Offering discounts for bundles

You may want to offer bundle-specific or quantity-based discounts on bundles. By default, dynamically priced bundles will use the subscription or one-time price associated with the bundle selection product. However, you can accomplish custom discounting - bundle discounts or quantity-based discounts - by using the bundle selections API and overriding the price of each bundle selection.

Before creating discounts, the Bundles team must enable the feature. To enable this feature, reach out to [email protected].

Creating discounts for bundles

🚧

Note:

Creating discounts for Bundles requires custom coding and use of the Recharge API. Custom coding is not supported by the Recharge support team as per our design and integration policy. You can work with a developer, contact a Recharge Partner, or if eligible, take advantage of Recharge's Merchant Development Program to implement these changes.

To create discounts for bundles, you must retrieve a JSON object with information about the bundle, items, and prices. Then you must override each item's price in the bundle with the discounted prices. Refer to the following steps and code snippets to create discount for bundles:

  1. Make a GET request to /bundle_selections with the purchase_items_ids parameter set to the subscription ID. In the following example, the GET request is retrieving the purchase_items_ids of 346359203:
curl 'https://api.rechargeapps.com/bundle_selections?purchase_item_ids=346359203' \
  -H 'X-Recharge-Version: 2021-11' \
  -H "X-Recharge-Access-Token: $TOKEN"
  1. Use the returned JSON object to view the information about the bundle, items, and prices.
  2. Make a PUT request to /bundle_selections/:id with the updated item prices. In the following example, the PUT request sets the price for each select to $1.00 per item, resulting in a total bundle cost of $12:
curl -X PUT 'https://api.rechargeapps.com/bundle_selections/324474' \
  -H 'X-Recharge-Version: 2021-11' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -H "X-Recharge-Access-Token: $TOKEN" \
  -d '{
    "items": [
      {
        "id": 4176688,
        "collection_id": "437254881586",
        "collection_source": "shopify",
        "created_at": "2023-03-27T21:38:04+00:00",
        "external_product_id": "8152797053234",
        "external_variant_id": "44580980588850",
        "price": "1.00",
        "quantity": 6,
        "updated_at": "2023-03-27T21:38:04+00:00"
      },
      {
        "id": 4176687,
        "collection_id": "437254881586",
        "collection_source": "shopify",
        "created_at": "2023-03-27T21:38:04+00:00",
        "external_product_id": "8152798560562",
        "external_variant_id": "44580987142450",
        "price": "1.00",
        "quantity": 6,
        "updated_at": "2023-03-27T21:38:04+00:00"
      }
    ]
  }'

The bundle_selections/:id endpoint requires the ID of the bundle selection to be updated. You can retrieve the ID by making a GET request to the /bundle_selections endpoint with the purchase_item_ids parameter set to the subscription ID, as shown in the previous example.
