Work with a product bundle

Abstract

How to create a product bundle, add sellable items, and make a bundle purchasable.

A bundle represents sellable items grouped to form a distinct product. You manage a bundle in the same way as a non-bundled sellable item. The sellable items within a bundle can be both tangible and non-tangible items (for example, a camera and a warranty); however, a product bundle can only be delivered to a physical address. Digital delivery is not currently available.

Note

For static bundles, you assign the price at the bundle level. You can assign a fixed price or a price card to a static bundle. For dynamic bundles, you can use manual or automatic pricing. You assign a bundle price in the same way as for a non-bundled sellable item

You can create a bundle in a catalog, category, or subcategory. 

Note

If you disassociate a bundle from its parent container, and it is not associated with any other, it still exists and can be found by using Search on the Merchandising dashboard.

To create a bundle:

  1. On the Sitecore Launchpad, in the Commerce section, click Business Tools and then click Merchandising.

  2. On the Merchandising dashboard, click the relevant catalog.

    Note

    You can create a sellable item directly within the catalog you select or you can create it within a category or a subcategory.  To create a bundle in a category or subcategory, in the Categories section of the catalog, click the category where you want to add the bundle.

  3. In the Sellable Items section, in the drop-down menu, click Add bundle.

  4. In the Add Bundle dialog box, in the Bundle Type drop-down list, click the type of bundle required. For example, to create a static bundle, click Static

  5. To save your selection, click the check mark.

  6. In the Add Bundle dialog box, enter a product ID, name, and display name. The other information is optional.

    Note

    A product bundle must contain at least one item.  You cannot publish an empty bundle (a bundle without associated sellable items) to a storefront. In addition, although you can create a dynamic bundle that contains only optional items, the shopper will not be able to add the bundle to the cart unless one item is included in the bundle.

A bundle must have at least one sellable item associated with it.

To add an item to a bundle:

  1. On the Merchandising dashboard, click the relevant catalog, category, or subcategory and then, in the Sellable item section, click the relevant bundle.

  2. In the Sellable Items section, click the bundle name to open the bundle details page.

  3. On the bundle details page, in the Sellable Items section, click Associate.

  4. In the Associate Sellable Item dialog box, in the Sellable Item field, enter the product ID, the name, or the display name of the item you want to add and then select it.

    Note

    You can only associate sellable items from the same catalog as the product bundle.

  5. For a static bundle, in the Quantity field, specify the number of items required in the bundle.

  6. For a dynamic bundle, specify the default quantity for this item and the maximum allowable quantity for this item.

  7. If you are creating a dynamic bundle, select:

    • Upgradable - to allow the shopper to upgrade the sellable item to another item.

    • Optional - to allow the shopper to remove the sellable item from the bundle.

  8. Click the check mark.

Repeat this procedure for each item that you want to add to the bundle.  

When you delete a sellable item that is associated with a static bundle, the bundle can no longer be  purchased. In the bundle details page, a blue banner located at the top of the page displays: The sellable item is not purchasable.

You might want to make the bundle available again for purchase without the deleted item.

To make the bundle available again:

  1. In the Merchandising dashboard, click the relevant catalog, category, or subcategory and then, in the Sellable item section, click the relevant bundle. 

  2. In the bundle details page, in the Details section, in the drop-down list, click Make purchasable.

  3. In the Make purchasable dialog box, click the check mark to save your change.
