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.
We would also be in need of serial numbers added for warranty and layaway purposes. We retail furniture and appliances. Every appliances has a SKU, Barcode and Serial Number. We could sell the a customer multiple freezers which would have the same SKU and Barcode but each have individual Serial Numbers. This should be a standard feature and would benefit many businesses.
I found this thread because we need something also. Interesting that it's still not integrated or even an option after 2 years of this being worked on. The barcode reader app itself gets 2 stars and was launched in 2018!
2 years down the line and posts are still being made requesting intergrating a serial number, have to admit i too am thinking time to move if something that should be simple for the right person to write into the software cannot be instigated? i am sure many would pay for an app that would do this! c'mon guys we know and you know its possible
I understand your frustration; this long thread has been ignored for a few years. To help combat some of the issues mentioned, I built Serializer - Product Tracking.
Currently, with the app, you can
Unfortunately, the app does not currently allow checking items in and out, but I may add this functionality in the future. I'd like to understand better if you guys are still interested in this feature or have moved on elsewhere. If you're interested, feel free to PM me. I'd love to have a chat with you.
i was with you guys and moved to lightspeed becouse of this
i love shipify and might be coming back this is crazy to me that a big company like yours can not do a simple add on to software and we have to go outsource this to some small company and pay more
let me know if you guys figuered this out we are big luxury watch retiler and hoefully are coming back to you guys.
Our company sells medical devices and products like wheelchairs in Switzerland and the EU. New medical device regulations state that all sold products MUST come with a trackable serial number. Next will probably even be the lot number.
I stumbled upon your app by pure chance and am going to give it a try. I hope it works, as there doesn't seem to be another app for this on the Shopify store.
Keeping my fingers crossed.
In any case, your app seems to really fill a HUGE gap in Shopify, especially for stores in highly regulated fields such as the medical device market.
I'll keep you posted.
