Whether it's a simple cheeseburger, a gift basket, or any other product you have comprising of other products in your catalog, Bundles are here to help and ensure that the accurate quantities are deducted automatically.

Having a product, such as an ingredient, that shows up in many other products is very common. Bundles are great for accurately tracking ingredients/components and knowing when to reorder more.

Starting with Bundles can be challenging. After you complete the quick questionnaire below, we'll send you a custom video tailored to your needs.

In this example, how you can use Bundles to create a cheeseburger.

Cheeseburger Example

1. Create components/ingredients

  • Before you create a Bundle, you must first complete the components/ingredients of the Bundle as products (or variants) in Thrive.

    • NOTE: Thrive supports partial quantities on inventory. For example, you can put that quantity into inventory if you only have .758 of a product.

  • We recommend indicating the measurement unit you'll use in the variant name. This will make it easier to build your bundles:

  • SKU and Barcode numbers are always optional. Prices can be set to zero if you are not selling the component by itself.

  • Price and tax should be entered when building the final Bundled product available for purchase.

  • Setting your components' costs (per unit) will allow you to track your margins on Bundled products accurately.

  • Create an entry for each component/ingredient.

2. Create the Bundle

Once all components have been created, you can bundle them together. In this case, we'll bundle our components into the final cheeseburger product.

  • Go to the Products page and create a new product.

  • Then, convert the product into a Bundle as shown below:

  • NOTE: You might need to side-scroll on that section to expose the clickable gear wheel.

On the next screen, you will be prompted to select the components of the Bundle. See for yourself:
