App to count physical inventory with barcodes?

I sell vintage baseball cards. I have thousands of them for sale and each one of them is professionally graded and has an associated unique serial number assigned to it. For eacample; I have 3 different 1956 Topps Mickey Mantle cards for sale. All 3 of them are the same card but each has been graded and has a different value and is unique as it has its own serial number associated to it. 37462837 - $300 - 1956 Topps Mickey Mantle - Fair Condition 83746297 - $500 - 1956 Topps Mickey Mantle - Good Conditions 27475947 - $1000 - 1956 Topps Mickey Mantle - Mint Condition Again, I have Thousands like this. All have a serial number. I have created barcodes for all of these and printed them out and attached the barcode to each item. I sell 70% online and 30% at trade shows. I need to do inventory counts a lot to make sure nothing is stolen. I am looking for a solution where I can simply scan the barcode of everything I physically have and generate an inventory count report that shows the discrepancy. Example, Shopify thinks I have 2673 cards in inventory. I scan every single card in my physical possession. A report is generated that shows I scanned 2668. I am missing 5 cards. It then shows me which 5 cards I am missing so I can investigate. Additionally, I have scanned 1 card that is not recognized by its serial number. I then need to investigate that and see what the error was in adding it to inventory. Does anyone know of a Shopify app that can help with this and is easy to use? Bonus if I can use my iPhone to scan in the inventory but also happy to buy a barcode scanner if needed. Again, I want this to run reports, not simply overuse the existing inventory based on a scan which is all I have been able to figure out how to do with existing apps. Thanks everyone!

Hey there, Frederick!

Bo here from Shopify Support.

That is a really great question, coming from a retail background myself I totally understand the need for this feature when it comes to stock management. I did some digging into this and found two apps that will allow you to do this.

StockSavvy is $29/month and comes with a 14-day free trial. The description on the app page describes exactly what you need and this is the one I would suggest.

Another option is Quick Scan which is $5/month and also comes with a 14-day free trial. The reason I recommend SrockSavvy over this app is that the reviews on this app state that it takes too many clicks to be useful for stock taking.

I hope this helps!

All the Best,
Bo

Hey there, Frederick!

I am currently building an asset tracker. I can modify my current project to tailor your request.

 

I am currently building an IOS and android App to scan your QR/barcode, and allow you to assign the quantity so that I can update your stock on Shopify.

Where are you currently based? I'd like to have a face to face chat to see how I can help you on this.

Perhaps Sunfy can help you with your daily tasks.

It is a native app for iOS and Android where you can change inventory very fast with scan or full text search.

You can test it for free, here is the link.

Fredrick, I’m looking for exactly what you were looking for last year and hoping you found something you can share with me. I have an antique store with thousands of bar coded items and Was hoping I could just scan everything and compare that List to the inventory list and then investigate the Difference. The one app A person suggested sounds like it would do the job but $29 a month seems steep for something I’m only going to use once a year to do a physical inventory. Thank you for any feedback you can provide. Alan
