Each of our products have a unique serial number and we want the serial number to be linked with a customer order. Is there a way to create product serialization in Shopify?

Hey, you could put that Information on a comment? Is that for internal information or will be shared with customers? Is that a given number that you know by the time that the order is processed ?

Were you able to solve the serialization question?  I would also like to be able to mass upload serial numbers from a .csv file and append to Notes section by sales order.

Needing to do the same thing. We will ship our products to the fulfillment company and when order come in: they ship.  The fulfillment company can pick any product, not caring about the serial number printed on the box.  But when they ship, we want them to record the serial number at the order level, by product.  They could be shipping one product or 20 to the same customer. But every order must show what was the serial number they shipped.  We also are hoping this will flow back to Quickbooks, as the orders get fulfilled.  I'm reading about meta-fields and other options ... prefer not to buy a solution, but code the change ourselves.

Hi Greg - did you find a solution to this? Looking for something similar.

how about using line item properties? You could have custom information saved for each product of an order or even an order itself. By doing that you could i.e. generate a random number on the product page and tranfer it all the way to the order and display that number in any place you need after the order has been placed by using line_item.properties.

To do this change, it requires multiple changes on the storefront, so it might be complicated. If you want to discuss the implementation, you could contact us at info@webmefy.com, and we will be able to help you!

I'm looking for the exact same solution. If you create 1000+ orders and want an automated system, then entering it into line item properties would be such a tedious exercise.

We actually found a workaround for this. Our warehouse is going to
automatically add the serial numbers to the order notes via the Shopify
API, then we can send this to Hubspot using the same field. Once in
Hubspot, we’ll create a workflow that automatically makes a copy of the
serial number/order note in a custom field. This means that if someone
overwrites the order note field in Shopify we still have a record of the
serial number associated with a particular customer.
