    Dynamic Bundles

    Dynamic bundles allow your shoppers to choose their own options in a bundle. For example, you can enable a shopper to select 0 or more product options from a list of 10, giving your shoppers greater flexibility when selecting products in your store front. When minimum is 0, it means that component product lists are optional for your shoppers. For example, when purchasing a monitor, you might want to offer additional optional items that a shopper can select like monitor lamps, extendable arms, or screen wipes.

    You can do this by configuring minimum and/or maximum values for the number of product options in a component that your shoppers can select. For example, you can offer a promotion where you sell 4 books for a single price and your customers can select 4 books from a list of 10. When you create the bundle, add all ten products to the bundle and specify that the minimum selection required is 4, and the maximum selection allowed is 4.

    Your shoppers cannot change the quantities of a product. They must purchase the quantity of products that you have specified when you created your components and options.

    If you do not specify any minimum or maximum values for the product options in your components, your shoppers can select any combination of product options.

    Bundles have a bundle_configuration which describe the options selected. Once your bundles are published in a catalog, a shopper can select the products they want. You can use Get a product in a catalog release to check a bundle_configuration. You can use the configure a shopper bundle endpoint to store a shopper's selections. The response from the configure a shopper bundle endpoint updates the bundle_configuration with the product options a shopper selects. In your storefront, you can display this as a summary of the product options a shopper has selected.
