Bundling Virtual and Hard Copy Products

Post by Compositeur » Wed Apr 17, 2019 7:14 am

Hello,

I've installed the 'Shipment for Virtual Products' plugin to VirtueMart v3 in Joomla v3. That plugin enables digital files to be sold.

Does anyone know of a clever way to bundle digital and 'hard copy' products, as a single product bundle for purchase?

This would for example be for selling a PDF of a book and a hard-back copy of it, as one product, at the same time.

Thanks in advance guys! :geek:

Could you not put a note with the digital download saying something akin to "All digital subscribers will receive a hard copy in the post in x days".

Thanks gws, but the 'Shipment for Virtual Products' plugin for obvious reasons does not ask for the customer's shipping address.

Thanks for this tip jenkinhill. Much appreciated.

Costs of subscriptions to plugins that add very basic functionality, mount exponentially!
