Create fixed product configurations

  • Updated

Often, preconfigured kits and bundles are stored in a company's ERP or PIM system. However, there may be occasions where it is necessary to create a permanent or temporary kit and bundle, known in the Admin Console as a fixed configuration. Use the following steps to create a fixed configuration.

While these do appear on the website, orders with these configurations can be saved, but CANNOT be added to a List.

  1. Go to Admin Console > Catalog > Products.
  2. Click Add New Product to create a new parent product, which serves as the container for the bundled items.
  3. Click Save to save the new parent product.
  4. Click the Configuration finger tab.
  5. Click the Fixed Configuration Type radio button.

  6. Click Add Configuration Section.
  7. Enter a Section Name on the Details Tab.

    This typically is a logical description of the collection of products.

  8. Click the Options finger tab, and click Add Configuration Section Options.
  9. Select the Product Id from the field.
  10. Determine if the product price will be used to calculate the configuration price.
  11. Enter the Sort Order and click Save.
  12. Repeat steps 8-11 for each product to add to the configuration.

    In order for the product to show on a website, the Product must be added to a Category, and the Search Index for Product and Category must be rebuilt. To rebuild the indexes, go to the Admin Console > Marketing > Search > Indexing.
