Adding Serial Numbers to Products

Hello,

 

I have a brick and mortar store and want to implement a self check out but the products need to be able to have unique serial numbers for every product whether they are the same size/color/type or not.  Is there a third-party app that allows us to input a serial number into every item? 

I would prefer that Shopify engineers implement this asap as an option.  It would greatly benefit Shopify because many industries would use it beyond self-checkout such as warranty issues, returns, RFID solutions, self-checkout, shrink reduction, labor cost reduction, personalized service increase, batch tracking and more.  I think that it can be done quickly through Shopify Products and in order to be on the cutting edge of technology this must be implemented immediately.

 

Thanks,

 

EJ

Hello

what about tracking the items by serial numbers only on sales transaction.. somewhere where the person who prepare the order can scan the item serial number upon performing sales delivery and this serial be printed on the invoice ( For warranty purposes)

For example, if the customer orders 2 of the same item , we need the ability to scan two serial numbers and print on the invoice

 

Any thoughts are highly appreciated

 

Thanks,

Suha

I don't understand how this isn't a core feature.  There is already a database for this, just need to add a field.  How many add-ons should we need to purchase before we switch storefronts?

i have found a workaround that enables me to insert a searcheable serial number, although not ideal another address can be added to the customer details and a serial number can be placed in one of the empty colums

if you then do a search in the customers section for a serial number it will show the customer allocated

I totally agree that is why we haven't  switched our POS from the one we have to shopify..every other POS has this and yes it's s usually a core feature.
