About product bundling

Learn how to track your inventory of sets or bundles using components.

Bundles and sets can be structured in Craftybase using components to handle the production of each individual product in the set. This allows you to create infinite combinations of your products.

For a detailed step-by-step with screenshots on how to structure your products to create bundles, please see our Introduction to Product Bundles tutorial.

Example: I sell soaps as individual bars (Lemon and Rose) and part of a set.

To combine my soaps in sets, I would first create each of my bars as components:

  1. Lemon Soap
  2. Rose Soap

Each component would contain the recipe of materials used to create a batch. When I make a batch of this soap, I will manufacture this component to increase the stock of my soap as a material. As the finished soaps can now be treated as input materials, I can use this as an ingredient in any of my products.

The next step here is to create the following products:

  1. Lemon Soap
  2. Rose Soap
  3. Soap Set

The component material must then be added to the recipe for each product to represent the item sold. For example, the Lemon Soap needs to contain a recipe containing the Lemon Soap component, and the soap set product needs a recipe containing Lemon Soap and Rose Soap.

From here, whenever you make a new batch of your soaps, you will manufacture your component. To increase the stock of your products, you'll want to create a manufacture of the product - this will decrease your component stock and increase your product on-hand stock.

Automanufacturing bundles

This feature is available on INDIE+ plans.

Your bundle workflow can also be completely automated using the Auto Manufacture feature. To auto-manufacture your product, set this on the product whenever an order is placed for it. To also automate the component manufacture, ensure that this is set on the component in each product recipe in your set.

Removing Automanufactured product bundles

If you'd like to have automanufactured Components removed automatically for canceled orders, the remove automanufactures setting for canceled orders should be enabled. If an order is imported with a "canceled" status, Craftybase will not create an automanufacture for that order. Also, if an existing order is updated to "canceled," Craftybase will automatically remove any associated auto-manufactures. This maintains accurate manufacturing records and prevents unnecessary manufactures, keeping inventory accurate and up-to-date.

Note: If the Remove Auto Manufacture setting is not enabled, you will need to remove the manufactures associated with canceled orders manually.
