Product Bundles – Min/Max Items ↑ Back to top

Download this mini-extension.

Out of the box, Product Bundles do not include any options for limiting the total quantity of all bundled products. However, pick-and-mix functionality can be added to Product Bundles with the free Product Bundles – Min/Max Items mini-extension.

The mini-extension adds two new options under the Bundled Products tab: Items required (≥) and Items allowed (≤). These options allow you to define a lower/upper boundary for the combined quantity of all bundled items. For details, check out the Sell in Bulk example, which utilizes the Min/Max Items mini-extension.

Alternatively, you can create quantity-constrained assortments of grouped products using the WooCommerce Mix and Match extension.

Product Bundles – Bulk Discounts ↑ Back to top

Download this mini-extension.

Add bulk discount rules to Product Bundles. Combines the best of rule-based pricing and product bundling to help you drive more revenue. Compared to rule-based discounts and coupons, bundles are:

  • Highly visible. Each Product Bundle is an individual WooCommerce product with its own catalog page, which can be shared or embedded using shortcodes.
  • Trackable. You can use WooCommerce product sales/earnings reports to find out how your bundles are performing.
  • Intuitive. Cart discounts and coupons work very well if your offers are easy to follow. However, bundles are more effective at communicating bulk discount offers, which are often limited to specific products.
  • Easier to set up. Rule-based discount plugins are harder to set up and require a higher up-front investment.

To add bulk discounts to a Product Bundle, first ensure that Product Bundles – Bulk Discounts is installed and activated. Then, navigate to Product Data > Bundled Products and use the Bulk discounts field to define multiple discount amounts, depending on the total quantity of chosen items. Each discount rule consists of two parts, separated by a pipe | character:

  1. A quantity value or range of values, e.g. 1 - 5 ,
  2. A discount value expressed in %, e.g. 10 .

Quantities can be entered in either:

  • quantity range format – e.g. 1 - 5 ,
  • single quantity format – e.g. 6 , or
  • “equal to or higher” format e.g. 7 + .

For example, consider this ruleset:

4 - 5 | 5
6 - 9 | 10
10 + | 15

This means that:

  • If 4-5 items are chosen, the applicable discount is 5%.
  • If 6-9 items are chosen, the discount is bumped to 10%.
  • If 10 or more items are chosen, the discount goes up to 15%.

When a Product Bundle with bulk discounts is configured, the applicable discount is dynamically calculated and displayed, along with the subtotal and total after discount:

Product Bundles – Bundle Sells ↑ Back to top

Download this mini-extension.

You have probably seen this before: A bundle-sell is an offer to purchase a helpful add-on, along with the currently viewed product. Compared to cross-sells, bundle-sells:

  • are easier to discover; and
  • convert immediately.

This makes them ideal for recommending highly related optional items that are lower in cost compared to the currently viewed product — and usually high in margin.

The Product Bundles – Bundle-Sells mini-extension is optimized for WooCommerce. In most small- to medium-size WooCommerce stores, bundle-style recommendations convert better on average when offered above the add-to-cart button. Here’s why:

  • Bundle-sells are easier to discover this way, because they are tightly integrated with the main product.
  • Adding new page elements and sections to display bundle-sells makes them easier to miss or ignore. Clutter is not a WooCommerce feature.

Bundle-Sells also work well in applications beyond cross-selling — if you ever needed to customize a product by adding some inventory-managed options, you will find that Bundle-Sells can greatly simplify this process for you!

As its name suggests, the mini-extension introduces an extra recommendation type — Bundle-sells. After installing and activating it:

  • Go to the Products admin page.
  • Edit a product that you consider a good candidate for offering bundle-sells.
  • Go to Product Data > Linked Products.

There, you will find a new Bundle-sells field, right under Up-sells and Cross-sells.

  • Search for an optional product to recommend and add it.
  • Repeat, if needed.
  • Enter a Bundle-sells title below, e.g. “Frequently Bought With…”.
  • Remember to Update the product to save your changes.

Important: Compared to other types of recommendations, bundle-sells are more likely to end up having a negative impact on conversion. Use them sparingly and wisely. As a rule of thumb, bundle-sells ought to be relevanthelpful and lower in cost than the viewed product. If in doubt, ensure that your choices are backed up by strong, data-driven evidence.

WooCommerce – Stacked Product Layout ↑ Back to top

Download this mini-extension.

By default, most WooCommerce themes place single-product summaries right next to the main product image / thumbnails section, which is ideal for displaying product descriptions, prices and meta. Add-to-cart form content is normally displayed inside the single-product summary, too, which works well when displaying Simple or Variable product forms.

However, this layout is not always suitable for complex product types, such as Product Bundles, which usually add more content above the add-to-cart button. Some themes allow you to modify the layout of individual product pages to allocate more viewport width to bundles. For example, if you are using Storefront, the Storefront Powerpack plugin is a valuable addition that includes options for:

  • allocating more width to product form content, or
  • stacking bundled product details below the main product image and gallery.

If you are having issues with very narrow or squeezed product add-to-cart forms and your theme does not include any helpful layout options, you can use the WooCommerce Stacked Product Layout plugin to move the add-to-cart form under the product image and summary section, leaving the full page width available for the form content of your Bundles.

The plugin adds a Force Stacked Layout option under the WooCommerce Settings > Products > Display section, where you can select which product types should utilize the full-width, stacked layout.
