Composite Products

Composite Products can be used to create product kit builders by grouping existing simple or variable products.

Overview ↑ Back to top

Composite Products is an advanced product kitting plugin that lets you use existing products to create customizable product kit builders. The extension has been engineered specifically for applications with advanced inventory management requirements, and is ideal for selling products that consist of multiple inventory-managed parts.

Before you get started with Composite Products, make sure you’ve picked the right tool for the task at hand. If you need to create a configurable product that consists of multiple inventory-managed options, like this DSLR Camera Kit, you’ve picked the right tool. If the options of your product do not need to be inventory-managed, or tracked in reports individually, then consider using an attribute-based, or form-based plugin, like Product Add-Ons, or Gravity Forms Product Product Add-Ons.

If the product kit that you want to build does not consist of configurable components, then consider using Product Bundles.
Important: Composite Products requires WooCommerce 3.1.0+.
