The Bundle Configuration Page vs Dummy Product Page

To explain, when the Bundle has been successfully built and configured in the Bundle Builder App Space, two features are added to the main Shopify storefront; an automated collection of Bundle Products and a linked Bundle Configuration Page.

Bundle Configuration Page

This is the feature customers should be using to add their Bundles to the Cart, with the grid of Bundle Items ready for the customer to sort through and select from.

You can easily access each of your Bundle's Bundle Configuration Page via the app dashboard:

1. Admin
2. Apps > Bundle Builder

3. Scroll down to your chosen Bundle > View

Customers trying to interact with your Bundle outside of the Bundle Page will get wrong prices and configurations if they use any other method including the theme-standard Product Page - for the Bundle to work as it has been designed to, it must be used through the Bundle page, alone.

Please note this also applies to other apps or options that may allow the customer to add your bundle to the cart and bypass the Bundle Configuration Page - wishlist apps, theme-provided 'Quick Buy' functionalities and alternative payment gateways all being great examples of pre-existing parts of your storefront that may negatively affect your use of Bundles by offering unintended bypasses to customers.

Along as the customer works from the Bundle Configuration Page > Cart Page > Checkout Page, they are definitely welcome to use Google Pay, PayPal and other payment providers to complete the transaction once they have reached these, but using this options before this point in the transaction may interfere with the app's coding, presenting yourself as the merchant with logistical and fulfilment issues as not all data about the order will be present.

This Configuration Page alone allows the customer to correctly add their selected items within the Bundle's limits and add this to the Cart - Bundle Builder's coding needs this to happen for the correct pricing, discounts and rules to be applied to the Product.

You can see an example of the Bundle Page on our demo store, here:

Bundle Product

This is added to your Shopify Admin > Product space when the Bundle is added as an automatic Collection.

These are needed for both some internal processes the app needs to work through in order to properly gel with Shopify's native platform correctly and to help with organising and integrating the bundles within your existing collections.

As an example, the Bundle Product allows the Bundle to listed on your storefront as part of your theme's Collection Page template and appear when searched for, as well allowing you to share the bundle as a standard 'product' in newsletters and on social media.

To both aid you in finding these and to help with the integrating into your theme and wider storefront, all Bundle Products use an exclusive bundle type - 'Custom Bundles.'

This allows you to quickly find your bundles via searching for this type in the Admin > Products Section

To clarify an additional point - all the data listed on these Bundle Product pages is dummy-data and does not accurately reflect the Shipping Price, Inventory Numbers or Total Price. 

The Shopify platform requires these aspects to be present per product, but the figures present here are replaced with the correct data when the customer uses the Bundle Configuration Page, as mentioned above.

This is the above Bundle Page's Bundle Product

While you're welcome to use the Bundle Product to display a bundle within a Collection - please do not go into Shopify Admin > Products to try and modify the bundle price.

This can negatively affect the bundle's settings and parameters in unexpected ways - the price attached to the Bundle Product is just a number assigned for the sake of the Shopify Platform and the correct price will always be applied when the Bundle Page is used by the customer.

The following FAQs and help guides can offer more information and context for this process:

Bundle Builder - Integration

However to summarise the above - the price attached to Bundle Products is just an assigned figure rather than being the true price and can be safely ignored, the best way to display bundles is to use the automatically created Bundle Collection or use the generated Bundle URL in order to directly link straight to the Bundle Page.

Hopefully, this makes sense and helps you get your bundles integrated - if you have any further questions regarding this system, please don't hesitate to contact us at Agile Support
