Inventory Product Bundling for Liquor Stores

Shopventory handles tracking complex inventory from selling single bottles out of a pack to managing 2-for-1 sales

What is Product Bundling?

There are many ways you can bundle your liquor store inventory. However, bundling, also known as kitting, boils down to two or more complementary products sold together as a new product, with different variations, or at a discount.

Benefits of Bundling in a Liquor Store

  • Increases the average order value by enticing customers to buy more than one product during a purchase
  • Offer a unique product bundle that your competitors don’t sell
  • Get slow-moving products out the door to make room for more profitable ones
  • Simplifies discounting tracking

Types of Product Bundling

Pure Bundles

Pure bundling combines multiple component level products in a new way that customers can only purchase as a bundle. This could mean using ingredients to create your own bloody mary to-go kit. Customers can’t purchase the components separately, like tomato juice or mini hot sauce, but can purchase the pre-made kit.

Mixed Bundles

Mixed bundling refers to products that have components combined together to form a unique product but customers can also purchase the products separately. Curated gift baskets are a great example. Shoppers can purchase a set of three red wines packaged together or can buy a single bottle off the shelf.

Price Bundles

Price bundling lends itself to discounting products when they are purchased in a set. You can promote a 2-for-1 sale and bundle the selected products together and sell them at a discount. Additionally, you can track different price variations under the same product, such as wholesale and retail.

Case Break Bundles

Case break bundling is almost the opposite of mixed bundles. This method includes breaking a product out of its original packaging and selling it in different packaging. For example, you can receive whiskey in cases but sell by the pour during an in-store tasting event.

 

How to Create Product Bundles

Using an inventory management software, like Shopventory, is essential for creating and managing bundles, as most POS systems and e-commerce platforms don’t have this capability.

 

Shopventory bundles will take your inventory and cost-tracking to the next level by tying together inventory quantities. Costs and quantities are automatically calculated, so scratch all those complicated spreadsheets. Just build the bundle and Shopventory will manage all the individual components and inventory levels.

 

Additionally, Shopventory means more accurate inventory tracking. Our reporting system will track the inventory and sales data for your bundles. PAR Levels and alerts let you know when it’s time to reorder a component, so you can stop guessing.

Offer your products in more than one way

Case Break Inventory Tracking

Break down products from their original packaging to set yourself apart from competitors and meet your customers’ buying needs better.

 

Simplify purchase orders by ordering a full case and we’ll automatically update all the components of a product stock count as you bundle. Since bundles tie quantities together, if you increase the quantity of a case of beer, your single bottle quantities will increase as well.

Design unique product offers

Component Level Tracking

Shopventory means you have more opportunities for pure bundling and mixed bundling in your liquor store. Easily track individual components and combine them into a new product offering. 

 

Do you receive product in for a bundle that you will never sell to a customer, like limes for a margarita cocktail kit? Shopventory’s active toggle will allow you to put together purchase orders to easily restock from a vendor without clogging up your sales channel with products you’re not selling individually.

 

Create a curated IPA 6-pack for hop lovers or a wine of the month club basket with a rotating selection of 3 bottles of international wines. Shopventory manages component level tracking for the finished products you sell so you can have accurate sales and inventory records.

Eliminate unnecessary product creation

Alternate Price Point Version Tracking

Selling wholesale or online and in-store has never been easier with Shopventory’s price bundling functionality. Instead of creating duplicate products with a wholesale price and a retail price, designate separate price variations under a bundle. This also works for tax and tax-free prices, as well as bundling happy hour and regular pricing.

Simplify promotions

Bundled Discount Tracking

Price bundling for discounts like 2-for-1 or buy 3 get 1 free. Create multiple price variations for the same product and bundle to draw from the same inventory lot. Shopventory will track all the inventory and sales data so you don’t have to try to manage complicated spreadsheets.
