Bundle Products are groupings of products that are purchased together. For example, let’s say you owned a ski shop and sold equipment, customers could come in and buy each item individually, but it is likely that you would also offer ski equipment packages. A ski equipment Bundle Product could be a selection of skis, bindings, boots and poles sold together at different price points. The price of the ski bundle product would depend on the specific skis, bindings, boots and poles offered within the package.
Within the bundle product, the different choices of items offered are called Bundle Groups. In the ski equipment package example, there would be a bundle group for skis, one for bindings, one for boots and one for poles.
