What is kitting?

 

Kitting, also known as bundles, is a product built up of individual components that allows you account for the stock in the warehouse and for accounting purposes. It also allows you to sell the components individually, so your customers don’t have to buy the whole set.

 

For example, if you sell two dining room suites that have different dining tables but are sold with the same model of chair. You will need to sell the dining suit as a unit but display the individual items on the picking slip and account for the stock in your accounting software or Unleashed. This is where kitting comes in.

 

You can setup a product that, when purchased, will take the one table and six chairs out of stock and display the individual items on the picking slip so your warehouse team can pick the correct products for delivery.

 

Adding a new product with kitting

 

To add a product with kitting, go to:

Products > Add New Product

Select Product built from one or more other products

Enter the SKU, a Name and a price for the complete kit

Click continue

 

This video will focus on kitting. For more details on creating a product, check the other product video in the Neto 101 series.

 

Click on Kitting in the sub-menu.

Click on the Add Product button and click in the field in the SKU column.

You can now search for the SKU or product name for the kit components - the individual products that make up the kit.

 

In this example we will add a table and chairs. The quantity for the table will be one and we can leave the unit price. The quantity for the chairs will be six. You can use the Sort field to select what order the products are visible in. The highest number goes first and lowest last. If you want the table and chairs to be listed separately on the picking slip, tick Spilt for Warehouse Picking.

 

Save the changes to the product. You can preview the kitted product by hovering over Save and clicking on View on Website.

 

Let’s add this product to the shopping cart and you can see the two components. Since this kit is not editable, the customer can’t change the quantity of the components.

 

Now when a customer buys an dining room suite, one table and six chairs will be taken out of stock and if selected the individual items will be displaying on the picking slip.

 

Adding a new product with editable kitting

 

Let’s create another product but this time allow the customer to choose what goes in the kit. This is known as an editable kit. Like before we go to:

Products > Add New Product

Select Product built from one or more other products

Enter the SKU and Name

Go to the Kitting submenu

Tick the Editable Kit option

Add a kit component options

 

Use the quantity field for the initial quantity of the product. Set the minimum and maximum for each component - the minimum is the minimum quantity that can be ordered; the maximum can be blank if there is no maximum or enter a number if there is.

 

Let’s add a box of chocolates to this hamper with a quantity of one, minimum of one and maximum of five. Add some biscuits with a quantity of zero and minimum of zero and no maximum. Add a jar of jam with a quantity, minimum and maximum of one.

 

In this example, customers will be able to choose between one and five boxes of chocolates, any number of a packets of biscuits and they will not get a choice with the jar of jam.

 

Under Pricing & Tax, we need to enter the price of the kit. The initial price will be the cost of the products with an initial quantity. If there are no products with in initial quantity, the price would be zero. In this case we need to add the price for one box of chocolates and one jar of jam.

 

When the customer enters the quantities and adds to the shopping cart, the correct price is calculated.

 

Let’s save and preview the product. The product options are listed with their photos in a row. You can also have the list appear down the page - this depends on the website theme.

 

You can also group the products and limit how many products are bought from each group of products. Back on the product page, under Kitting, click on the pencil in the Group column to add a new group.

 

Enter an Internal Name for the group and set minimum to 2 and maximum to 10. You can also use the pricing from a different price group for all the products in this kitting group. Save the group.

 

If we set the biscuits to this group, customers will needs to order a minimum of two products from that group. They can order two boxes of chocolates or one box of each. Also, they can’t order more than 10 of the chocolates and biscuits combined.

 

Limitation when using kits

 

A limitation of the kitted products is you can’t have a kit within a kit. A component in a kitted product can’t be a kitted product.
