How do I set up a Virtual Bundle or any type of product bundle?

Keep in mind that the MCF Shipping app has a few requirements. One of those requirements is that the product SKU’s in Shopify match the product SKUs in Amazon Seller Central. When a store creates a virtual bundle as a FBA product in Amazon Seller Central. Amazon allows that merchant to sell and ship that virtual bundle on Amazon.com. But, remember when you sell your FBA products on a different website other than Amazon you are now using the Multi-Channel Fulfillment or MCF program. So the rules are different.

Which means when you create this virtual bundle product in Amazon Seller Central, that product still does not physically exist. And in order for the MCF Shipping app to send the correct fulfillment request for your Shopify orders to Amazon, we need the correct SKUS, and we need those SKUS to be in stock and actually exist in an Amazon warehouse!

Inside of the MCF Shipping app. Navigate to the Home Page of the app. And click on Bundles
