Adding a bundle product

  1. Combo products are also called bundle products.
  2. It is offering several products as one combined product.
    For example, a product “Computer Set” can have: 1 PC Monitor + 1 PC CPU + 1 Pc Keyboard + 1 PC mouse
    So when someone buys a Computer set she gets all the products in it.
  3. The stock of bundled products depends on the stock of individual products present in that bundle.
    For example: if you have 5 PC Monitors, 4 PC CPUs, 10 pc Keyboard, and 50 PC mice, the stock of the Computer set will be 4 PC.
  4. When the bundle product is sold, stock of all products inside them is automatically deducted.
  5. Individual products present in bundle products can also be sold separately.
  6. Bundle products cannot be purchased, only individual products present in it can be purchased.

Adding Products with multiple variations: #

If you have products that involve multiple variations for example a Shirt can have Color & Size variations, then we have multiple ways to work with it:

Solution 1, Create combined variation: Can a variation with the name “Color-Size” and add values like Red-Small, Red-Medium, Red-Large, etc, this can be used while adding the Shirt.

Solution 2, Create multiple Products: Create multiple different products like Shirt-Red, Shirt-Green, and Shirt-Blue with size variations. When you create multiple products you will NOT have to enter the same details multiple times, first, add the Shirt-Red with all size variations of it and then use the Duplicate Product action to copy the data.

How can we use the brand’s barcode of the product instead of creating and printing new for every product?

Answer:

When creating a product, in the SKU field enter the barcode number of the product. This barcode will be used to identify the product on all screens like POS, Sales, purchases, reports, and others.
