Reference 1: Allow vendors to upload Bundled Product Type
Add bundled product type using AFM
Go to Add Product page under Product Manager from the Vendor Dashboard.
Add a Product Name (title), description, product image(s) in the first section.
Moving to the second section – Select Product Bundle from the Product Type drop-down menu.
Enable the Virtual checkbox, if your product is a digital product or does not require shipping. This removes the Shipping tab from your product.
Enable the Downloadable checkbox, if you have downloadable files that need to be made available to your customer after purchasing the product.
General Tab – Enter product prices here. You can also schedule a sale period in this tab itself – clicking Schedule will open start and end date fields for the sale.
Inventory Tab – You can add SKU (unique to products), choose to whether manage stock for the product individually and define whether to allow back orders and more. If Manage Stock remains unchecked, only the ‘Stock status’ option is visible in the Inventory tab and the single product page will only display the stock status (if set to out of stock) and you will be responsible for updating the Stock Status manually. However, if manage stock is enabled, the options that will be visible are:
Stock quantity – On updating the Stock Quantity, WooCommerce auto-manages the inventory and auto-updates the Stock Status as Stock, Out of Stock or On Backorder.
Allow backorders? – Whether or not to allow backorders (order even after out of stock!).
Low stock threshold
Selecting “No” (default) from the Sold Individually dropdown will allow customers to modify quantity of the selected product. Selecting “Yes” will limit the product to one per order while “Matching configurations only” prevents identically configured bundles from being purchased together.
Shipping tab – An optional tab depending whether it is a digital (virtual) product or not. In this tab, you can configure the weight and dimensions of the product as an entirety and set the shipping class for the product.
