If you have a product you sell that always includes other products with it, product bundles are an easy way to ensure those inventory levels stay accurate. This guide shows you how to set them up within the ShippingEasy Inventory Management Tool.

Step by Step Walkthrough
There are 2 ways to set up bundles in the ShippingEasy Inventory tool.
- Individually create each bundle within the ShippingEasy platform.
- Bulk uploading multiple bundles via a csv file.
Creating Bundles Within ShippingEasy
Navigate to your product catalog by hovering over “Inventory” on the blue bar over the top, and selecting “Product Catalog”:
Click on the name or SKU of the product you want to bundle and click the “Edit” button in the top right:
Flip the switch at the top that says “This is a Bundled Product” to “On”:
Then scroll down to the bundled product section at the bottom and enter the names or SKUs you wish to bundle with this product into the empty field:
When you add the product, it gets added to the bundle list, and you need to adjust the quantity included in the bundle, which is basically the question “how many of this SKU is included when one of the main SKU is purchased:
Click save at the bottom when all products and quantities have been added to the bundle:
Bulk uploading bundles via a CSV file
If you want to create multiple bundles at once, you can always upload a CSV of your products and include bundled products within. To do this, all you need is a spreadsheet with a minimum of 2 columns, but we recommend 3 for clarity. The three columns are “Product Name”, “SKU”, and “Bundled Skus”:
Make sure if you bundle multiple SKUs that the format is as follows in your SKU column:
(SKU: Qty | SKU: Qty)
Then simply fill out these three columns for every product you want to update. You can also download your product catalog into a CSV and update that:
If you do that, however, be sure to remove any columns with information you are not updating, as this can make unwanted changes to your product catalog.
Once you have your CSV file, navigate back to the product catalog page and select “Upload from CSV” from the “Add Products” drop-down:
On this page, click “Browse” to navigate to your CSV file, then click the “Upload Products” button.
This takes you to the column mapping step. Just select the column in the drop-down on the left that matches the information on the right:
After you click continue at the bottom, the upload will be processed. Click the green “Ready” button when it appears:
This takes you to the final step where you look over the information before completing the upload and correct any errors. Click the “Complete Upload” button to finalize the upload:
