Product bundling

Product Bundling is a marketing strategy that involves offering several products for sale as one combined product. This strategy is very common in the software business (for example: bundle a word processor, a spreadsheet, and a database into a single office suite[?]). It is most successful when :
  • a) there are economies of scale in production,
  • b) there are economies of scope in distribution,
  • c) consumers appreciate the resulting simplification of the purchase decision and benefit from the joint performance of the combined product,
  • d) when the marginal costs[?] of bundling are low.
  • e) when production set-up costs are high,
  • f) when customer acquisition costs are high

Product bundling is most suitible for high volume and high margin (ie.; low marginal costs) products.
