A bundle is a “build your own,” customizable product. Each item in a bundle can be based on one of the following product types:
The selection of options appears when the customer taps either the Customize and Add to Cart button. Because the products that are included in the bundle vary, the SKU, Price, and Weight can be set to either a dynamic or fixed value.
Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) is not available for Bundle products with dynamic pricing.
If Instant Purchase is available, the Instant Purchase button appears below the Add to Cart button for each item in the bundle.
The following instructions take you through the process of creating a bundle product using a product template, required fields, and basic settings. Each required field is marked with a red asterisk (*). When you finish the basics, you can complete the advanced settings and other settings as needed.

After the items appear in the Options section choose one to be the Default selection.
In the Default Quantity column, enter the quantity of each item that is to be added to the bundle when a customer chooses the item.

The quantity can be a preset or user-defined value. However, do not assign the User Defined property to checkbox or multiple-select input types.
By default, the Default Quantity that is included in a bundle item cannot be changed by the customer. However, the customer can enter the quantity of the item that is to be included in the bundle.
For example, if the Default Quantity of the Sprite Status Ball is set to 2, and the customer orders 4 of that bundle option, the total number of total balls purchased is 8.
Repeat these steps for each item you want to add to the bundle.
