Hi there,

I was wandering if someone knows if it is possible to display the barcode of item(s) in the order page along with the SKUs in the Shopify

Backoffice?

According to Shopify's Chat Support, this is something unsupported natively in Shopify.

Does someone has an idea or/and could come up with any idea?

Thanks !

These types of things are either done as app links which means navigating away from the orders admin.

Or a separate app used for stock picking, inventory scanning,etc.

Or by browser extension|bookmarklets requiring custom development.

 

Hypothetically it's possible to submit a barcode image as a line item property on a line item that way the image shows up in the orders admin..

HOWEVER, it would show in the orders admin as a small thumbnail and it would show up during a customers checkout.

Though if stores on a shopifyPlus plan can edit checkout.liquid to suppressed that.

Hello @PaulNewton ,

Thanks for jumping in and for your reply.

Actually, I forgot to specify an important detail regarding my question. I dont Want/need to have the barcode image to display in the order page along with the SKUs but the barcode number.

Our agents know our products mostly by their Barcode numbers and not SKUs. When they manage/change/modify orders, it's much simpler/faster for them if they can immediately identify the product with the barcode number, without having to translate the SKUs to find out the equivalent barcode number.

Well that's  alot simpler

if there's a 1to1 for a products and it's variants to a barcode just use that to fill in a hidden line item property

{% for tag in product.tags %}
.....
....
...
.
<p class="line-item-property__field"> <label for="barcode_number">barcode_number</label> <input id="barcode_number" type="hidden" name="properties[__barcode_number]" value="{{tag_barcode}}"> </p>
.....

 If it's many barcodes for each variant you'll want to store the barcode(s) either in a metafield or a mapped list in the theme, or hide them in the product description.

If your not storing SKUS on the variant then use that same method for barcodes

 

I can implement both solutions contact me with details for pricing either by email in sig or PM on the forums.
