General settings

Before starting to configure product bundles, let’s take a look at the plugin general settings that you find in YITH > Product Bundles > General settings. This is how it looks like:

General settings

 

Learn more about the available options in the following posts.

Report

As for any other product available in the shop, the sales related to the product “Bundle” are registered within WooCommerce reports.

By default, only the product bundles are displayed in the report, whereas the products associated to the bundle are left out.
This behavior can be changed by enabling the “Show bundled items in WooCommerce Reports” option that you find in the plugin settings dashboard.

Show bundle items in report

 

Now, also the products included in the bundle are shown in the report, in the amount of zero, as you can see in the image below.

How to hide bundled items

By default, the product bundle and the products included will be shown in “Cart” and “Checkout” pages.

However, if you don’t want to show the products included in the bundle, you can enable the specific option that you find in YITH -> Product Bundles -> General settings.

Bundle price in order details

You can choose how to show the price of bundled products in the order details page when the “Use prices of bundled items” option is enabled.

In the general settings, go to In the order, show and pick one of the following two options:

Prices in order details

  1. Price of bundle: shows the price of the entire bundle and so shows zero next to each of the bundled items.

Order details

  1. Price of bundled items: show the price of every single product of the bundle and so show zero next to the bundle title.

Layout

From the tab Customization, you can manage the price style and the labels for your bundles.

Prices

You can choose how to display the bundle price on the Shop page. As the product might have a minimum and maximum price based on the selected options, you might want to show only the starting price or the range.

You can select the layout you prefer next to the option called Bundle price style in Shop.

Bundle price style

Choose any among the four available layouts:

  • Min – max: show the total price range this bundled product can cost

Min max price

  • Min only: show only the starting price of the bundles

Min only

  • Min only higher than: show then minimum price with text that lets users understand it starts from a given price, ex. “From $100”

Min only higher than

  • Regular and discounted: show both the regular price as strikethrough and the bundle discounted price.

Regular and discounted

Labels

LabelsThrough these options, you can configure:

  • Bundles’ title: this allows showing an optional title in the bundles before the list of bundled items;
  • Add to cart label: this allows inserting a text for the add to cart button;
  • “Add item to bundle” label: this allows entering a text for the checkbox to add optional items to the bundle;
  • “Add item to bundle for …” label: this allows entering a text for the checkbox to add optional items to bundle with the item price.

Bundled items prices in Cart and Checkout pages

If you have enabled Use prices of bundled items to show prices in the bundle and you also want to show prices of the included items both in Cart and Checkout pages, you must enable the option Show bundled item prices in Cart and Checkout available in the General settings of the plugin.

Bundled items prices in cart and checkout

The bundled items prices will show as below.

Bundle price sync

Prices sync

This button lets you force the creation of bundle prices when the option “Use prices of bundled items” is enabled; use it ONLY if you are encountering issues with sorting prices in the shop (as for when the bundle products have been added with an older version of the plugin).

Select products to insert in the bundle

In this page, we will analyze how to create a new product of the “Bundle” type, and how to select the products that we want to assign to it.
By way of example, we will create a “T-shirt” bundle product that will include the following products: Blue Man T-shirt, Wave T-shirt and Fade Tee.

Firstly, create a new product on “WooCommerce” and select the Product Bundle type in the product detail page.

Product bundle type

Add the products to the bundle in a few simple moves. Go to Bundle options and click on Add product to the bundle button. A popup window will open. You’ll be able to search a product using the search field on top and to add all the products you need by clicking on Add next to each of them.

Add products to the bundle

You can either search the product on the product name or SKU, by using SKU:

Search by SKU

Add the products you need by clicking on the Add button next to each of them.

Add items

The products you want to add can be both simple and variable ones.

For variable products, choose whether to offer all the variations or only some. In the latter case, select the variations that can be included in the bundle under in “Filter Product Variations”.
