How to Add Materials to Your Classes
You can get to this part of the system by clicking on Website in the blue Admin Toolbar and then clicking Classes. (You can also get there from POS > Classes)
The Materials Tab will only appear if you have the Version 2 Preview functionality enabled for your classes, and you can do so by going to the Gear Button > Settings > Website Settings > Calendar & Classes, and you'll see where you can enable it near the bottom of the tab. Once you have enable that setting, click Save at the bottom of the page.
Please note that this function will not work unless you are using our Responsive website design that is mobile friendly.
This gives you the ability to bundle products with your classes, either as Optional purchases or Required. Click the appropriate button (None, Optional, or Required) and click the +New Component button to add a new component group. You can offer your students options within each component for what they want to buy, or, if you don't want them to pick between different choices, just add single items to each component (for example, if you had four different cuts of fabric and a pattern needed for your class, you would enter each fabric and the pattern as separate Components).
Selecting one product for a Component will require customers to purchase that product. When more than one product, or a product with multiple styles is selected, customers will be able to choose between multiple options when purchasing the package.
Adding a product with multiple styles will automatically make all styles available as a choice for this component. Each style doesn't need to be added separately.
Please Note: Products that are sold by the yard or by the meter are not able to be added individually as Material components. This is because you cannot specify a quantity directly. What you can do is create a Kit product for the class materials component and add appropriate quantities of such products, then you can use the Kit as the Material component.
If you are bundling Materials with your class, the Pricing tab will have this additional functionality:
The tab will list the base price of the class in the Price of Class field, and the total price for the class plus the bundled materials in the Price with Materials field. Your package deal for the class will always be one set price, and whenever you have optional component items, the student will be able to pick one product for each component group you've made. Please note that the Materials price listed is for ALL Components you created (one product from each Component) and not for individual components, so you need to price appropriately.
