Kitting is the process of packing separate but related items, then supplying them as one unit. The kit itself then becomes 1 SKU.
The key with kitting is that not all the items in a kit can be sold individually. For example, the kit may require a special box and promotional insert. These items have their own SKU number that populates in our software however they cannot be purchased independently by consumers.
Clients typically have specific instructions on how kits should be arranged and assembled.
Figure 1.1 shows how the separate and related SKUs are packaged to create a kit.
Figure 1.2 shows a second example of kitting with a different client. Note, the unique box, the plastic casing, and the insert.
Bundling is the process of packing individually separate items and supplying them as one unit. The bundle itself then becomes 1 SKU.
It is important to note that each SKU, in the bundle, can be sold individually. Bundling does not require special boxes, promotional inserts, or other similar items.
Since bundling only requires putting previously established products together in a box, clients typically do not have packing requirements, unlike kits.
Figure 1.3 shows 2 kits packaged together, in a bundle.
