Product bundles?
« on: April 29, 2022, 21:39:42 pm »
Hello devs,

Here https://virtuemart.net/news/506-virtuemart-4 it says one can create product bundles, but it's not clear how. Can anyone tell how products bundles can be created? Thanks.
Cheers,
George

Create a customfield bundle. Select a category there, if you want to list only a certain type of products in the product edit. For example you sell pocket lights and you want to offer different types of batteries, then you could set the customfield on batteries. Name the customfield "Batteries" Now go to your product pocket light, add the customfield Batteries. Then you see a pricing option and a dropdown of the products in the category "batteries". Then you can for example add a cheap battery for free, or give the opportunity to select another battery, with more power for some extra price. Or a reduced price of the actual price of this battery. So if you change the price of the battery, the price in the bundle is also changed. That is the trick of it.

I see. It is useful for bundling a product with other variants.

Is there a way to create a collective product, i.e. a product that is made up of several other products, all at once? And its price to be the sum total of the products it is made of?
Thank you.
Cheers,
George

Product X is made up of product A, B, C, D (a bundle, or compound product, or a pack of products).
Price of product X = price A + price B + price C + price D.

If product X (actually „pack of products X”) is bought, the stock of A, B, C and D products decreases.

I think this:
https://breakdesigns.net/extensions/joomla/product-bundles
www.minijoomla.org  - new portal for Joomla!, Virtuemart and other extensions
XML Easy Feeder - feeds for FB, GMC,.. from products, categories, orders, users, articles, acymailing subscribers and database table
Virtuemart Email Manager - customs email templates
Import products for Virtuemart - from CSV and XML
Rich Snippets - Google Structured Data
VirtueMart Products Extended - Slider with products, show Others bought, Products by CF ID and others filtering products

Price of product X = price A + price B + price C + price D.

If product X (actually „pack of products X”) is bought, the stock of A, B, C and D products decreases.

This is what we also need.   However, if Product A has a $10 price increase, then this should be reflected in the total for Product X.

Did you find a solution?

Thank you.

Lol, I dont know what to say. I was not explaing this? It is the same as with the multivariants with children. You can use the parent product as presenter for all your variants, or you can use the parent product as the first variant. The same here. You can use the main product as part of the bundle, or you can use the product as "The bundle". As you wish.

You can modify any prices. You can use the original price or modify it with a percentage or fixed amount. You can set products as fixed bundle, or optional. There is really no wish left. I am going to change my "Bundles" in the extensions store and it should also work with the download plugin correctly.

and now I read the rest of the thread.

I did answer this, but I see, we need a docs for that.
