Support for Bundled Products / Update Inventory for Bundles
We have a few websites that sell products to wholesalers. For example we will sell a case of a single SKU. Each case has 12 units. It would be nice if SS could allow us to setup virtual bundles that deducted multiple units of a single SKU.

agreed I think that this would be a great idea. It is a shame that it was planned in May, 2019 but not yet executed
I had this need and couldn't wait. Tried "Connected Inventory" app for $10/mo with 7 day trial. It is super easy for kits and bundles and items that sell by a single item, multiple packs and cases as well to manage inventory. I'm VERY happy with it. It took care of all the needs for my particular situation.

We have a similar need - We use Amazon Virtual Bundles, which allows one SKU to reference several individual skus at the time of fulfillment.
Multichannel Fulfillment by Amazon doesn't support receiving these SKUs so we need to be able to have an order placed on our WooCommerce or Ebay stores for one SKU, but have ShipStation send the individual SKUs in the bundle for Fulfillment by Amazon.

This feature would be of great benefit to us. We sell a sample set of our products. This sample set contains one each of 9 of our most popular products. Right now we have to manually update our inventory for each of the 9 items.

It will be great if SS would have option to automatically combine SKU in system. When you have 2 SKU ( SKU-01 and SKU-02 ) this should be SKU-03, SS should, and not "Multiple" even should add Name of products and not name it "Multiple" and also calculate W L H and OZ for this combined products
This can help a lot if somebody has different campaigns on his system , Coupons , Product + Spare part, or similar
I second Rodrigo Merino Pepper and Cute comment. Adding that feature will allow us to group orders that contain the same items, which are just grouped differently, for fulfilment to be done more efficiently, as well as keeping a more accurate inventory.
What is the point of us upvoting and requesting if nothing is done for years!? You are just pushing people away from your platform. We are looking for efficiency and cost/time reduccion and a simple feature is holding us back.

I want to have SKU's that are composed of children SKU's so when the parent SKU is sold, the inventory of all the children SKU's is reduced. This is not the Parent/Variants functionality or the aliases.
A real example would be:
I have SKU1, SKU2, SKU3. I want to create a pack for my customers with a special price including SKU1+SKU2+SKU3. I create that pack and assign SKU4 to it.
When I sell a SKU4, I want the inventory of SKU1, SKU2 and SKU3 to be reduced in one unit.
I hope that clarifies the scenario I want to implement.
Bundles/kit is a big flaw in ShipStation. It would really help, if we could setup kits in shipstation.
Chris@xenolabs - is the plugin ready for testing?

After waiting 3 years, I decided to implement Finale inventory management system to address the bundling issue. Tight integration with SS and affordable.

This would certainly help us. We are managing this roday by setting up automation alerts but this can lead to human error. The whole point we use ShipStation in the first place.

Super important! Please make it happen

@EsCo - Shipstation - Where all the Feature requests are made up and the points dont matter!
This should definitely already be implemented, I don't understand how customers vote on things, and yet somehow things that are much lower on votes get developed before what everyone is asking for?
Helen Ma 824, LLC commented
This feature would bring a lot of value to your customers. Right now, there's not a clear way to manage inventory for kitted items.
Hi this was planned 2 years ago, any updates?
