Bundle and Assembled products
the concept of bundle and assembled products in woopos is useful, however the default woocommerce doesn’t support these two product types, so how can i publish bundled product to my woocommerce? do i have to install certain plugin?
These functions are currently for POS only. We don’t do plugins right now. You can sell a simple (assembled) product online. Then use POS to assemble or disassemble.
Ok, and when i transfer assembled products to my webstore, will it also update the stock quantity for the simple product in my woocommerce?
i assume bundled products should be published as grouped product in woocommerce.
Assembled products are physical products you manage stock quantities. Like you sell computer assembled from motherboard, RAM, CPU, SSD etc. When you assembling, you increase quantity on the computer and decrease quantity on the parts. So the quantities of the parts will not change when you sell the computer, they will be changed if you assemble or disassemble or sell parts individually.
Bundled products (in POS only) are virtual products you don’t manage stock quantities on parent/bundle product but manage stock quantities on individual products. Like you sell a camera package including body and lens. You don’t track stock quantities on the package, but you track quantities on body and lens. When you sell the package, the POS will auto add body and lens (all children products) to sell, and show package price and hide body and lens prices.
Grouped products (in WooCommerce only) are virtual products listed on WooCommerce. Nikon Camera body and lens can be in Nikon Cameras group. Customers can buy body or lens individually from a group (Nikon Cameras group) of items.
So the answers to your questions:
1. the simple(child) product stock quantity will not be updated.
2. Bundled products cannot be published to WooCommerce. Assembled products will be published to WooCommerce as simple products.
