Hey All,

We're struggling to find a solution to a bundling problem for our built-to-order configurable greenhouse kits. We would like to present customers with bundles for the purpose of education/preconfiguration (not discounting). The idea is to show customers what makes sense to purchase together. Problem is we have to find a way to preselect the right variant each time a product is added to a bundle. Different bundles need different variants preselected. This is why the "sort order" method with a particular variant selected won't work because needs to be dynamic.

Without the ability to preconfigure a bundle with specific variants preselected we're stuck:
problem 1) the price we advertise for the bundle will not be the same as the price subtotal inside the bundle
problem 2) the customer has to select the right variants themselves to get the correct price and configuration

Bundle 1
- Product A
- Variant 1, (2), 3, 4, 5
- Product B
- Variant (1), 2, 3, 4, 5

Bundle 2
- Product A
- Variant 1, 2, 3, 4, (5)
- Product B
- Variant 1, 2, 3, (4), 5

Any tips welcome we're scratchin our heads.

We tried Advance Bundle Products

We're looking into:

https://apps.shopify.com/bundlebuilder
https://apps.shopify.com/product-bundler-by-sovi-apps
https://apps.shopify.com/trunk

Thinking there might be a solution here too dunno yet:

Even if we find a programmatic solution there's the challenge of getting that functionality customized into a viable bundle app.
