Do you have products that you like to bundle together on your WooCommerce shop? Or even better, would you like to give your customers the option to create their own bundles?
Think of it this way. When you go to some candy stores, many of them let you pick and choose what to put in the box. There’s nothing worse than getting a few of those cherry chocolates scattered in your box when you cannot stand the taste of them, right? Imagine giving your customers the same options on your online store.
Or perhaps you sell tech items. And would like to give some options for some packaging.
That is where the Custom Product Boxes for WooCommerce plugin comes in.
Custom Product Boxes for WooCommerce Plugin
This plugin is filled with features that you, as the shop owner, can use to create pre-filled boxes and unlimited assorted boxes. You can even allow checkout of a box that is partially filled, as well as set fixed price—or calculate them dynamically.
You can also easily create a buy one, get one free or get 4 for the price of 3 offer. And as mentioned, customers can create their own custom boxes and bundles, or add or remove an option on an existing bundle. As you can see, the skies the limit on what this one can do for you.
You will also have some general settings that you may want to tweak, especially around labels.
Creating the Custom Box Product
Once you have activated the plugin, an option for a Custom Product Box will appear as a Product Data and here are the Custom Box Settings.
The Pricing Type gives us three options, the first for a set price of a package you as the store owner would create. You can also offer the customer option to add or remove products, with or without a based price that you would charge.
The Box Items lets you set the the maximum number of products that can be added to any box. This is good if you want to have a limited number in a package, say six coffee samples, but still give them the chance to choose from 18 samples.
The next three settings give you even more flexibility. It’s great that you can set a max of say, 8 items for a box, but still give the customer the option to only purchase 5 without having to fill it. New products can be automatically added to the top. And Gift Message is self-explanatory, while giving the customer an option to add a message.
Easily add what products you want to the box.
If your product is a variable product, you can easily add all associated variations.
And pre-fill the box with the products you want. It’s totally optional: make these mandatory or offer the customer the option to remove it if you don’t have that product in stock.
Once you have started to create your product bundles, you will be able to go into your customizer and what your view of your bundled product will look like.
A Lot of Ways to Use This Plugin
To see the what bundled products look like, I would suggest you check out their site and they have some excellent examples that will give you a better idea of the frontend products.
I’ve just given you a couple of examples of ways to use this plugin, but as you can guess, there are no limits to the kind of bundles or packages you could create. They also have some features coming down the road, such as an additional 3 or 4 built-in layouts to choose from, an optional gift wrap feature that opens up a popup with the gift wraps you choose to show. Customers have the ability to select a category and then select products from it to fill the custom box.
