What are Bundles?


Bundles are a secondary method you can use to protect content. They can either be free or paid and just like membership levels, they can have multiple products associated with them. Unlike membership levels you can have an unlimited number of bundles applied to a member's account.


How to Use Bundles


Using bundles gives you flexibility in how you market and sell your content. For example, say you have a membership site with video training content. Members who sign up for the basic membership will get access to 20 videos. Later, you would like to offer a more specialized course that includes 10 more videos for an additional cost. What you could do is create a bundle to protect these 10 videos and only members who purchase that bundle can see them. Now you can associate the bundle with a product and offer it as an upsell anywhere on your site. Any member that purchases it will get immediate access to the content.


Managing Bundles


In the MemberMouse menu go to Product Settings and click on the Bundles tab.

The screen shot below is an example of what the bundles tab will look like. Here you will see all of your bundles, each of their settings, and attributes, including:  status, type, number of subscribers to each bundle, associated products and purchase links. The bundles tab is where you will create and delete bundles as well as edit existing ones.

Consult the Bundles Options table below to learn more details on each option.

 



Bundle Options


Name/Subscribers

This column shows name of each bundle, and the number of members who are currently subscribed to each bundle.

Type The Type indicates whether the bundle is free or paid.

Free Members are not billed for this bundle.

Paid Members pay for products for this bundle.
Products

This is where you can see the products that are associated with each bundle. As you create bundles you will link them with products, consequently when a customer buys a product they will be given access to the associated bundle. Learn more in the Products Overview article. 
Purchase Links

The Purchase Links icon will prompt a dialog box to pop up and give you access to a Purchase Link SmartTag and a Static Link for that particular bundle. When the customer clicks on these links they will be taken to the checkout page where they can purchase this bundle. Sometimes there are multiple products associated with a bundle in order to offer different pricing. In that case, you will first be prompted to select the product you want to generate a link for.




Status The color indicates whether the membership level is active or inactive.

(Green) Active - Customers can sign up for this membership level.

 (Red) Inactive - Customers cannot currently sign up for this level.
Actions The icons under this column allow you to edit or delete a bundle.
