Bundled Products


This is a guide on how to package products in a Bundle to sell in the catalog. If you are interested in how to make the bundles IMVU sells see Promotional Bundle info


What is a Product Bundle?


A Product Bundle is a way to package multiple items together so a customer can buy everything all at once instead of each item individually.


General Bundled Products Info


-A bundle can be made up of your own products and or the products of others so long as their product is set to bundleable.

-You must own a copy of all items made by others that will be in your bundle.

-All items to be used in a bundle must have passed Peer Review.

-When a bundle is purchased the individual items in the bundle are what will appear in the customer’s inventory.

-If editing the bundle to add or remove items any change will not trickle down to previous purchases.

-If you or the maker of a product in your bundle changes your price on an item in the bundle the bundles pricing will change with those changes.

-Bundles all have an additional 275cr fee attached to them so you will have to take a loss one each sale to price them the same as if the products were all purchased individually.

Creating Bundled product

Bundle Pricing


NOTE: Bundles have a additional 303cr (275cr x 10%) fee tacked on to on each sale.

You cannot sell a bundle of products as the same cost as their normal listing fees without taking a net loss.


Bundle Derivation Cost: This is the sum of the bundles 275cr fee and the prices of all the products in the bundle minus IMVU’s 10% markup.


Bundle Profit: When positive any ADDITIONAL profits you want to make when the bundle sells. When less than -275 any discounts you want to offer on each sale.


To make the bundle cost the same as your items would normally or to offer a discount you must set profit to a negative amount. You will make that much less on every sale.


-To offer items at regular price set profit to -275
-To offer a 100cr discount you would set profit to -375
-To offer 500cr discount you would set profit to -775
-To offer 1000cr discount you would set profit to -1275


The total discounted amount can be no greater than the total profits of your items in the bundle.

All discounts will be taken from your item’s profits, you cannot discount the items that are made by others.
