How do I set up grouped products in Magento?

Setting up grouped products in Magento allows you to create a collection of related products that are displayed together on the same product page. This is useful for offering product bundles or collections where customers can choose to buy one or more items from the group.

Steps to Set Up Grouped Products

  1. Log in to the Magento Admin Panel:

    • Open your web browser and navigate to the URL of your Magento admin panel.
    • Enter your admin username and password, then click on "Sign in."
  2. Navigate to the Products Section:

    • In the left sidebar, go to Catalog > Products.
  3. Add a New Product:

    • Click on the Add Product button at the top right corner.
    • Select Grouped Product from the dropdown menu.
  4. Configure the Basic Product Details:

    • Product Name: Enter the name of the grouped product.
    • SKU: Enter a unique SKU for the grouped product.
    • Price: Leave this field blank because prices will be defined by the individual products in the group.
    • Quantity: You do not need to enter a quantity for the grouped product itself.
    • Visibility: Set to "Catalog, Search" to make the product visible on your store.
    • Tax Class: Select the appropriate tax class.
  5. Configure Grouped Product Items:

    • Scroll down to the Grouped Products section and click on Add Products to Group.

    • Click on Add Selected Products to add them to the group.
  6. Set the Quantity for Each Item:

    • For each product in the group, you can set a default quantity that will be added to the cart when a customer purchases the grouped product. This quantity can be adjusted by the customer on the product page.
  7. Complete the Grouped Product:

    • Add any additional information in the Product Details section, such as description, meta information, etc.
    • Configure advanced settings like weight, dimensions, etc., if needed.
  8. Save the Grouped Product:

    • Once all details are entered, click the Save button at the top right corner.
