Bundles for Shopify Fulfillment Network

A bundle is a product that combines a number of other products. When a bundle is sold, all of the items that are in it are fulfilled together. For example, a bundle can be a suit that includes trousers and a jacket. Products in a bundle can also be sold separately.

If you want Shopify Fulfillment Network (SFN) to fulfill your bundles, and your products meet all the requirements, then you can set up a bundle in your SFN app.

Products that are included in a bundle are stored separately in SFN can also be sold as individual items. After SFN receives an order that contains a bundle, SFN picks and packs items that belong to the bundle and fulfills them together.

The stock-keeping unit (SKU) for a bundle is called the bundle SKU, while each product within the bundle has a component SKU.

Requirements for setting up a bundle for SFN

Before you can set up bundles in SFN, your products need to meet the following requirements:

You can add the products for your bundle through your Shopify admin without having to use an inbound transfer.

To ship internationally, your bundle SKUs and component SKUs must have a price that's greater than 0 USD.

Set up a bundle in your SFN app

If your products meet the requirements for bundles, then you can set up a bundle in your SFN app.

Steps:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Apps, and then click Shopify Fulfillment Network.
  2. Click the Inventory tab.

  3. Click the product that you want to set up as a bundle.

  4. From the product page, click the More actions menu, and then click Create bundle.

  5. Select the items that you want to add as components to your bundle.

  6. For each item, enter the quantity that you want in a single bundle.

  7. Click Save Bundle.

If you sell products that use the same item as other products, then you can set those products as bundles and select the item as a component SKU.

Available component quantities for your bundles

To sell your bundles, SFN must have enough component SKUs in stock to create each bundle. When SFN doesn't have enough component SKUs in stock at any fulfillment center to create a single bundle, then your bundle has zero Available quantity and is displayed as out of stock on your store.

The Available quantity of your bundle is determined by the following calculations:

  • At each fulfillment center, the quantity of bundles depends on the Available quantity of component SKUs and the amount of each that are required to make the bundle.
  • The total available quantity of bundles is the sum of the quantity of bundles that can be made across all SFN fulfillment centers.
  • Bundle availability calculation doesn't account for preorders, reservations, and pending fulfillment requests for its components.

For example, assume that a hair wash bundle requires one shampoo and one conditioner component product. If you have 10 shampoos and 15 conditioners in stock at a fulfillment center, then you can sell 10 of those bundles. Even if you have extra shampoos in another fulfillment center, your items must be at the same location to create a sellable bundle.

Access the available quantity for your bundle

You can access the Available quantity for your bundle in the product inventory of your Shopify admin or your SFN app.

Steps:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Apps, and then click Shopify Fulfillment Network.
  2. Click the Inventory tab.

  3. Click the bundle that you want to access.

Edit a bundle in SFN

You can add, remove, and adjust the quantities of component SKUs in an existing bundle. If you want to edit a bundle that has open orders for SFN to fulfill, then all of those orders must be fulfilled or canceled.

Steps:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Apps, and then click Shopify Fulfillment Network.
  2. Click the Inventory tab.

  3. Click the bundle that you want to edit.

  4. Click Edit bundle.

  5. Adjust the items and the quantities of items that you want in your bundle.

  6. Click Save bundle.

Editing product information for a bundle

If you want to change any product information about a bundle other than its SKU, such as its price, variants, and availability, then you can edit its product details in your Shopify admin.

Changing the SKU for a bundle

If you want to change the SKU of a bundle, then you need to set up a new bundle.

If you want most of the information to be the same, then you can duplicate your product for the original bundle to create a new one.

To prevent your customers from purchasing the original bundle, you need to make your original product for the bundle unavailable on all sales channels.
