FAQ

How are tax rates calculated with bundles?
Bundles do not have a tax type, instead a bundle will calculate the tax type based off of the individual sku's included in the bundle.
For example, a bundle including a mix of wine and merchandise will include tax rates for both wine and merchandise. A bundle including only merchandise will include tax rates for only merchandise. 

 

How do shipping rates work with bundles?
A "parent" or bundled sku does not have an individual weight for shipping purposes. Instead, shipping rate is automatically calculated by added the weight of all child skus within the bundle.
For example, if my 3 Pack sku included 3 child skus each with a weight of 4 pounds, shipping costs for my parent sku would be calculated at 12 pounds.

 

How do bundles interact with ShipCompliant?
When a "parent" or bundled sku is sold, the child skus are pushed to ShipCompliant, not the parent sku. 

 

How do bundles appear on reports?
Parent skus will appear in the Commerce7 sales by sku report. When a parent sku is purchased, the report will reflect an additional sale for the parent sku, not for the child skus. 

Currently we are experiencing an issue with bundles and the inventory policy set on the child skus. Inventory is functioning correctly however when the inventory policy is set to "Don't Sell" on the child sku it will still allow the bundle to be sold and can results in a negative quantity in available for sale.

Development is working on resolving this issue and we apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions please contact Support@commerce7.com

How do bundles affect inventory?
When a parent sku is sold, inventory is pulled from the child sku's inventory.
If any child skus have a "do not sell" policy and run out of inventory, a customer will not be able to purchase the parent sku.

Here is an example of how bundles affect inventory
Let's say we have a bundle called "3 Pack Red". Inside the bundle are the following individual skus which have the following inventory levels.
2012 Cab Sav - 65 bottles available for sale
2014 Cab Sav - 40 bottles available for sale
2016 Cab Sav - 87 bottles available for sale

In this example, customers would be able to purchase up to 40 of the 3 Pack Red parent sku. After 40 of the 3 Pack Red sku was sold, here is how the inventory would look.
2012 Cab Sav - 25 bottles available for sale
2014 Cab Sav -   0 bottles available for sale
2016 Cab Sav - 67 bottles available for sale

If the 2014 Cab Sav had a "do not sell" policy, customers would no longer be able to purchase the 3 Pack Red parent sku. 

 

Can gift card SKU's be part of a bundle?

Gift card SKU's do not function when they are part of a bundle.
