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:
Learn more about the available options in the following posts.
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.
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.
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:
From the tab Customization, you can manage the price style and the labels for your bundles.
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.
Choose any among the four available layouts:
Through these options, you can configure:
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.
The bundled items prices will show as below.
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.
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.
You can either search the product on the product name or SKU, by using SKU:
Add the products you need by clicking on the Add button next to each of them.
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”.
Let’s analyze the settings that you can configure for each product added to the bundle.
In Bundle options, you can manage the bundle price as follows:
By selecting Set a fixed price for this bundle, you can enter the regular price and, optionally, the discounted price.
Through the option Show saving amount, available only if you set a fixed price for the bundle, you will have the possibility to show on the product page how much money users can save when purchasing the bundle product.
Use prices of bundled items
By selecting Use prices of bundled items, the price of the bundle will be calculated based on the prices of the added products and subordinated to the quantity of each of them.
If you want to apply the shipping fees separately for each product of the bundle, select the option Items will be shipped individually. In this case, every product will have its own shipping fee set from the related WooCommerce detail page.
On the contrary, if you want to apply just one shipping fee, select the option Items will be bundled in a unique shipment.
You can set the minimum and/or maximum quantity of items that must be included in each bundle in order to add it to the cart by enabling the option Limit product selection for this bundle.
When enabled, you can specify the minimum and the maximum number of items that can be selected by users in the entries available in Total items in bundle.
Through the option Different types of items in bundle, you can specify the minimum and the maximum number of different items that can be selected by users.
The user will be notified by an error message on the product page in case the bundle can’t be added to the cart.
