In this guide we will have a look at bundling and product kits creation for Shopify. Let’s dive in.
How to add multiple products to the cart on one product page
In certain circumstances, depending on the product you’re selling, you might want to give your customers an option to add a related product to the cart from the same page. In essence, this means adding multiple products to the cart all on the same product page.
For instance, if you sell digital cameras, they’ll be of no use without their chargers. So, you might want to offer your customers the option to buy the charger and camera from the same product page.
Is that possible in Shopify? Can you add two checkboxes to the same product page and give the customers the choice to buy the single product or purchase it along with the other related item?
Creating product kits for your Shopify store
Product kits or product bundles are a great way to increase average order value. Whilst inventory can be problematic when dealing with multiple kits, a better way is to use an app that simply “collates” products. This means the inveroty will live with the parent sku and you can bundle the items directly on the product page. If a single product goes out of stock, it will dynamically drop it from the kit.
Add multiple products to the cart on one product page
Currently, Shopify does not let you do this. Instead, you can download an app such as Crate Bundles to do this.
It lets you bundle items on the Product page so that your customers can choose the items they want to buy together. You can also promote bundle offers for a discounted price, boosting sales.
The best way to use this app is just how Amazon shows you ‘frequently bought together’ products. In doing so, you can offer the second product for a discounted price, persuading the customers to buy both items together.
You can also customize how the bundle or kit looks and feels.
The Bundle widget is displayed at the bottom of the page by default, showing your customers they can buy complementary products together and save some money.
Other useful features of Crate Bundles:
- Create useful product bundles
- Create great discounted product bundles
- Create multiple bundles per product
- Enable and allow smart product recommendations
- Create custom product recommendations for your customers
- Easily style Crate Bundles to match your Shopify theme
Alternatively, you can get in touch with a Shopify expert and request them to code this feature for you in your store.
