Bewildered by how you display Bundles - Please advise

Bewildered by how you display Bundles - Please advise

I simply want to offer three items at a group discount.

 

Instead of:

 

Customer adding three Shampoos to Cart at $5.00 each and paying $15.00....

 

I want to sell:

 

3 Shampoo Combo Pack:  at $12.00

 

My programmer tells me to create a bundled product. 

And it all works on the back end. 

 

What I dont get is why it displays like an absolute train wreck on the front end?

 

Common sense would dictate that the product page simply display:

 

3 Shampoo Combo Pack:  $12.00

 

Right?

But here's what it says instead:

 

$12.00

PRICE AS CONFIGURED:  $12.00

3 Shampoo Combo Pack * required fields

3 Shampoo Combo Pack  + $0.00

[ Qty: 3]

PRICE AS CONFIGURED:  $12.00

Add to Cart:  [Qty:  3]

The price displays three times.............

Price as Configured displays twice.........

There's a quantity box even though I told magento no user defined quantity.....

There's another quantity box ...........

The product name is displayed twice, right on top of itself...........

 

Is there no way to simply combine a couple SKU's, set a price for them, and have it display like it should?

Bundle products are made to be configured...

 

You have two solutions : 

1/ You configure to User defined = No, default = yes. And when a bundle has only default non-user-defined options, you change the display in your templates....

2/ You use an extension.<< Snipped >>

Thank you @webcooking - Can you tell me what file in my templates i need to modify for this? 

Re: Bewildered by how you display Bundles - Please advise

Well there are many ways...

 

A very simple one (not the best...) would be to :

 

1/ Add a class to product view : 

 

<div class="product-view product-view-<?php echo $_product->getTypeId() ?>">

so you can differentiate product-view-bundle in your css file

 

2/ Hide in CSS the parts you do not want

 

.product-view-bundle .product-shop .availability, .product-view-bundle .product-shop .price-box-bundle, .product-view-bundle .product-shop .price-box, .product-view-bundle .product-shop .add-to-box 
{
display:none;
}

Re: Bewildered by how you display Bundles - Please advise

My store relies heavily on the Bundled Product display and it's awful.  This is my first time with Magento as just a store owner on a hosted platform I don't have all the access to the files.  I'm digging into the config to change as many settings as possible.

 

All I want is a simple product page that shows the Title Name of the Bundle, the description and Price the proceed to Checkout.  I don't allow multiple items or quantities to be purchased together so my store will always only have 3 basic configurations of the same single product and one Virtual Product.  We are using Magento because it has been customized for our Affiliate marketing, but that customization limits our access.

 

Cheers!
