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 only real solution is the one you build for yourself.

Its not going to happen. I was able to figure it out though. I used the barcode section of the product to place a bin location. Then installed Printer Pro and updated the code to show the barcode text below the product which shows the bin location of the item.
To be 100% honest though, I used it for about 2 days and was completely frustrated by how difficult/cumbersome shopify's shipping is and went back to shipstation. The 5 clicks to get a shipping label to print is just dumb and the cost saving is not worth the time. Shipstation has bin locations and for $29 a month it is worth it.
