Why doesn't the cumulative price of individual items show up in a bundled item?

After pricing individual items in my inventory I then add them together for a bundled item. I need to see what the price of the bundle is. Why can't it show the total of all items in the bundle?

Also, once a bundle is sold will the individual items be withdrawn from inventory? (I am using QBO+)

A bundle is just a nickname for parts sold at one time, it has no price itself.  Bundle is the same as group item in desktop, and in desktop it does not show the sales price of the items included either - I expect that when they created the bundle item in QBO they just copied the format/function of the desktop group item.

Showing item price in a group item in desktop has been a long often requested suggestion

Yes the items listed in the bundle, when the bundle is sold, are removed from inventory just as if you had listed them one at a time.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
