Zenoti allows you to combine one or more products with varying quantities and create a kit that you can sell as a single product.
For example, you can combine 2 bottles of Lavender Hair Oil, 2 bottles of Rose Hair Serum, and 1 bottle of Green Tea Shampoo as one product kit and sell it to your guests.
How do product kits help your business?
Your business can experience the following benefits using the product kits:
- Get rid of the dead stock by combining it with one of the popular products and selling them to your guests.
- Increase your sales by combining newly launched products and encourage your guests to try them (which they might ignore otherwise).
You can sell such product kits on special occasions such as Mother’s day, Valentine’s day, center’s service anniversary, or during any discount campaigns at your center.
Product Bundles in Zenoti
To create a product bundle in Zenoti:
- Create a retail product with a product kit name (as you would create any product) and specify details such as the centers where the kit must be available, price, and availability in Webstore.
For example, let’s say you wish to offer a Valentine's day kit to your guests. Therefore, you must first create a retail product with the name Valentines Day Kit.
Associate the desired number of retail products and quantities with the kit using Setup Product Kit.
For example, let’s say the Valentine's Day Kit you have created in step-1, must have 1 Olive Oil Body Scrub, 1 Green Tea Body Wash, and 1 Peach Body Butter bundled together.
Now, you must associate these products and quantities with the Valentine's Day Kit product kit using Setup Product Kit.
Note: You cannot add Consumable Product to a kit.
- Update stock in Inventory (at the center level) for the kits through Purchase Orders, Transfer Orders, or by bundling the existing stock.
Actions you can perform on product bundles in Inventory
After you create the product kits, you can perform the following actions just like you would perform for any other product:
- Sell the product kits through POS.
- Raise purchase orders and transfer orders to procure the product kits.
When you order a product kit through purchase order or transfer order, your vendor supplies the kits directly.
Example: Let us say that you have 2 Anti-Aging cream and 2 Body Butter boxes combined as Mother’s Day product kit.
You realise that you are short of 5 Mother’s Day product kits. Therefore, you raise a purchase order to procure them from your vendor.
Your vendor will deliver a total of 20 products (10 Anti-Aging and 10 Body Butter boxes) to your store.
Now that you have the products in your store, you can start bundling the products to create the Mother’s Day product kits.
- Audit and reconcile the product kits.
- Checkout the product kits from store to floor or vice versa.
- Unbundle the existing product kits.
Bundling the products on your store or floor
You can bundle the products in your store or floor to sell them as product kits to your guests.
Example: Let us say that Valentine’s Day is approaching and you have 15 Mango Face scrubs and 10 Coffee Face Packs that are slow moving stock in your store.
You want to sell these products, so that you can bring fresh stock. Therefore, you create 10 Valentine’s Day product kits by combining 1 Mango Face scrub and 1 Coffee Face Pack in each kit. You also offer discount on these product kits for easy and quick sales.
Now, you can sell these product kits to your guests through POS as part of Valentine's Day special sale.
How does bundling impact current stock?
Bundling impacts the current stock quantity of store or floor, based on where you select the products from.
If you bundle the products that are existing in store, the current stock quantity (in store) of the individual product decreases and the quantity of the product kit increases. The same applies to the products existing in floor.
Consider the store example mentioned in the section Bundling the products on your store or floor.
Following are the stock quantities before bundling the products:
- Mango Face scrub = 15
- Coffee Face Pack = 10
- Valentine’s Day product bundle = 0
Following are the stock quantities after bundling the products:
- Mango Face scrub = 5
- Coffee Face Pack = 0
- Valentine’s Day product bundle = 10
Unbundling the products on your store or floor
You can unbundle the products bundles in your store or floor and sell them as individual retail products to your guests.
Example: You have 5 Valentine’s Day product kits on floor with 1 Mango Face scrub and 1 Coffee Face Pack as products in the kit.
A guest wants to purchase a Mango Face Scrub, but you do not have it as an individual retail product on your store or floor. To make your guest happy, you decide to unbundle one of the Valentine’s Day product kits.
After you unbundle it, you will now have 1 Mango Face scrub and 1 Coffee Face Pack as individual products on floor. You can then sell it to your guest.
How does unbundling impact the current stock?
Unbundling impacts the current stock quantity of store or floor, based on where you select the products from.
If you unbundle the products in store, the current stock quantity (in store) of the individual product increases and the quantity of the product kit decreases. The same applies to the products existing in floor.
Consider the floor example mentioned in the section Unbundling the Products on your Store or Floor.
Following are the stock quantities before unbundling the products:
- Mango Face scrub = 0
- Coffee Face Pack = 0
- Valentine’s Day product bundle = 5
Following are the stock quantities after unbundling the products:
- Mango Face scrub = 1
- Coffee Face Pack = 1
- Valentine’s Day product bundle = 4
Tips to consider while creating product kits
- Bundle the high profit margin products and low profit margin products together so that you can give better discounts to your guests.
- Refer the Top Sellers - Sales Report in Admin and observe the products that your guests are purchasing together. Create kits for those products.
- Apply discounts on bundles and make sure that the actual price of each product in the bundle is visible. This makes your guest perceive that they are buying the kit at best price.
- Identify the products that go together naturally and bundle them for cross-selling. For example, you can create a bundle for Tea Tree Hair Oil and Tea Tree Shampoo.
- Do not keep the size and price of the kit too high, as guest may not purchase it.
- Check the inventory stock levels before bundling to avoid sudden low stock levels.
