Kits

How Tos (3)

You can find this section under Products > Kits in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

You can use Kits to create Product Packages, incorporating multiple products into a single model. For example, a cycling kit could consist of a bicycle, helmet and water bottle.

Kit Types

There are two types of kits:

  • Standard Kits: These allow the choice of different stock options, e.g. various sizes and colours of a particular model or multiple models. For example, a Kit containing one bike choice from seven different frame sizes, a helmet choice from eight different colour and size combinations, and one water bottle choice. This allows you to offer different size and colour options or even different Stock Items as Kit Members.
  • Fixed Kits: There is no stock option choice in kit items. All are one size/colour options. For example, a kit containing one tent choice and one ground mat choice. Note that you do not need to create Kit Groups before creating Fixed Kits.

Standard Kit Structure

Kits (Group of Kit Groups) are composed of Kit Groups (Group of Kit Members), which are composed of Kit Members (Stock Options):

Before you can create a Standard Kit, you must create at least one Kit Group. Before you can create a Kit Group, you must create the various Stock Options (part of a Model) which will be set as Kit Members in the Kit Group. Only Kit Groups can be added to Kits so even if there is only one Stock Option, it must be added to its own individual Kit Group. In the example above there is only one selection for Water Bottle. This must first be added to its own Kit Group, before being added to the Kit.

After you have created the required Kit Groups, you can assign them to a Kit. Kit Groups can be set up so that they are required or not required. In this case the Member Cost will be added to, subtracted from the Kit Price.

See the How To Add or Edit a Kit Group article and the How To Add or Edit a Kit article in this section for further information.

Fixed Kit Structure

Fixed Kits consist of one or more set Kit Members (Stock Options):

They do not require the creation of Kit Groups and can be created as soon as the corresponding Model and Stock options have been added to your IRP.

Fixed Kits can be used to create set product packages, removing the customer selection element. Specific Kit Members are added to Fixed Kits. They are all required and cannot be removed, unlike items in Standard Kits.

When kit order items are dispatched, auto-dispatched, cancelled or returned the stock location levels for the constituent kit items are adjusted by the ordered quantity. This will prevent stock location level synchronisation errors. Fixed Kit order items are also excluded from all stock location level adjustments.

See the How To Add or Edit a Fixed Kit article in this section for further information.

Kits Confirmation Page

Note that there is an Application Setting called Enable Kits Confirmation Page (located in the grouping called 'Kits'). If you enable this setting, when a customer selects a kit and then further selects the items to include in the kit, after they click the 'Confirm Your Selection' button they will be directed to a kits confirmation page (KitsConfirm.aspx) where they will be invited to review their kit items and then either add the choices to their basket or return to the selection page. The Kits Confirmation Page therefore functions like a preview page which appears between the Kit model page and the customer's basket page. When this setting is disabled, the customer will go straight to their basket page after they click the 'Confirm Your Selection' button.

Allowing Purchase of Out of Stock Kits

It is possible to allow customers to purchase kits that are out of stock by enabling the Application Setting called 'Enable Purchase Of Out Of Stock Kits' (in the 'Checkout Process' grouping).

FAQs (10)

What is the Admin name?

What is the choice number?

What is meant by ‘Can choose if out of stock’?
This allows a customer to still choose part of the kit even though it is not in stock. It is up to you to arrange the delivery of this with the customer if you wish to deliver all of the order together when all items become in stock again, or send it separately.

What is meant by ‘Required Item’?
This is an item that must be purchased as part of the kit.

What determines the web stock value of a fixed kit?
The web stock value of a fixed kit is determined by the value of the lowest web stock value of the fixed kits components.

Can I make changes to stock details of a kit even if orders have already been placed for it?
You cannot make changes to the details if orders have already been placed for the kit, otherwise the changes would mess up previous orders. If you want to make changes, the best thing to do would be to create a new kit that includes the information you want to be offered to customers.
