We consider a "bundle" any listing with multiple products under one ASIN.
Generally, selling bundles should be limited, so as to keep listings clear for customers
and to avoid repeat orders. However, we are aware that certain bundles offer advantageous
pricing and selection for customers, so we strive to continue allowing these kinds of
offers on our platform. Preferably, bundles should be created using the "Manage Promotions"
tool in Seller Central.
Note: In 2014, the German Finance
Ministry decided on a tax policy for package deals where a customer can buy a print version
of a newspaper or magazine in combination with access to an electronic version of these
publications. Starting January 1,
2016, printed publications must be taxed differently than electronic publications,
at 7% and 19% respectively, even if both are offered for one flat fee. If you think your
products are subject to this regulation, please consult a tax advisor.
