    Product bundles

    The product bundle is a group of synced or manually added products, the exact weight unit of these products and the grind style should be assigned by the incoming order.  It’s a collection of sub-products that are sold in a bundle (e.g. a Xmas or Easter special, Filter coffee special, etc.), those could be different types of coffees, combination of espresso & filter coffees you offer as a “sample” to your B2C customers. 

    Note: If you integrate your Shopify or WooCommerce shop channel(s), you map your products during the setup procedure. Please refer to the WooCommerce or Shopify integration manuals for more information.

    Setting up Product bundle offers (shop integration)

    Creating a Product bundle within the shop

    Note: The ability to integrate a Shipsbeans/WooCommerce/Shopify shop channel is reserved to Roast eCommerce packages only. If you have any questions, please reach out to sales@cropster.com.

    In our examples, we set up a bundle called "Africa bundle". It consists of two packages of African coffees. 

    The set up for product bundles from a shop integration can be done from:

    Shipsbeans/WooCommerce

    1. Log into your Shipsbeans/WooCommerce online shop.
    2. Go to the Products section.
    3. Set up the bundle as a new product, and enter information of the components in the description field, as shown in the following example:
    4. Now, set a product variation and assign a grind style and weight unit to your product. Assign the weight unit of a single component of your bundle (i.e. 250g). 

      Note: To select variations for a product, you must first have created and configured a Product attribute(s), set the attribute(s) to the product, and enable the checkbox Used for variations.
    5. Click Save changes to make the variations effective, then Publish the product when ready.

    Hint: If your bundle consists of, e.g 2x250g packages, you need to assign 250g as a weight unit, NOT 500g.

    Shopify

    1. Log into your Shopify online shop.

    2. Set up the bundle as a new product, and enter information of the components in the description field, as shown in the following example:

    3. Now, set up a product variant and assign a weight unit to your product. Assign the weight unit of a single component of your bundle. 

    Hint: If your bundle consists of, e.g 2x200g packages, you need to assign 200g as a weight unit, NOT 400g.

    Converting a Product into a Product bundle

    1. From our online platform C-sar, go to Orders > Products > [Shop integration] > Products.
    2. Check the box next to the Product(s) you want to convert.
    3. Click on the Convert to product bundles button displayed on top.
    4. Click Product bundles tab, then click on Activate for the product bundle in question (i.e. Africa bundle), then select the Products in bundle.
