With grouped products, you can present multiple products on a single product detail page. Rather than offering a product more or less isolated from the rest of your catalog, you can present associated products together on one page, where each product becomes a separate cart item. Working with grouped products provides the following benefits:

  • Better, more practically-oriented structuring of your catalog data.
  • Easier detection of similar products when they are grouped, hence more sales.
  • More sales when customers see useful, required or desirable products on the same page.

When you associate a simple product to a grouped product, you can specify whether the simple product is individually visible (or just visible on the grouped product page). A product that is not individually visible does not appear in search results or in product lists of categories.

Usage scenario

Imagine you want to sell a video game console. If someone is interested in buying one, he may also be interested in buying:

  • One or multiple games
  • A wireless controller
  • A wireless headset
  • A USB charge cable
