I'm integrating our magento 220.127.116.11 store with our inventory management system(cin7) and I'm trying to figure out how best to setup free products that sell automatically with existing simple products during regularly changing promotions.
About once a month 30+ products will offer a bonus product at no cost.
I could create a bundle product in magento or the inventory system but it would take a lot of time to manage them as I'd have to:
- create bundle product
- disable original product
- change bundle products sku/url to be the same as the original product so it continues to work with feeds/seo/etc.
- change all this back once the promotion is over
Ideally I'd attach the bonus product to an existing parent product at no cost and it wouldn't be seen anywhere but in the backend order view or the checkout/cart as a product line.
If anyone can suggest a good way to manage this I'd appreciate it, I'm hoping there is an extension that does this that I haven't been able to find. Or maybe there is a cleaner solution I haven't even considered.
