Bundle allows merchants using the Shopify Checkout Integration and Recharge Checkout on Shopify to use one SKU to bundle multiple products to create a “build-your-own-box” experience. Merchants can customize the subscription settings to offer bundles as one-time products and/or subscriptions, and include add-ons or extras. Merchants can create boxes with fixed items, or provide customers with the ability to customize their boxes.
Bundle use cases
Bundle is compatible with Shopify stores only, for merchants that want to offer either a customizable “build-your-own-box” experience or a fixed bundle with pre-selected items. Merchants also have the ability to offer add-ons or extras to the first delivery only, or for all subsequent deliveries.
Example use cases:
- A meal plan box where a subscriber can select the meals they will receive each week while paying the same static price.
- A wine company with a wine club that offers a bundle of three, six, or nine wine bottles, providing a discount for purchasing several bottles at one time. This could be a fixed bundle, with pre-selected wines, or the merchant can give the customer the option to customize the bundle by selecting their preferred wine.
How Bundle works
When purchased, only the Bundle product will appear in the cart. The selections in the Bundle are not shown at cart level as individual products.
Once the order is processed, the order will display the selected items in the Bundle as $0.00 items in the order breakdown on Shopify alongside the Bundle product with the charge for the Bundle.
If you are using an Order Management System (OMS) they must ensure this setup is compatible. If the OMS pulls the order information immediately when the order is placed, it is best practice to adjust the sync configuration by a few minutes to update after a few minutes so that the Bundle breakdown can be updated.
Bundle does have a few limitations to consider:
- Fixed-price - All bundles must have a fixed number of products and the price must be set up front. Bundles can also have multiple variants (box sizes) and specific box sizes and prices can be defined.
- Fulfillment - Bundle orders are edited after they are placed using Shopify official APIs which are not compatible with some Order Management Systems and fulfillment processes.
