Bundle [is_bundle]

Use the bundle [is_bundle] attribute to indicate that you’ve created a bundle: a main product that you’ve grouped with other, different products, sold together as one package for a single price.

This attribute lets us show your product in the right situations by distinguishing your product from manufacturer-created bundles, multipacks, and other products without accessories.

When to use

Required to show your products in enhanced free listings on Google if you've created a bundle containing a main product.

Required for Shopping ads if you’ve created a bundle containing a main product and you’re targeting any of the following countries:

  • Australia
  • Brazil
  • Czechia
  • France
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Netherlands
  • Spain
  • Switzerland
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

The main product of a bundle is the featured product of those products included in the bundle. The additional products should be accessories or add-ons that complement the main product. Examples:

  • For a doll sold with a set of clothes that aren’t packed with the doll, the doll is the main product and the clothes complement it.
  • For a video game console sold with three video games, the video game console is the main product.

  • If your product is a custom bundle consisting of different products that you created, and the bundle includes a main product, submit yes for this attribute. For example, a camera combined with a lens and bag. If you don't submit the attribute, the default is no.
  • Don’t submit the bundle attribute for a manufacturer-defined bundle.
