What are Bundles?
Bundles allow you to offer "build-a-box" style subscriptions for your customers.
Bundles features are available to merchants on our 💎 Excel plan. With Bundles, you can offer "build-a-box" style subscriptions for your customers by allowing them to curate their own assortment of recurring products.
There are three parts to setting up Bundles with Smartrr, outlined below:
Create a bundle product to sell in Shopify by navigating to Products and clicking Add product.
Fill in product details, including name, photos, price, etc.
Add at least one Variant. If your bundle is determined by size we recommend setting up variants something like 4 pack, 6 pack, 8 pack etc.
In order to know which products can be included in this bundle, create a new collection in Shopify with all potential bundle products. We recommend naming this collection the same as your newly created dummy bundle parent product. Set the Collection type to Manual.
Only add the products you want to be available as options within the bundle. DO NOT add the parent dummy bundle product to this collection.
In Smartrr, navigate to Subscription Programs and Bundles. Click Create bundle.
The first step is to select a Subscription Program to link the bundle you're about to create.
Next, select the parent dummy bundle product you created above as your Bundle Product. *You will not see this as an option in the modal if the product has not been added to your Subscription Program first.
The ability to trigger the Bundles modal can be placed anywhere on your site. For example, it can live on your parent bundle PDP as a CTA button: "Build my bundle".
Once installed, the Bundles modal can also be styled with custom colors and typography by editing the CSS on the snippet
smartrr-bundle-css.liquidin your theme’s liquid code.
Currently, while bundle items removed from your Shopify collections and subscription program will no longer be available new customers to add to their bundle, it will still show up for customers who have already purchased subscriptions a bundle with this item. This is a known issue, and Smartrr is actively working on a fix. Please contact your CSM for more information.
Smartrr offers two ways to pass bundle information to your 3PL for picking and packing:
- 1.As custom attributes
- 2.As line items
By default, Smartrr appends bundle items to a Shopify order with the custom attributes. When this is the case, your customers' orders in Shopify will look something like the below:
In the above instance, the items in the parent bundle All-In Cheese Fruit box are separated as custom attributes Cheese No Variant: 1, Grapes Red Globe: 1, and Ben's Cheese: 1. The attribute _smartrr_info appends a JSON breakdown of included bundle variants and their associated selling plans.
Alternatively, you can check to enable Use line items when creating your bundle:
When line items are enabled, your customers' orders in Shopify will look something like the below:
When line items are enabled, the Smartrr app will automatically go in and edit the Shopify order to append order items. Bundle items are added at a 100% discount.
This will allow you or your 3PL center to fulfill items at a line-item level:
To validate an order has been updated with line items, your 3PL can check for order line item properties in the ORDER_CREATE payload. If this payload contains
_smartrr_infothen the 3PL should continue to wait on that order for another 10 minutes.
