Frequently Bought Together

Once the plugin is installed, you’ll get a new Premmerce menu item added to your WordPress Dashboard. Under this, and then Frequently Bought Together, you get the main settings page.

On this page, you can do the following:  

  • Create a bundle;
  • Delete a bundle;
  • Activate/deactivate a bundle; 
  • See the main info about existing bundles in the columns “Attached products” and “Enable”;
  • Go to the bundle editor page by clicking the button “Edit” or on the name of the primary product;
  • Go to the bundle page in Frontend by clicking the “View” button.

Changes the plugin enables on the product edit page. Overview

You can also access the frequently bought together settings from the individual WooCommerce product page. In the Product data section, you’ll see Bundles.

This section basically duplicates the features of the main page of the plugin, but for individual products.

Here you can do the following:

  • Add a new bundle;
  • Delete a bundle;
  • See the main info about bundles in the columns “Attached products” and “Enable”;
  • Edit a bundle; 
  • Go to the bundle page in the Frontend by clicking the “View” button. 

The table shows only the bundles in which this product is the main product. Bundles created for categories cannot be edited on this page.

How to create a Frequently Bought Together bundle on the main settings page

↑ Back to top

Your Frequently Bought Together boxes consist of product bundles. A bundle can consist only of simple products, variable products and product variations.

Here’s how to create this:

  1. Select the main product from the search drop-down list. You can choose only one option

  2. Select an attached product from the search drop-down list.
    You can start typing and the drop-down list will automatically start to populate with product names from your WooCommerce product inventory. This saves you having to search products by ID. You can give your customers a similar front-end WooCommerce search experience with our sister plugin.

  3. Optionally, you can add a discount. Choose either from a % percentage discount or a $ fixed price discount. This discount will only be available for customers who use the Frequently Bought Together bundle, and add the whole thing to their cart:
  4. If you need to attach another product, repeat steps 2 and 3.
  5. If you have the wrong item, click on the cross in the row with the product you need to delete from the list.
  6. If you don’t want the bundle to display in the Frontend, deactivate the “Enable bundle?” box. 
  7. Click “Add new bundle”

If you want the attached product to be a gift – set a discount of 100%.

If you want the attached product to be sold for the full price in a bundle – enter 0 or leave the discount box blank.

The price for the main product is taken from the regular price or, if available, from the sale price.

The price for the attached product is taken from the regular price only.

Important notes for using the plugin

↑ Back to top

A bundle will not be displayed in the Frontend if:

  • At least one of the products in the bundle is not published, i.e. has the status of a Draft, Pending Review, or Scheduled;
  • At least one of the products in the bundle is not available (Out of stock), if the option Preorder (Backorders) is activated, then the bundle will be displayed;
  • At least one of the products in the bundle doesn’t have a price;
  • At least one product is in the Trash of the admin panel. 

In the table, the tag “Hidden” is added to the bundles that are not displayed.

You can see the reason why the bundle is not displayed on the bundle edit page.

  

If at least one of the goods in the bundle is private, the bundle will be displayed only to users who can view private products.
