A WooCommerce bundle discount is one strategy for clearing slow-selling items, rewarding loyal customers, and increasing sales of particular products.

You can provide discounts when customers buy more of a specific product or buy product bundles. This helps customers to purchase more in less-price deals and increase your sales & revenue.

Since this feature is not available in default settings, you can use the “Discount Rules for WooCommerce -Pro,” a discount plugin, to offer products with bundle discounts.

In this blog, let’s discuss in detail about bundle discounts, examples, and steps to create bundle discounts in WooCommerce.

What is a WooCommerce bundle discount?

WooCommerce bundle discount is a promotional strategy in which store owners offer a discount when customers buy products in bundles. It helps increase order value and sales.

For example, Buy 3 at 10% off, Buy 5 for $50, and more.

Create bundle discounts in WooCommerce using the Discount Rules Pro plugin and increase your sales.

Why are bundle discounts effective for WooCommerce stores?

Here are some reasons why to use a WooCommerce bundle discount:

  • Since customers love a product bundle deal, the sales will increase along with order value.
  • Even though the product prices are reduced, this will ultimately result in high sales and more visibility for all products.
  • By combining slow-selling items with best-sellers, you can increase sales of particular items.
  • If a simple discount can attract customers, WooCommerce product bundle discounts are more powerful to grab customers’ attention.
  • Compared to other marketing strategies, bundle WooCommerce discounts are a cost-effective strategy to grow your store to the next level.

How to Create a WooCommerce Bundle Discount?

Creating a WooCommerce bundle discount starts with installing the “Discount Rules for WooCommerce -Pro” plugin. Follow the instructions in this installation guide to install and activate it on your WordPress dashboard.

After installing the plugin, go to “WooCommerce” and open “Discount Rules.” Add a new rule to create your bundle offer campaigns.

Let’s check a few scenarios to understand different ways to create WooCommerce bundle discounts.

Adding a new discount rule campaign

Scenario 1: Buy 4 for $20 (Same/ Different products)

Example: customers can buy 4 of the same or different products for $20, but the minimum quantity of items should be 4.

  • Add a new rule and enter the campaign name.
  • Select the discount type as “Bundle(set) discount.”
  • In the filter section, choose “All products” as it is a store-wide discount.
  • In the discount section,
    • Set Count by as “Filters set above.” It counts the items cumulatively.
    • Enter quantity as “4” with discount type as “fixed price for set/ bundle” with value “20.”
  • Save the rule.

Example: Buy 3 from Category A & B for $50 and Use Coupon Code “SALE.”

  • Choose the discount type as “Bundle (set) Discount.”
  • In the filter section, filter specific categories. Here, I choose “Accessories” and “Hoodies.”
  • In the discount section, set “Count by” as “Filters set above” to count the items cumulatively.
    • Enter quantity as “3” with discount type as “fixed price for set/ bundle” with value “50.”
  • In the rules section, select “Condition Type” as “Coupons” and create your coupon code. I used” SALE” here. Save the rule.

Bundle discounts based on specific products

Scenario 4: Buy 2 Combination of Listed Products for $20

You can create WooCommerce bundle discounts for variable products (or) product bundles by setting product combinations.

  • In the filter section, Choose “Products” and select specific products here. (variable products)
  • In the discount section, set quantities and discounts.
  • In the rules section, choose “Condition type” as “Product Combination” and set “Combination Type” as “Combine.”
    • Select the combinational product with comparison and quantity.
Creating Discounts based on product combinations

When the selected product combination is added to the cart, the WooCommerce product bundle discounts will be applied.

Applying discounts on combination products

By using the “Discount Rules” plugin, you can provide WooCommerce product bundle discounts in three ways:

  • A fixed price for set/bundle – This applies a fixed price on all products as a bundle.
  • Percentage discount per item – This applies a percentage discount on each product on the bundle.
  • Fixed discount per item – This applied a fixed discount on each product on the bundle.

You can take these scenarios as an example to create unique bundle discount deals for your WooCommerce store. You can also apply different discount ways to attract customers.

How to prioritize bundle discounts among multiple campaigns?

You can prioritize the WooCommerce product bundle discount campaigns based on which campaign to activate first.

In general, the rules will work as per the priority number when different rules are set for different products/categories/attributes.

If the different discount rules are set for the same product/category/attributes then the below three options come into the picture,

  • Apply first matched rule
  • Apply all matched rules
  • Apply the biggest discount

Let me make it clear with an example – You have 2 discount rules for the same product

Rule 1: 20% discount on products from category A when the subtotal is over $500. This rule works only when the cart total is $500 and above.

Rule 2: 30% discount on purchasing 6 quantities of products from category A.

  • Apply first matched rule – The discount will be applied based on which rule is set with “first priority.”
  • Apply all matched rules – Priority will not be checked here; the rules will be applied accordingly.
  • Apply the biggest discount – Priority is rarely considered; the rule providing the biggest discount will be applied.
