balance will be 5 because there aren't enough helmets to form more bundles.

    If a bundle product's stock settings say that the product's sale should be discontinued as soon as it runs out of stock, the entire product bundle will become unavailable until the product is back in stock.

  • Delivery time: The temporary shipping time is set to the product bundle only in the following cases:
    • the temporary shipping time has been set to only one of the bundle products or
    • all bundle products have the same shipping time

Product bundles in the customer area

In the default theme, product bundles are listed on the pages of all products that belong to the product bundle. Each product bundle also has a separate page with links to all bundle products.

The product images for each product/variation are displayed on the product bundle page. If you'd like a particular variation image to be displayed on the product bundle's page, enter the variation's name as the caption of the product image. See detailed instructions.

In the case of products with variations, you can either include selected variations in the product bundle, or allow customers to select the desired variation while purchasing the bundle.

Your customers can only profit from the product bundle's discount price if they add the product bundle to the shopping cart. If they add all the bundle products to the shopping cart separately, the discount won't be applied.

Currently, product bundles do not support customizable products. So if one of the bundle products has customization options, your customers won't be able to use them when purchasing the product bundle.

Product bundles in orders

When the customer orders a product bundle, this will be displayed in the shopping cart and at the checkout as a single product row with the product bundle's selling price and the initial total price of all bundle products for the sake of comparison.

However, in the admin panel, on the order page as well as in order documents and email notifications, the product bundle's products will be displayed on separate rows.

Deleting product bundles

  1. Navigate to the product bundle you'd like to delete. You'll find the bundle in the Bundles tab for all products included in the bundle.
  2. Navigate to the product bundle on the list and, at the bottom of the product list, click .

    The product bundle has been deleted. All bundled products have been deleted from the product bundle, which means that they can no longer be purchased at the product bundle's discount price.

    Deleting a product bundle does not delete its products from the store.

Editing a product bundles' appearance

Product bundles are displayed by using the theme's product page template or a separate product bundle page template, depending on the theme settings. For detailed instructions on how to implement product bundles, see our designer's guide.
