When holidays are coming, it's high time for online stores to offer customers great sales. Sales are an essential part of company's promotions, aren't they? Stores use promotions to find a loyal customer, who will lead to greater profits. But what if you want to offer a discount on a fixed set of products purchased together? The Magento Bundle Product Promotions extension provides you with three calculation methods that you can apply for a separate product or set your own price for the whole set. Also the extension will help to bundle products with custom options or configurable products that is impossible in default Magento.

Let's say you sell a sofa with custom options, and want to offer a coffee table, and cushions in one set. Your customers won't have ability to change bundle products or quantities defined by admin. But the extension allows to configure products' options before purchasing. Bundle Promoset is a good tool that will simplify the purchase decision.

Now let's create a promoset including products with custom options. After the extension is enabled, please choose a bundle product in the backend and find the "Bundle Items" tab. Choose "Promoset" in the "Show Bundle As" dropdown. Also the extension provides an option to standard bundle products in Magento what prevents conflicts.

After "Promoset" is selected, the additional settings, such as calculation methods, ability to show images or description, appear. You are able to set one of three price calculation methods. The first of them is "Manual discounts for associated products". The method allows to set a fixed or percentage discount for each product. After products are added to promoset using the "Add New Product" button, you can enter discounts in the "Discount" column.




The second method "Discount for the Entire Promoset" allows to apply a fixed or percentage discount for the whole package. The discount will be subtracted from the regular price. Your customers will get a general overview on the Frontend how much they save.




And the last method is "Fixed Price for the Entire Promoset" that helps to set the price for the whole package. If products have custom options as in our case, the final price won't change.




Customers will see the table with associated products on the Frontend. This table contains the initial and final prices of the whole set and each product, and the discount. If custom options increase the cost of product, the final price will change. The first picture shows how the "Manual Discounts" method works.




When you apply the "Fixed Price for the Entire Promoset" method to products with custom options that should influence on the final price, the last one won't change.




The role of creating bundle products in Magento is to offer products for lower prices that will attract new potential customers who can buy without spending hours searching necessary goods. The extension will extend your store functionality by allowing to bundle configurable and products with custom options, apply different calculation methods that will help your customers get more benefit from the full line of products. Use Bundle Product Promotions and increase profits on individual sales.
