You may often find the need to sell one or more products together.  This is accomplished in Prestashop 1.5 using the PACK option in Products.  The following tutorial will show you the steps involved in creating and managing a product sold as a "pack."

 

How to add and manage pack products in Prestashop 1.5

  1. Login to the Prestashop 1.5 Administration Panel as an Administrator
  2. Go to  the menu bar and hover over CATALOG until the drop-down menu appears. Click on PRODUCTS
  3. If you must manage an existing inventory you will see a list of your products appear. Select the item you wish to edit, otherwise select the green ADD NEW button.  Look for Informations> PRODUCT GLOBAL INFORMATION, then select PACK.  You will see the following screen:

    prestashop15-globalinfo-type-pack


    Notice that this screen illustrates when you are creating a PACK item.  If you had selected a product that was a pack item, the screen would appear as the following:

    prestashop15-global-info-product-pack-1


    The example above shows that the 1 pair of the SHURE SE210 Sound-Isolating Earphones for iPod and iPhone are bundled with the iPod Nano.

  4. When you are creating a PACK, you are creating a combination of items to sell.  This affects many things for the product including:

    -Information and description
    -Price
    -SEO
    -Images used for the product(s)
    -Shipping
    -Features

    And it may affect the other options within PRODUCT management within Prestashop.  You will need to make sure that you account for all of the necessary changes so that you can accurately describe the bundled products for your customers.  Change these options as needed in order to manage the products you are selling in combination with another product.

  5. Select the SAVE option at the top of the screen to preserve your changes



Once you have set all of the required changes you can see how the bundled product will appear in your storefront.  Here's an example of the headphones and iPod packed together:

Using the PACK option in Prestashop 1.5 allows you to easily add one or more products in a bundle that you can provide to your customers. For further information on managing your PRODUCTS within the Prestashop, go to Managing Products within Prestashop 1.5.

What about variants? How do I create a pack with a variant from item A, a variant from item B and a variant from item C with a set price for purchasing them together in said pack?

Hello TracyS,

Thank you for your question. I could not find any "built-in" way to do this in PrestaShop.

An alternate option may be to create separate products for:
  • variant from item A
  • variant from item B
  • variant from item C
Then create the pack with these products.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

The problem with creating separate items for these will be that PrestaShop is hooked into our in-house software and inventory would not be accurately reflected between the two since they aren't inventoried separately. A package is pulled off the shipping shelf as it's individual components which are the inventoried items. We aren't keeping packages as their own inventory.

Do you know a programmer that could develop this functionality?

Hello TracyS,

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, our web design team can only assist with websites that they have created.

The Official PrestaShop Forums is a good place to seek help, since it is frequented by PrestaShop developers.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

I have the same question.  The product I have needs to be in a Pack with varient item A, varient item B, and varient item C.  I was able to get PrestaShop to allow the selection for each varient, but the inventory side of things doesn't work out.  If you know of any other ways to do this, that would be great. 

Also, my partner is very good at programming.  What's the easiest approach to customizing inventory since PrestaShop doesn't do what we are looking for?

Thanks,

-David

Hello David,

As JonhPaul had mentioned above you might want to checkout the PrestaShop forums and ask your question there to have it answered by a PrestaShop developer.

If your partner is good at programming the best place to start looking would be the PrestaShop Developer guide for possible references of inventory management.

Please let us know if you had any further questions at all.
