I have a stationery website, and want to develop a pricing system that has different discounted bundles available for purchase. However, to keep track of inventory, I need the bundles to take inventory from the individual products, and not appear as having their own inventory. I've tried at least 6 bundling apps, but they are all positioning the bundles as additional sales tactics to drive purchases. I need them to be positioned as products themselves.
To further explain this, I'm trying to sell air fresheners that can be purchased individually or in pre-determined sets that we've created. I want to display the sets alongside the individual products on the collection pages. However, when you just create them as their own product, they also get their own inventory. When someone wants to purchase a preset bundle, I need Shopify to take that inventory from the individual air freshener products.
Hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance for your help!
App Selly can display some products together, so that they are still individual products however customers can add all to cart with ONE click:
Please take a look at Products Assistant. Using the bundles part of the App you can associate the bundled products with the component products using variant options, sku's or by explicitly linking. From there on it will increment/decrement the inventory automatically when orders are created/cancelled.
Did you find a good solution to your problem? I have the same need, and would love to hear if you found a good way to keep inventory tracking correct, whether you sold a single product or a bundle of them.
If your bundles are static (i.e: not created by your customer on the fly) then an inventory management app such as Stock&Buy can be of good help. The majority of our customers use Stock&Buy to track their products and bundles along with their inventory levels.
When you create a bundle in Stock&Buy, we sync it to Shopify as a product. However, selling either the bundle or one of its parts separately will automatically trigger inventory recalculations on our end which will keep both the bundle and the parts stock levels up to date (more details about this here)
Would you be interested in a demo?
Does the app work well with Quickbooks online. Right now the app we have that integrates QBO and Shopify uses the quantities in QBO to sync and the bundles are not able to sync because of shopify's inablities.
Thank you for any help!
With the PickyStory app, items out of stock are not allowed to be included in the purchase.
You can set up product kits representing any combination of variants and quantities, each one offered as a separately-priced tier. Shoppers can modify product quantities, select different variants, and so on. The discount values are also configurable for each tier. Last but not least, line item quantity is reported correctly for each product, so your inventory levels on Shopify are always up to date.
Some of the popular use cases include fashion/shop-the-look combos, wine gifts (typically trios), and home design collections.
Writing in to see if you found a solution to your problem. Duoplane might be able to help - we can create Bundles in Duoplane, then sync inventory to Shopify for each of the bundle components. You can learn more about how bundles work and install Duoplane through the app store at the links below:
