Bin Locations

Bin Locations -- is this really not something that Shopify supports? 

We need a bin location field on each product that integrates with ShipStation, where we print our packing slips and ship from. 

It isn't optional, it is a requirement. I am struggling to understand how on a platform as large as Shopify that this isn't a standard feature to have a bin location field (it's just as important as a SKU).  

 

Any assistance here?

Same question. I do my own fulfillment (for now), and need to assign bin numbers. Seems like this is something everyone needs. 

 

The answer is probably spend $30/month on some apps to do this very, very simple thing.

We've been here since 2016 and have been using SKUs to include a BIN number. If anyone has an app recommendation or workaround it would be appreciated. We thought about using a third option field in addition to Size and Color and hiding it on the product page. Ultimately we need a dedicated BIN field at the variant level. This should be a part of Shopify without needing a third party app and it's insane that it's still not available.

The problem with that is moving stock, we are very trend driven and some items go out of fashion so we move them to a lower area or a smaller section so we'd be changing skus all the time. I moved from bigcommerce last year and its the only thing i can't solve.

If you are using ShipStation, you can setup bin location in that which is what I do. I would rather just ship out of Shopify and have to pay more money to use shipstation since we only sell on Shopify site.
