Composite Products

Composite products are for designing more complicated items that are comprised of several elements.

A common example of a composite product would be a meal deal. This product will have a meal item, a side and a drink. The customer will have several choices for each element. First we need to build a meal item option group, a side option group and a drink option group. Then we need to link them together in a composite product.

  1. Navigate to Catalogue > Composite Option Groups

9. Name your composite product and select a category. The External Description can be added if you want to display an explanation of the composite product for the customer. For example "Please choose your meal, side and drink". Set the price. This will override the cumulative totals of the individual items. The price set here will be the total that will be charged for this composite product.
