Traditional bundles are naturally the easiest progression on from selling individual items that you may currently be selling on Amazon. If you are not aware, bundles are effectively just a multipack that is put together by the 3rd party seller. These can either be 2 or more of the same product or different product types sold together.
Why are bundles a good addition to your store?
Well, bundles are of course both a little more complexed to source and a little more time consuming to prep them. Don't let that put you off though, as this means that not all sellers are willing to go down this route, effectively providing a more stable price with greater margins.
The great thing about bundles, is they can literally be for anything! Tins of beans, bin liners, advent calendars, face creams!
Why not have a look through your store at the products you sell, then search to see if they are listed in multiples?
What is involved in creating them?
The process involves market research, sourcing the products, listing creation including image creation, SEO, keywording, PPC advertising and brand awareness. Bundles are without a doubt a more complexed direction to go down
What are the benefits of this type of bundling?
You created and own the listing under your own brand! People may try to copy, but they can’t jump on your listing!

High Ticket Items / Oversize Items
