Catalog Upload - Bundles

This topic details uploads for bundled products and features a sample template.

Overview

A bundle, also known as a kit, is an offering of several products for sale as one combined product. 

Bundles are uploaded leveraging the Additional Attributes upload template with the attribute type of 'kit' or 'bundle'.  The columns of the file are used in slightly different ways than what is typical with a normal Attribute file.

Products with Custom Options may be included in Bundles.
