How to create bundles.

The article explains the process of creating and setting up bundles in the context of an e-commerce platform, using Shopify as an example

  1. Bundle vs. Component:

    • A bundle refers to a collection of items sold together as a single marketplace item.
    • Components are the individual items within the bundle, each with its unique identifiers.
  2. Shopify Test Store Example:

    • Demonstrates a single candy bar sold individually and a six-pack of the same candy bar.
    • The six-pack has its own unique UPC different from the single pack.
  3. Creating a Bundle:

    • To create a bundle, one establishes a relationship at the parent level.
    • In this case, constructing a bundle where the single candy bar is a marketplace item sold individually, and the six-pack is sold as a bundle.
  4. Bundle Flag in Catalog:

    • After creating the bundle, a "bundle flag" appears in the catalog, indicating its status.
  5. Prediction and Purchase Orders:

    • Predictions for purchase orders take into account the velocities of both the single candy bar and the six-pack.
    • The system suggests replenishing purchase orders with the single candy bar, considering the sales velocities.
  6. Managing Inventory:

    • The video suggests reshuffling inventory at the warehouse to recreate six packs from individual items before sending them to FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon).
    • Highlighting the uniqueness of SKUs and UPCs for individual items and bundles.

The process ensures accurate predictions and streamlined inventory management for both individual items and bundled products within the e-commerce platform.
