Introducing Simple Bundle Product

The Simple Bundle Product extension makes bundle installation for admins and their purchasing for customers as simple as possible by introducing the following features:

  • Excessive bundle setting options are hidden;
  • Bundles can be added to backend orders;
  • Bundle customization step is eliminated.

Extension Logic

The module adds the new option to the ‘New Product’ page for bundle products. It allows switching to a simplified view with fewer settings compared to the native functionality. However, the core Magento logic remained unchanged, meaning that bundles are created and handled by Magento the same way as before.

In essence, an admin needs to add bundle items in order to create a new bundle product. Once the bundle has been created, the admin can add it to new orders.

On the storefront, customers can now add already configured bundles to their cart without customizing them just like they do this with a simple product type. 


Backend Configuration

Extension Settings

Start with configuring the extension settings under Stores > Configuration > AHEADWORKS EXTENSIONS > Simple Bundle Product.

Extension Settings

Here you are presented with one option only: Default Title List of Bundle Products. Specify the appropriate title in the field and click on the ‘Save Config’ button to apply the setting. 


Configuring a Simple Bundle

 Now, let’s create a simple bundle. Traditionally, the bundle is configured in Catalog > Products.

 First, switch to the ‘Simple Bundle’ mode. 

Switching to the 'Simple Bundle' Mode

Once you’ve enabled the parameter, the pop-up alert is displayed.

Pop-up Warning

Nothing to worry about - just a warning that the native bundle options will now be unavailable. Click on the ‘Continue’ button.

Next, scroll down to the ‘Bundle Items’ section to see what changed there. 

'Bundle Items' Section (Simplified View)

As you can see, the ‘Add Option’ button is now hidden. The ‘Option Title’ field displays the value you previously indicated in the extension settings. So, all you need to do to is to add the required items to the bundle the same way as in the native solution.

After the bundle is composed, the section will look like this:

 'Bundle Items' Section (with Bundle Items)

In the simplified view, the ‘Input Type’ section is now hidden. It’s automatically set to ‘Checkbox’ and can't be deselected by a customer on a storefront. The ‘Required’ parameter is enabled by default.

Adding Bundles to New Orders

In addition to bundle creation, the module improves the functionality of the ‘New Order’ page.

Let’s see it in action! Go to Sales > Orders and click on the ‘Create New Order’ button. Select the required customer and start adding products to the order.

Backend Order Support

Now you can easily add your bundles to new orders. Notice: you don’t have to additionally set them up for this purpose. Still, you can perform a simple configuration. Click on the ‘Configure’ active link next to the corresponding bundle product’s title.

Here you are suggested to set the quantity of the bundle product. If you leave the ‘Quantity’ field empty, the quantity will be ‘1’ (default value).

Bundle Quantity Setting


Simple Bundles on the Storefront 

Simple Bundle Product makes the interface of bundle product pages more user-friendly. Check it out!

Simple Bundle Product Page

Bundle items are presented as a list with active links to corresponding item pages.

All the required configuration is already performed for customers.

They just need to add the product to a cart. That’s it! Mind that if you need to use simple bundles along with the native ones, you can do it smoothly.
