General settings

Before starting with product setup, lets give a look at the plugin general settings that you find at YITH > Product Bundles > Settings. This is how it looks like:

General settings

Read more in the following posts for details on each option.

Report

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

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 Reports” option that you find in the plugin settings dashboard.

Plugin settings - Show bundled items in reports

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.

Product bundle - Cart page

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 Plugins -> Product Bundles -> Settings.

Bundled items hided

Bundle price in order details

You can choose how to show the price of bundled products in the order details page when the “per item pricing” option is enabled.

In the general settings go to Price of “per item pricing” bundles in orders and pick one of the following two options:

Price in bundles

  1. Price in bundle: show the price of the entire bundle and so show zero next to each of the bundled items.
    price in bundle
  2. Price in bundled items: show the price of each single product of the bundle and so show zero next to the bundle title.
    price in items

 

Price layout on Shop page

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. Well, you can.

Go to the plugins settings panel at YITH > Product Bundles > Settings and select the layout you prefer next to the option called Price of “per item pricing” bundles in Shop.

Choose any among the four available layouts:

  • Min – max: show the total price range this bundled product can cost
  • Min only: show only the starting price of the bundles
  • Min only higher than: show then minimum price with text that lets users understand it starts from a given price, ex. “From $100”
  • Regular and discounted: show both the regular price as strikethrough and the bundle discounted price

Bundled items prices in Cart and Checkout pages

If you have enabled per item pricing 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 options of the plugin settings.

The bundled items prices will show as below.

 

PhotoSwipe for bundled images

Photoswipe

If you enable the option PhotoSwipe for bundled images, your users will be able to open the image gallery of one of the bundled items and see the product image on full screen. Use the arrows on the sides to display the images of the other products included in the bundle.

Bundle price sync

This button lets you force the creation of bundle prices when the option “per item pricing” 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 “Bundle” type, and how to select the products that we want to associate to it.
By way of example we will create a “Tablet + Cover” bundle product that will include the following products: “Tablet Cover” and “Asux Transformer Pad”.

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

Product type "Bundle"

Add the products to the bundle in few simple moves. Click on the Add Products button and 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 product

Pick bundle items in popup

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”.

Set options for the each item of the bundle product

Let’s analyze the settings that you can configure for each product added to the bundle.

Bundle options

  • Hide Product: show/hide the product in the bundle. If activated, the product will be kept in the bundle, but it won’t be showed to users.
  • Hide thumbnail: show/hide the product image in the bundle.
  • Optional: activating this option, the product will be set as optional. This means that users will be free to purchase the complete bundle, or abstain from adding the optional products.
    By default, optional products are excluded, and users just have to click on Add to add the product to the bundle.
    Optional product
  • Min Quantity/Max quantity: these two options let you choose how many products of the same
    kind users can purchase with the bundle. If you set the same value, users won’t be able to decide
    a specific quantity, and they will have to purchase only the one you have set.

  • Discount %: the percentage of the discount applied to the product. If the product has already an applied discount, this will be ignored,
    and the discount percentage will be calculated on the complete price of the product.
  • Title: this option lets you choose a new title for the version of the product included in the bundle.
  • Description: this option lets you choose a new description for the version of the product included in the bundle.
