How do I set up product bundles in Virtuemart?
Product bundles, or packs of related products, are becoming increasingly popular among ecommerce shops. Setting up product bundles in Virtuemart can be a great way to encourage customers to buy more from your store. But it can be tricky to get it right, so here are some tips to help you get started.
1. Decide what type of product bundle you want
Virtuemart has two different types of product bundles: “Promotional Bundles” and “Related Products”. Promotional bundles involve offering a discount for customers who buy more than one item, whereas Related Products are simply a group of items related to each other.
2. Set up the individual products
Before you can create a bundle, you need to set up the individual items that you want to include. Make sure to enter all the necessary information, such as price, description, images, etc. for each item.
3. Configure the bundle
Once the individual products are set up, you can configure the bundle. In Virtuemart, go to the “Bundle” tab in the Product Configuration section. Here, you can select the products that you want to include in the bundle and configure the discount, if applicable.
4. Test the Bundle
Once you have set up the bundle, make sure to test it to ensure everything is working correctly. This is especially important if you are offering a discount, as you want to make sure it is applied correctly.
5. Consider using a Plugin to Help
