Product Supplier SKU and Shop SKU

New Member

I can't find an answer to this question anywhere in the forum.

I use my supplier's SKU in each products SKU field however I want to create my own SKU as I will be putting in on the product labels for easy POS identification and don't want my customers to see the supplier's SKU.  

How can I add an additional SKU field for each product without paying for an expensive app?  I installed the Metafields Guru app but it looks like I would need to create a field for each individual product.

Hi - could you clarify what you are trying to do, as I'm a bit unclear?

 

Reason for confusion is that:

a) you are in the API section of this forum (which is fine) but I don't think your referring to doing this via the API

b) metafields don't show on the Shopify POS, so is that the POS you are referring to or am I misunderstanding entirely

c) do you need to use/create a field that you can see on the Shopify POS

Hi Jon, I don't need to see the field in the POS, just in Shopify itself so when placing an order with a supplier I know their SKU for the product.

OK. And your SKU, what are you trying to achieve with that? Also, are you using barcode field?

No I'm not using the barcode field but I sync with eBay and won't that
cause a problem in eBay if I put my own barcode there?

Hi - yes if you are syncing to eBay then best not to use the barcode field. Sounds like a metafield is your best way to go here.

 

You can create metafileds without an app by using a bit of a frig of the bulk editor, have a read of this to see how https://www.sunbowlsystems.com/blogs/how-to/metafields-in-shopify-without-using-an-app

 

Hope that gives you what you want.
