How does Bundable work?
Bundable allows you to create page on your Shopify Store where customers can add products to a bundle based on the ruleset you define within the application. The ruleset acts as a template which determines what products the customer is allowed to add, if any discounts are to be applied.
Bundable creates a product in your dashboard for each ruleset you define, and every time a customer creates a bundle, it will add a variant to the product with the custom pricing and information on what products were in that bundle. If the bundle is ordered, inventory is deducted for each SKU in the bundle.
Why did we choose this method?
There are many ways to do product bundling on Shopify, most of which involve creating a new product in your Shopify dashboard for every bundle created. We wanted to reduce back-end clutter as much as possible, which is why we chose to save each bundle as a variant instead. Once 100 variants have been reached (The limit on Shopify), a new product is created and variants are added onto it instead.
How do I get started?
Getting started is easy!
If you're a visual learner, here's a demo we recorded for another merchant partner:
1) Click "Create Bundle" in the Bundable Dashboard
2) Fill out all of the fields, this will determine the rules of your bundle (e.g. minimum and maximum number of products allowed, what products are allowed etc.)
3) Save your bundle, go to the homepage of the app, and grab the URL.
4a - Main Menu) Navigate to your shop's Navigation section (Online Store - Navigation) and click on a menu, then add or edit a menu item with your url.
4b - Collection Page/Featured Product) When you create a bundle, because it generates a unique bundle product - you can set this product as a Featured Product within your homepage, or have it appear within your Collections.
To add the bundle product to a Collection, go to Products > Collections and select the collection of your choice. Manually add the bundle product and save changes.
And thats it! Now your ready to start accepting orders for your custom bundle!
