Grouped, bundled, packaged, paired. Quite a few names are assigned to the idea of wrapping several products together in one sale. The purpose is often to provide a slight discount, while convincing the customer to spend more money on one visit. In this guide, we’ll discuss how to make WooCommerce bundle products with built-in WooCommerce features.
Several methods are available for bundling products, so the tips and steps will attempt to cover the most effective. Furthermore, we’ll look into free and premium plugins and extensions that add advanced product bundling features.
How to create WooCommerce bundle products with the built-in feature
For this tutorial, we’ll assume two things:
- You have a working WooCommerce store already – if you haven’t set up your store yet, read our guide on launching a WooCommerce store.
- You’ve already added the individual products that you want to include in your bundles – if you haven’t added those, you can follow our tutorial on adding products.
Once you’ve done that, here’s how to create your bundled products:
1. Create a new product
To make WooCommerce bundle products, start by going to the WordPress dashboard and clicking on Products > Add New.
You’ll make a new product, outside of the current items already in your store. Keep in mind, however, that a bundled product requires other products to be linked to it. So, you must already have some items in the store that you want to “bundle together”.
Make a name and description for the bundle. The title should have a relevant name and include some sort of wording like “bundle” or “value pack.”
In the description, outline the purpose of bundling those products together and explain each item with a little detail. It’s also not a bad idea to explain if any discounts are included if they decide to purchase the entire bundle over the individual products.
2. Edit product data
Scroll down to the Product data box. Select the Grouped product option in the dropdown.
