I have tried to fiddle around with this function but do not seem to get any changes.
There is also nothing in the help section.

I want to bundle a gun with 2 magazines at a discounted price.
How do I go about doing this?

Hi,

Having products as bundle of others, the quantity of the bundled product will be updated after the purchase of the main product.
That's all it does.
It's to keep a consistent inventory for your products.

It would be great if the bundles also would show the images of the products and link to the original products in the bundle.

Discount price is an option, but it would be just ok for me if the shop just adds the prices into a total.

It can combine everything of the product, the stock is not so important for me.


Just my 2 cents :-)

Hi,

perhaps we can add another suggestion:
If one of the products in the bundle is out of stock, it would make sense that the bundled product itself would also automatically be out of stock.

Extending this idea further, it wouldn't be necessary to manually fill in the quantity of the bundle at all, since it can be determined by the stock of each of the products in the bundle.
Let's say you have a bundle of two products, red and blue flowers. If the blue flowers have 8 in stock and the red flowers have 5 in stock, than it shouldn't really be possible to buy more than 5 of the bundle either, right?

It would be a great improvement if Hikashop can keep track of a bundled product's stock like this automatically.

Kind regards,

Hi,

related to our previous message above regarding stock of bundled products, we've come across an issue.
Although Hikashop automatically keeps track of the maximum quantity of the bundle by checking the stock of each product in the bundle, it still allows a user to buy the bundle as well as the individual products beyond what is in stock.

For example let's say you have a bundle of two products, red flowers (8 in stock) and blue flowers (5 in stock). It is not possible to buy more than 5 of the bundle, which is correct, but it is however possible to buy 5 of the bundle as well as 5 of the blue flowers. In other words, a customer can this way buy 10 blue flowers in total even though we only have 5 in stock.
Would it be possible to prevent this from happening and properly check total quantity when a bundle and also one of its individual products are added to cart?

Thanks for the help.

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback. That's indeed a good point.
I was able to reproduce the problem and we've added a patch on our end in order to take that into account.
You can download again the install package on our website and install it on yours in order to get the patch.
