      PRODUCT BUNDLES AS A SINGLE CUSTOM PRODUCT

      Creating a product bundle as a custom product is very similar to creating a standard custom product, in fact, you will follow the same instructions which can be found under ‘Creating Custom Products’. However, we do have some tips unique to creating bundles:

      Using the MailChimp Pop-up

      This documentation was modified on 01/18/2018, to comply with the latest changes by MailChimp.

      MailChimp offers a pop-up sign up form feature for collecting email addresses from visitors when they land on any page on your website. The visitor has the option of either entering their email address or closing the pop-up and not seeing it again. If they enter their email address, it is automatically inserted into your Mailchimp mailing list.

      This documentation was modified on 01/18/2018, to comply with the latest changes by MailChimp.

      This provides an integration with MailChimp (an email delivery service) and makes it possible to create and send MailChimp emails directly from your website.

      Utilizing the Stock module

      The ‘Stock’ module provides a basic stock tracking system for custom products. Store admins can set the stock level and a threshold for each product SKU. When the stock has decremented to the threshold value an email can be sent to the store admin. When the stock is depleted, the ‘Add to Cart’ button will be replaced with an ‘Out of Stock’ button. The stock count will be decremented as customers make purchases.

      Using Conditional Attributes

      Here is one example of how this feature might work on your website. A customer buys a custom product and would like to give it as a gift and include a gift message. On the custom product page, the customer is asked: "Is this a gift". If they select "Yes", a message dialog box would open for the customer to enter their gift message. If they don't select "Yes", the message dialog box would remain closed.

      Custom Checkout Messages

      If you wish to display a special message to your customers at the end of checkout, a special message pertaining to their order, you may do so using ‘Rules’.

      Example scenarios where a custom checkout message could be used:

      Google+
