Mix and Match Use Case: Wine Box

Scenario ↑ Back to top

You recently started selling wine online. Instead of selling your cheaper range per bottle, you prefer to sell them per crate.

However, you want to give people the option to choose 12 bottles to create a crate from the range of white, rosé and/or red.

Here’s how to do this with WooCommerce.
