Bundling is basically taking a product you sell and offering it along with another product (this could be an accessory or simply a related item) thereby creating a product bundle.
How to create a bundle?
Go to online admin page. Will see BUNDLES navigation link click on it. A Bundle panel is opened (like this).
To add new bundle click on "Add bundle" button. Will see bundle form.
Each row is a product which is selected with two drop-downs: Categories and Products. When chose a product, you can specify discount (in %) from 0 to 100.
A new price for this product will be calculated base on the discount. Or can type a new price and discount will be calculated.
Notice: this new price will be available only in this bundle and will not effect when buy this product out of the bundle.
In the beginning of the row is a radio button - Primary item. In order to successfully save a bundle only first item must be primary.
When bundle is saved will see it in bundle table below. Each bundle can be deleted, published/unpublished and edited.
Third column is PRIMARY ITEM and it contains the name of the primary item in the bundle with link to front detail page of the item.
