SQUARE FOR RETAIL

Easily create and manage product bundles

Group and sell a combination of complementary products together as a single item – leading to an array of promotional opportunities for your business.

What is product bundling?

Product bundling involves grouping several products together and selling them as a single unit, which decrements stock for each individual component inside the kit. This promotional strategy can encourage customers to buy more items, meaning larger revenues for retail businesses.

Create and manage bundles

Easily create a bundle via your online Square Dashboard. Automated pricing tips show your total stock cost and how much to price the bundle.

Set a single price for the entire bundle

Upsell and cross-sell opportunities to help improve inventory turnover, increase sales, reduce shipping costs or function as means to introduce new products.

Track stock for each item in the bundle

Accurately track inventory on all items, whether they’re in a bundle or sold separately, to reduce admin time and reconciliation.

Sell bundles online and in-store

You can sell bundles either in-store, online or both. See which channels are selling the most of each bundle and how much profit your business made.
