Configurable Bundle feature overview

Edit on GitHub

A configurable bundle is a product bundle for which a Storefront User selects products on the Storefront. For example, when buying a kitchen set, a customer selects pieces of furniture, like drawers, cupboards, or cabinets, from suggested options.

Configurable bundle template

Every configurable bundle is created per a template. A configurable bundle template is a model with configuration details for a bundle, like a number of slots or product lists assigned to a slot. There can be multiple templates in a shop, like a sport suit, a car, or a kitchen set.

A Back Office User creates the templates in the Back Office. See Сreating configurable bundle templates to learn how they do it.

Configurable Bundle Template in the Back Office

To create a configurable bundle on the Storefront, a Shop User selects a configurable bundle template.

Configurable Bundle Template in the Storefront

The example below illustrates how the configurable bundle data is saved to the database:

{
     "id_configurable_bundle_template": 2,
     "uuid": "c8291fd3-c6ca-5b8f-8ff5-eccd6cb787de",
     "name": "configurable_bundle_templates.my-bundle.name",
     "slots": [
        [
            "id_configurable_bundle_template_slot": 6,
            "uuid": 9626de80-6caa-57a9-a683-2846ec5b6914,
            "name": "configurable_bundle.template_slots.slot-6.name",
            "id_product_list": 13
        ],
        [
            "id_configurable_bundle_template_slot": 7,
            "uuid": 2a5e55b1-993a-5510-864c-a4a18558aa75,
            "name": "configurable_bundle.template_slots.slot-7.name",
            "id_product_list": 14
        ]
    ]
}

Configurable bundle slot

A configurable bundle slot is a placeholder in a configurable bundle template for which a customer selects a product.

For example, a Kitchen furniture set configurable bundle template can have the following slots:

  • Wall cabinet with two doors
  • Wall cabinet horizontal
  • High cabinet with shelves
  • Wall cabinet with drawers
  • Corner base cabinet
  • Plumbing base cabinet
  • Base cabinet
  • Drawer base cabinet

Kitchen Configurable Bundle

When a Back Office user creates a configurable bundle template, they create the slots, and a product list is automatically assigned to each of them. They can edit the product list in Catalog Management > Product Lists section or by editing the slot in the configurable bundle template.

Slots
  • A configurable bundle template can have an unlimited number of slots.

  • You can assign the same product list to multiple slots in a configurable bundle template only via data import.

To learn how a Back Office User edits product lists, see Managing product lists. To learn how a Back Office User creates slots, see Creating slots in configurable bundle templates.

When a Storefront user configures a bundle, for each slot, they select a product from the provided product list. Slot Base Cabinet

By default, it is not obligatory to select products for all the slots to order a configurable bundle.

Schematically, a configurable bundle looks as follows: Config Bundle Schema

When a Storefront User selects a product for a slot, the product is picked. For example, if they select Base cabinet with 2 shelves SKU12236 for the slot Base Cabinet, they see the following message: “You have picked Base cabinet with 2 shelves SKU 12236 product to fill the slot Base Cabinet.”.

Configurable bundle notes in cart

On the Сart page, items are grouped by configured bundles. Configured bundle on the Cart page

A Storefront User can add a note to a configurable bundle. The note is displayed with the bundle on the Checkout Summary and Order Details page.

Product bundle configurator

Product bundle configurator is a page where a Storefront User selects products for a configurable bundle.

Configurable bundle quantity, stock, and price

Currently, the feature supports 1:1 product-slot relation in the configurator. You can select only one concrete product with quantity 1 for a slot. However, using the data import, you may import a bigger quantity for the products in the slots.

On the Cart page, a Storefront User can change the qunatity of a configured bundle. After the quantity is increased, the quantity of all the items in the configured bundle is multiplied by this number.

For example, a Storefront User adds a configurable bundle with the following products:

  • Item A:
    • Item price: 40 EUR
    • Item total: 2
    • Price: 80 EUR
  • Item B:
    • Item price: 20 EUR
    • Item total: 1
    • Price: 20 EUR Total price is 100 EUR

If you change the quantity to 2, the following is changed:

  • Item A:
    • Item price: 40 EUR
    • Item total: 4
    • Price: 160 EUR
  • Item B:
    • Item price: 20 EUR
    • Item total: 2
    • Price: 40 EUR Total price is 200 EUR

If you change the quantity to 3, the following is changed:

  • Item A:
    • Item price: 40 EUR
    • Item total: 6
    • Price: 240 EUR
  • Item B:
    • Item price: 20 EUR
    • Item total: 3
    • Price: 60 EUR Total price is 300 EUR

The price of a Configurable Bundle is the sum of all the items selected for its slots. The price is calculated dynamically. If you re-select a product in a slot, the price is updated accordingly.

Configurabe bundle price is calculated by the following formula: Σ Configurable bundle = Σ product in slot 1 + Σ product in slot 2 + Σ product in slot n

Configurable bundle stock is updated in the same way as stock for the concrete products.

Product availability is taken into account when calculating the total.

Configurable bundle reorder

A Storefront User can reorder items from a configurable bundle as separate order items.

Configurable bundle and quotation process

A Storefront User can include a configurable bundle into the quotation process and change the price of one or more items in a bundle. The price of the configurable bundle is re-calculated based on the new prices.

Configurable bundle and splittable order items

A Storefront User can add splittable and non-splittable products to a configurable bundle.

If a configurable bundle contains splittable products and its quantity is above 1, the order is split into separate configured bundle items with its items also split. For example:

For example, a Storefront User places the order with the following item:

  • Configured Bundle A x2:
    • Product A x 6
    • Product B x 2

The order looks as follows:

  • Configured bundle A x 1
    • Product A x 1
    • Product A x 1
    • Product A x 1
    • Product A x 1
    • Product A x 1
    • Product A x 1
    • Product B x 1
    • Product B x 1
  • Configured bundle A x 1
    • Product A x 1
    • Product A x 1
    • Product A x 1
    • Product A x 1
    • Product A x 1
    • Product A x 1
    • Product B x 1
    • Product B x1

If a configurable bundle contains non-splittable products, and it its quantity is above 1, it is not split.

For example, a Storefront User places the order with the following item:

  • Configured bundle B x2:
    • Product A x 3 - non-splittable
    • Product B x 2 - splittable

The order looks as follows:

  • Configured bundle B x 1

    • Product A x 3
    • Product B x 1
    • Product B x1
  • Configured bundle B x 1

    • Product A x 3
    • Product B x 1
    • Product B x1
Packaging units are not supported

The product splitting logic does not support packaging units with configurable bundle products.

Configurable Bundle on the Storefront

The Configurable Bundle feature looks as follows on the Storefront: Configuring a bundle
