Bundles are a great way to increase the basket size of your customers cart. There are 3 different types of bundles that you can create.


Bundle Type 1: One SKU with multiple quantities for example, a bottle of water with a quantity of 6

Bundle Type 2: Multiple SKUs with a single quantity of each for example, a blanket, a rug and a cushion

Bundle Type 3:  Multiple SKUs with single or multiple quantities for example, a blanket, a rug and 3 cushions


How to create a bundle


  • Go to Bundles - Create New Bundle in the left hand navigation.
  • Complete the form fields:


Field Name
Description
Bundle Name
The name of the bundle that is shown on the marketplace i.e the Product Title - this defaults to the name of the first product in the bundle if this is left blank.
Product name template

Leave this blank unless you want to optimise the product title with key words such as Brand.

Bundle Short Description
The Short description on the marketplace
Bundle Detailed Description
The Long description on the marketplace. You can use HTML here if you need to.
Bundle Image URL

Please provide the image in a URL format. If you do not add a URL we will use the image from the FIRST product added in the bundle.

Bundle weight

This is important if you have weight based shipping set up. Add a weight if you want weight based shipping to apply. Make sure the weight is in the same units as your other product weights.

Start Date
Leave blank if you want this bundle to start immediately, otherwise the bundle will start when the next scheduled feed to marketplace occurs.
End Date    
Leave blank if you want this bundle to continue indefinitely

Bulk Buy

 Check this if you want to offer bundle type 1 (as above) - one sku with multiple quantities.


 



Bundle Type 1: Single Product, Multiple Quantity (Bulk buy)

  1. Complete the fields in the table above and make sure you check 'Bulk Buy'
  2. Enter the Quantity of the product in the bundle and the SKU.
  3. Click Create Bundle



Bundle Type 2:  Multiple products, Single Quantity


  1. Complete the fields in the table above
  2. Enter the SKUs for each product in the bundle. These need to be added on each single line - no comas or semi colon's required.
  3. Click Create Bundle


Bundle Type 3: Multiple products, multiple quantity


  1. Complete the fields in the table above

Final Step:

  • Choose a category and then click upload to Marketplace to list the bundle immediately. 


Bundle Products as Orders


If you have a Bundle Type 1, you will see the order come through with 'Quantity' = to the number in the bundle. e.g for this order with 10 units in the bundle:


If you have a Bundle Type 2 or 3, you will see the order come through with the price for each pro-rated amongst the products and their initial sale price.
