I am just about to start work on a client project and we need to handle variable weights on each product. So here is a little bit of background on how their system works and how somehow I need to work out how to bend SHopify to work with this a bit!
Basically customers visit the store with a container of some kind, could be a jar, could be a Tupperware style box and they fill it with loose products. The shop sells a lot of loose food items, such as cereal, rice, pasta and so on. They follow the steps below:
So with this all in mind how can I eliminate the need to enter anything manually such as step 8.2 above? Is it possible?
I appreciate that SHopify products can be given variants, all of which may be incremental but can we create unique ones on the go??
Our company Filljoy (filljoy.co) has built the exact functionality you describe for Shopify POS and we take it a step further by bypassing the need for any printed barcodes - you can view a short demo video on our site. We have multiple Shopify merchants using our app in their stores and they've been quite happy.
Please reach out if you are interested, thanks.
