Create and Manage Bundles with Square for Retail

With Square, you have the ability to sell a combination of complementary products together as a single unit. Referred to as a Bundle, these items can be sold at a single unit price, often discounted. Bundling can be used as a promotional sales strategy by providing upsell and cross sell opportunities to help improve inventory turnover, increase sales, reduce shipping costs, or to introduce new products. Through Square’s support for bundles, you will be able to accurately track inventory on shared components regardless if the item is sold as part of a bundle or as an individual item. 

Note: Bundles are only available with the Square for Retail Plus subscription.
