Magento 2 Grouped Product
Grouped Product is one of the basic features in Magento 2. It provides you with a tool to unite a number of independent products and sell them as a group.
Grouped products are great for promotion of the main product in the cart and a number of additions to it. Under any Store View a customer is able to purchase both separate products from the group or the whole group of products at once.
For example, you can create a bundle deal for a smartphone, a portable charger for it and an addi-tional 1-year warranty. In this case, a shopper will be able to buy all the mentioned products at once. At the same time, the existence of such a product type doesn’t affect the possibility of pur-chasing this products individually.
Thus, you can motivate a customer to buy multiple products instead of a single, one and this won’t influence customers’ shopping experience.
In addition, grouped products can include configurable products. It lets the customer to configure a single or multiple products in the group, if needed. But you should always keep in mind a number of restrictions about grouped products in Magento 2:1. Total price of a grouped product is always a sum of products included in the group. You can’t define it separately;
2. You are able to define the stock availability for the group of products, while the inventory has to be managed separately;
3. Despite being added to a single group, products are displayed individually in the shopping cart.
