Magento Products: Grouped Products Posting

Overview

Grouped Product on Magento is a bundle of similar or related products displayed on a Magento single page. Magento tutorial gives the following two examples of such a product:
  • If you’re selling chef’s knives and you have a set of knives in four sizes and styles, you can make a grouped product to display all four sizes. Customers can select the size(s) they want and add to cart from this page.”
  •  “Another example would be a themed bedroom set – you can create a grouped product and sell the sheets, comforter, and pillow cases all from the same page.”
Sellercloud allows you to use Kits for posting Grouped Products on Magento. In contrast to other channels, on Magento, the user can purchase either the whole Grouped Product, or its individual component(s) only.
