Dear friends!

We would like to announce the release of a very useful add-on for all CS-Cart users - the Product packages add-on!

CS-Cart “Product packages” add-on allows the administrator to create a bundle of different products that will be sold as a separate product.

It is a very convenient tool because it allows you
  • to sell off products quickly
  • to create attractive product bundles to meet certain customer requirements or timed to a certain event
  • to group the products that compliment each other
This add-on has lots of features:
  • Ability to create a new product as a product package and add products to this package.
  • A product package has all features of a standard product – name, description, options, meta data, seo url, etc. except price and in stock info. Package price and In stock depend on the price and stock of the products included in a package.
  • Total package price is calculated automatically depending on the prices of products included in a package. Also, it is possible to set discounts on products included in a package and the final package price will be calculated automatically based on set discounts.
  • In the storefront on the package details page customers can buy the whole package only, they can't exclude products from the package.
  • In the storefront on the package details page customers see what products are included in a package. By clicking on the product title, a customer can go to a product details page of every product included in a package and buy this product separately.
  • If a product included in a package has options, customer can choose a necessary option.
  • If a product included in a package gets Out-of-stock, the whole package gets automatically Out-of-stock.
  • The package name and the products included in a package are displayed on the Cart contents page, in the invoice, on the order details page.
More features, documentation and demo are available here http://www.alt-team....ges-add-on.html

We offer the best price for the Product packages add-on - $79.

The add-on is compatible with CS-Cart Professional 3.0.x.
We can redo the add-on for CS-Cart 2.2.x for some extra charge.

Feel free to ask any questions.

Best regards, Alt-team

i have just had a play with this is functions nearly exactly what i need. The only change is by default the options for the product itself are disabled.

I would need that you can use the same options as the sub products on the main product itself.

Eg i make a "box" that costs $65. I then add all the items that i want in that box with the default value of "by fixed amount = 0"
That way the box would cost the price that i set on its product page($65) and when they bought it all the items would be added to their cart. i see this is leveraging the buy together addon but in a much cleaner way. I am currently using the buy together option to achieve this but believe this is the perfect way to do it

if the change could be made to do what i need i would buy it straight away. I have bought 3 addons from you already so i know your work is great and this ticks 95% of the boxes i need to be able to implement it.

This is one of the product presentation methods I was hoping to achieve with this addon:

I need to sell Gourmet Coffee Beans in multiple package sizes all from one single "Gourmet Coffee Beans" product listing page, for example:

Gourmet Coffee Beans
Fresh roasted, ultimate flavor, purchase in various package sizes

Choose Option: (Red Beans, Green Beans)

1 Lb Bag, Price $5.00 (Enter Quantity) "Add to Cart"
10 Lb Box, Price $10.00 (Enter Quantity) "Add to Cart"
50 Lb Box, Price $50.00 (Enter Quantity) "Add to Cart"
100 Lb Box, Price $75.00 (Enter Quantity) "Add to Cart"

From the demo I am unable to simulate this type of presentation scenario, is it possible with this addon?

Thanks

Hello Confusion!

Please, could you let us know what Fractional orders add-on you mean? Unfortunately, we can't guarantee the correct work of our add-ons with any third-party add-ons. But our add-ons are compatible with the standard CS-Cart functionality.

i have just had a play with this is functions nearly exactly what i need. The only change is by default the options for the product itself are disabled.

I would need that you can use the same options as the sub products on the main product itself.

Eg i make a "box" that costs $65. I then add all the items that i want in that box with the default value of "by fixed amount = 0"

if the change could be made to do what i need i would buy it straight away. I have bought 3 addons from you already so i know your work is great and this ticks 95% of the boxes i need to be able to implement it.


Dear Confusion,
You can add options to the whole package and they will work correctly. But if products included in a package have options, you can't hide them. This is how the add-on works.

As for the total package price, the logic of the add-on is as follows:
  • you can't set a package price at once because the total package price is calculated based on the prices of products included in a package;
  • you can set a total package discount or discount on every product included in a package. The final package price is calculated based on the discounted prices.
At our demo site you can see exactly how the add-on works. We can make this add-on perform as you wish but, unfortunately, for the extra charge only.

Thank you for your questions!

Dear Struck,
Unfortunately, you are writing about different functionality. The Product packages add-on allows customers to buy the whole package only, it doesn't allow to buy products included in a package separately from the package details page.

I purchased this today, will report back once I have it installed.


Thaks a lot, jhagg! We would get back to you asap, if any problems occur.

Hi alt team i am talking about your addon here
http://www.alt-team....tity.html?sl=EN

Is it possible to get the function i am talking about added? For my customer who is a grocery store they want to have a set price for a group of items, not a percentage off each.
The only change that would be needed is that on the main product itself you could have the value of by the fixed amount or to the fixed amount

eg The box is $65
The box includes items A, B, C, D, E
All these items have the value of "by the fixed amount = 0"

Therefore the the user adds to their cart the box of $65 and they automatically get all those items added to their cart.
Each week the items in the box would vary slight but the price of the box needs to remain the same $65

I am sure it would only be a small change. Is it something you could think about adding in a future release?

You can see in the picture how i am achieving this with the buy together add on that comes in CS cart. Your addon is much cleaner and produces the effect i want much better though.

I actually had Alt-Team develop this addon for one my clients, before that I had MacGyvered the standard product configurator and setup some crazy promotions to achieve all the needed discounts. This makes it soooo much better :D

You can see it in action here:

Hello Confusion and thank you for the provided details!

To tell the truth, the Product packages add-on is not supposed to work with the Fractional product quantity modification. And it will be rather difficult to make them compatible. it will be necessary to make some changes from scratch.

As for the changes regarding total package price. It seems easy but, unfortunately, it is not actually so. We can make necessary changes within our custom development service only. Sorry about that. As you probably know, we always try to improve our products and include features requested by our clients but here it will be necessary to change some add-on logic, it is time-consuming, that's why we can't promise to do it for free. Thank you for the understanding.

Will you make it multi-vendor compatible in the near future? Thanks


Hello Belzibot!

Unfortunately for the present moment we can make this add-on compatible with Multi-Vendor for an extra charge only. Or we can do it for free if several people will be interested in purchasing this add-on for Multi-Vendor.

very good addon works perfectly Thank you Alt-team Ilias

Hello rmsilver7! We are glad that this add-on is a good contribution to your client's store.
And thank you for the examples of a live shop. Great demonstration of our module!

Hello everyone!

We have fixed a bug in the Product packages add-on that was noticed by one of our clients.

After the add-on installation the Quantity field disappeared for products available in a store.
Now this is fixed and everything is working properly.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Everybody, who has already purchased the add-on, can download the fixed version from the order details page. Thank you!

Best regards, Alt-team

This is not working for me. I create a combination and save it, but no price appears on the storefront. Then when I go back to the "Package Configuration" tab, it just says, "No data found." Please advise.

I am having a different problem, it is calculating the discount versus MSRP in a crazy fashion. (image) Also need a way to eliminate the thumbnails of all the included products and also way to change where the included products are displayed and how. Stacking them all up top is pretty messy looking. I have faith they will work out the bugs I have also raised a support ticket hopefully it is addressed soon.

OK well I have a partial solution to my problem. Apparently this package addon is not compatible with the "Buy Together" add-on, so the latter has to be disabled for it to work. I disabled Buy Together and now it kind of half works. But it keeps repeating the offer down the page several times and one of those times the price is calculated wrongly.
