Magento Bundle Products

When creating Magento catalog, you can use different product types, bundle product being one of them. Bundles belongs to the composite products type. They represent a separate, single entry in the catalog, though it embraces multiple items. You can put to bundle merchandises any of the simple or virtual product from the catalog.

Bundle Magento product lets buyers customize the purchase and choose wares that meet their requirements. Thus, such an item comprises several products and customers should choose from different configuration options when buying this product.

Oftentimes notions of bundle and grouped products confuse store owners. Bundle products represent more complex product combinations. Each of associated products has one or several selections. Unlike grouped wares, components of which are ordered as separate items, bundles act like configurable: in pricing and orders they are represented by parent and child items.

Computer is a typical example of Magento bundle products. Case, monitor, warranty can be added as bundle items, customer can select between (monitor size, case colour, warranty term).
