Scenario ↑ Back to top
You started an online store selling handcrafted soda with natural ingredients.
You want to offer customers the option to create a custom six-pack of favorites or a sampler, instead of requiring they commit to a six-pack or 12-pack of the same brand or flavor.
Here’s how to do it with WooCommerce.

Customer View ↑ Back to top
When customers visit the Soda Six-Pack product, they see the price and a prompt to choose six bottles from the list. They may choose any quantity of each as long as the end total is six.
Too few or too many bottles will display this notice. Only when six bottles are selected will the Add to Cart button be activated and allow the action.
How do I set up a six-pack for beer? ↑ Back to top
The same steps above may be used as a guide.
Instructions on this page could also be used to offer a box of dozen donuts, a dozen roses, a special pack of 10 songs, or a lunch box with five items. You only need to change the minimum number of items and upload different products. Use your imagination!
