📦 Bundles explained - How to create and setup bundles
A bundle is a product whose inventory is dependent on some other product or a group of products (called as components in Sumtracker). This page shows how to setup your bundles with examples. Let's say you are selling Coffee Mugs in packs of 2, 4, and 6. The inventory of these packs is dependent on the number of singe Coffee mugs.
So if you have 100 Individual Coffee Mugs, you can sell at most
- 50 Packs of 2
- 25 Packs of 4
- 16 Packs of 6
Once you define the bundles and their components in Sumtracker, the inventory of bundles will always be updated by Sumtracker on your stores.

Examples of bundles
Example - Bundle having multiple components
Here, the bundle that we are selling is called Indoor Plants Set of 2. It contains 2 components.
Sumtracker will calculate the bundle's inventory based on the available inventory of the components. In this case we have 69 possible stock of the bundle.
If you get any orders of this bundle, the respective quantities of the components will be reduced.
If you get any orders of the components directly or through other bundles, Sumtracker will re-calculate how many bundles you can fulfill and update on your store.
