QuickBooks Online has an item type called bundled items, which are kits. A bundled item will remove its sub items from inventory and calculate the COGS per item. Bundles have drawbacks, which include overriding the pricing.
Bundled items have no price. How does Cloud Cart calculate the price?
Cloud Cart Connector rarely receives the sub items of a bundle and it receives the bundle SKU and a price. Since Cloud Cart cannot determine the price of the sub items, the price of a bundle is the sum of its items.
The bundled item price exceeds the price of the sale. Does Cloud Cart add a discount?
Cloud Cart will add a discount at the bottom of the sale to balance it.
No item in the bundle has a price. How does Cloud Cart apply the price?
Cloud Cart will add the item price to the first item in the bundle. The bundle's price will match the sale.
Is the discount tax inclusive?
For U.S. customers, the discount is taxable. For customers charging VAT, the discount is out of scope. Making a discount tax inclusive can cause the order total to be incorrect.
How does the discount appear?
You will see a line item called orderdiscount. Here is an example.
How do I change the price of sub items in the bundle?
You can change the price of the items in the products and services list:
- Log into QuickBooks.
- Click the gear.
- Click products and services.
- Find the products inside the bundle.
- Double click the row.
- Change the unit price.
Ideally, you should sell your bundled item for the same price as your store. If your bundle is $19.99 and your store sells it for $14.99, Cloud Cart will add a $5 discount to the sale.
