Update #1 – Pre-Filled Boxes
Now you can add default products to your custom product box! These items are presented to a customer as a part of the bundle before they start adding their own choices, and can either be set as mandatory or removable as per requirement. This feature can be used to create product boxes that have a base price as the total of mandatory products present inside, to which customers can add their own assortment of items.
All you’d need to do in enable the Pre-Filled Box checkbox and select the items that you want to assign as default to the bundle. Neat!
Update #2 – ‘Removable’ Mandatory Products
Reading about pre-filled mandatory products in a product bundle, one might want to ask “What if my mandatory product is out of stock and not available for purchase?”. Don’t worry, CPB has got you covered.
When you check the box that says Remove Mandatory Products, CPB is quick to analyze your inventory to check whether a mandatory product is out of stock. And if that happens to be the case, a user can easily remove the item in question form his bundle and replace it with any other poduct of choice. Dynamic inventory analysis is in the house!

This one’s for your customers! It’s annoying to have to scroll to the top of the page again and again to view your product bundle and it’s contents, especially when you have a lost list of inventory that can be added to the product box. With Scroll Lock enabled, the product box sticky to the page so matter where you scroll, the contents of your assorted bundle will always be visible to you.
