What are the Pre-Defined Products?
Manage products, which do not require much of personalization. Most of these products are ready to sell. Examples of such products are business card holder, banner stand, bag packs, and pen stands, etc.
On the Admin Panel, at a glance, you can check the list of all predefined products with their size variants, stock available and the customer type i.e. to whom the product is made available.
While creating a pre-defined product, Admin will get three options namely –
- Yes – This will create a Kit Product.
- Buy With Kit Only – The predefined product created can be bought when in the kit. (They will not be displayed at the product listing page.)
- No – Create a predefined product as the regular process (can later be added in the kit if required)

Add a Pre-Defined Product
To add a new predefined product, click on the ‘Add’ button (top right corner). Fill in the details as explained in the Product Configuration section and click on the Save & Continue button.
In the Kit Product dropdown, choose No or Buy with Kit Only.
No – This will define that the product is not a Kit and rather it is a Pre-defined Product, which can be later added into a Kit (if required).
Buy with Kit Only – This states that the product created is a pre-defined product that cannot be bought separately. The purchase of this product can only be made if this product is added in a Kit, i.e. it can be bought only when the product is added into a Kit.
The rest of the configuration of the pre-defined products works the same as the addition of a normal product. Please refer to the Add Product section for more guidance.
How to create a Kit?
A Kit is a set of articles used for a specific purpose. A kit can be a school kit, college kits, office kits, etc. This will help customers to order bulk products using a kit instead of ordering separate products. Kits have been major attractions for businesses and schools, as it contains a pack of products. Kits are more informative and versatile. Thus, add Kits into your web store and explore how they are important from - https://www.flottmanco.com/importance-media-kit/
Instead of a separate entity, the Kit Product will now be considered as a predefined Product. This will help the Admins manage the sort order of the product without any hassle. Along with this other database, handling benefits come in handy.
With this section, add related products for a particular product. Adding related products will increase the chance of upselling and cross-selling on your storefront.
