is_bundle [is_bundle]: Definition
is_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 ad in the right situations by distinguishing your item from manufacturer-created bundles, multipacks and other products without accessories.
When to use
Required if you've created a bundle containing a main product and you're targeting any of the following countries:
- The Netherlands
- United Kingdom
- United States
The main item of a bundle is the featured product of those items included in the bundle. The additional items should be accessories or add-ons that complement the main item. Examples:
- For a doll sold with a set of clothes that aren't packed with the doll, the doll is the main item and the clothes complement it.
- For a video game console sold with three video games, the video game console is the main item.
