Selling Bundles

Postby Mike Bouldin » Tue Jan 15, 2002 5:40 pm

Is there a way to sell multiple products as a bundle so when customer hits
"add to cart" button three different SKUs will be added to cart.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Dan:
we create a new SKU for this (e.g. pack of 10 greetings cards) - it is better
because usually the price will be different for a "Set" products and I'm not
sure if the customers wants to suddenly see multiple products in the basket
after he/she only pressed the add to cart button once. You want the customer
to be in control of the shopping cart.

We've just added a new feature to the Stone Edge Order Manager for ShopSite
that helps support this. We call it "kits". You create a kit by taking one
SKU (the Kit) and assigning other SKUs to it (the Parts). Each Part also
includes the quantity of that part that goes into each kit.

When you import or manually enter an order for a kit, the Order Manager
creates one line item for the kit, including its price, and assumes that it
is in stock. It then creates additional line items for each Part, checking
the quantity on hand for each and backordering anything that is out of
stock. The program gets the weight and cost of the kit from its parts. The
customer, on their invoice, sees the kit at its defined price, then each of
the parts at a price of $0.00.

This feature hasn't made it to our website yet, so if you need more info,
give us a call.

So it is over 6 years later....


I'm wondering if there further developments in the Kits/Bundles implementation in Shopsite?

We have many Kits that have a set number of quantities of components and a set bundle price, none of which should be edited by the customer. Is there any way to achieve this through Subproducts or any other means?

No, nothing has been implemented in ShopSite that would handle a kit made up of multiple items.

Have you tried using the multi-add to cart functionality described in the help at http://www.shopsite.com/help/10.1/en-US ... i-add.html

You could set it up so the quantity for each product is set and when they add the item all items would be added to the cart.

you can see a sample of a page using this functionality at http://www.beeutahful.com/store/arachne2003_sale.html

In that example you have to check the box as to which products you want to add but you could do that with hidden form elements that specify that it is included and what the quantity of each would be.
