Composite Products can be used to create product kits and complex products by grouping existing simple or variable products.
Overview ↑ Back to top
The Composite product type has been designed with a strong focus on kitting applications. The extension:
- Allows you to create product kits that consist of multiple configurable components.
- Makes it possible to introduce dependencies between component options.
- Gives you the ability to create multiple configuration paths by conditionally hiding entire components.
- Allows you to apply discounts to specific components.
- Supports configurable component quantities.
- Offers multiple options for customizing the configuration flow, layout and appearance of your composite products.
- Handles complex pricing and shipping requirements with ease.
This makes Composite Products a great alternative to the Variable product type for creating configurable products and complex product kits in applications with complex pricing, shipping and inventory management requirements.
Additionally, the Composite type is designed with scalability in mind. For an optimal customer experience in a wide range of kitting applications, the appearance of Composite products in the front-end is highly customizable. For large-scale kitting applications, the extension supports a step-by-step configuration process and a paginated, sortable and filterable view of component options, which can be enabled and fine-tuned for specific components with a large number of options.
