Bundles

OVERVIEW 

Bundles are a single SKU in Shopify representing two or more SKUs sold together at a discount. This is a common practice to incentivize customers to buy additional products and increase average order value.

Bundles is a feature available only on Loop that allows you to improve your customer experience and save time for your support team by making custom-built bundles eligible to be returned in your customer portal. This feature is available on our Pro and Plus tiers.

Unlike other solutions, Bundles gives your customers a streamlined way to exchange individual products within a bundle, removes headache for your team by allowing you to add your bundles into Loop instead of changing how they are built in Shopify, and can be customized to support your own discount and eligibility rules.

Customer Experience

If a customer goes to return a bundle in Loop, the bundle name will appear with a stacked set of product images indicating there are multiple products in the bundle. There is a Show all drop down indicator that will display all of the products within the bundle when selected. To initiate a return, the customer can either select one of the products within the bundle or select the Return All button to return the entire bundle. 


Setup: Manual and CSV


Go to Settings > Bundles in the Loop admin. All bundles configured to be returned in Loop will be listed here. There are two options to add bundles, manually and through a CSV upload. Both methods are outlined below.

Note:  For both methods, the product SKU added to the bundles should always be the variant SKU. If your bundle has size variants, you should create separate bundles for each size, i.e. one small bundle, one medium bundle, etc.

Manually Add Bundles

  1. Click Create Bundle button in the upper right hand corner.
  2. Name your bundle and add its SKU as it appears in Shopify.
  3. Click add products + then click the checkbox for all products you want included in this bundle. 
    1. Clicking the product will automatically select all the variants. Click the caret to view all variants and unselect variants if needed.
  4. Toggle on Partial returns if you want your customers to be able to return bundle products individually.
  5. If Partial returns is toggled on:
    1. Select either Proportional prices or Even prices.
    2. Check Don't allow exchanges on bundle SKU if you don't want to allow a return on the entire bundle SKU and will require each product to be returned individually.
    3. Check Limit returns if you want to limit the bundle products to exchanges only.
  6. Click Save
  7. Repeat process until all of your bundles are added.

CSV Upload

  1. Click Export CSV to download a csv template with all of the required fields for adding bundles.
  2. Complete the required fields on the csv template for the bundles you want to add and save the file.
    1. Enter Yes or No for Allow Partial Returns, Disallow Bundle Exchange and Exchange Only fields- These 3 fields need to be the same for each product included in the same bundle
    2. Enter Proportional or Even for Discount Method field- The discount method needs to be the same for each product included in the same bundle 
    3. Enter the quantity of the product that is included in each individual bundle 
  3. Click Import CSV, then choose file and select the bundles file created from the template.
  4. Once the file is loaded, click the Save and overwrite button
Note:  If there is an import error, an inactive tag will appear next to the bundle. Click on the bundle to review the error detail.


Returns Detail

The return will indicate if returned products were part of a bundle with a blue Bundled tag. The return detail will also include the product SKU, bundle SKU and original product price crossed and greyed out next to the bundled product price. 

Note:  Loop is unable to restock a product from a partial bundle return. If the entire bundle is being returned, it can be restocked since the bundle SKU was the only SKU linked to the order.

FAQ

What if one of the items in my bundle is tagged as exchange only/final sale or blocklisted?

A: If an item within the bundle has been tagged as exchange only/final sale or blocklisted this would still apply to that specific item. It would not apply to the entire bundle or impact the other individual items within the bundle.

I uploaded my bundle, but one of my customers is not seeing the new bundle functionality?

A: If a customer had previously accessed their return in the portal prior to the bundle being created in Loop, then the old bundle functionality will be displayed.
