How to Create Shopify Product Bundles Using an App
While Shopify doesn’t have built-in capabilities for selling product bundles, there are plenty of third-party apps available that can help you get started.
For example, apps like Pickystory offers you options to create Shopify bundles automatically or manually. It also lets you display these bundles on the product page, cart page, etc., and even as a popup.
Let’s get started on how to bundle products on Shopify store using Pickystory.
Eight Easy Steps to Set Product Bundles on Pickystory

Alternatively, from the Deals tab, click on Create deal which is on the top right of the screen. Then, hit the +Create bundle and choose Frequently bought together.

How to Create Shopify Product Bundles Without an App
In the previous section, we saw how to create product bundles using a Shopify app. Here, we will check out how to do the same without using the app.
Four Easy Steps to Create Shopify bundles without using an App
Step 1: Create a new product
Login to your Shopify admin. Create a parent product of the bundle. Add name, description, and price details.
Step 2: Add variant
Attach the variant products that you want to offer in the bundle. Set the variant inventory to zero(0), so that customers cannot buy these products alone.
Step 3: Create collection
Add the parent product and variants together as a collection. Give a name to it.
Step 4: Discounts
To enable discounts, go to the Sales channel under Admin. Choose the collection from the Type list and set the discount values. Once done, hit Save changes.
Now, your customers can opt for bundles when they pick the parent product while shopping.
Disadvantages of Shopify Bundles
Yet, there are some setbacks to these methods. So, what exactly do they entail? Let’s find out.
Using a 3rd party app to create bundles means, you are paying extra. Hence, we advise you to try the app first and then subscribe if you are happy with the results.
On the other hand, when you settle down with the other method, you will end up tracking your inventory manually every day.
“I finally found a way to create bundles without an app. No, it isn’t perfect, as you must manually keep track of inventory.” – Jeneen J.
