Add fields for inventory

Our 3PL partner needs us to add 3 fields in Product/inventory backend.

  1. Net weight (Net weight refers to the weight of the raw product and does not include the weight of the product's packaging or container)
  2. UN Number (UN IDs are four-digit numbers that identify dangerous goods. We selling hairspray)
  3. A checkbox for Batch number (the batch number is a designation that is printed on the product label that allows the history of its production to be traced)

This should only be visible for us and our 3PL partner and not for customers, at least not on the site.

Shopify said that I could add "Variants" but the problem with that is that if I have different sizes the customer will then see "UN Number", "Net weight" as well, so that's not a solution

see exempel



What I would like is to add 3 fields "UN Number, Net Weight and a checkbox for "Batch" here:
