Can we display compare at price on printed barcode labels?

Hi folks,

 

We have a bricks & mortar store as well as online. Is it possible to display the compare at price on the printed price/barcode labels for our products?

 

We currently just print via the Retail Barcode Labels app on a Dymo 450 printer. I've searched as best I can in the knowledge base and on Google but no luck so far.

 

Hope someone can help!

Hey, @dawsclothing 

 

Adding the compare-at price is not currently possible on Retail Barcode Labels. With that said, I'd happy to pass this along to our developers as feedback. This way it can be looked into as a potential future feature implementation.

 

In the meantime, it would be worthwhile looking into some third-party label printing apps that may offer this sort of functionality. 

 

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

Thanks Dirk, appreciate the reply - I'll check those apps out. For users with a physical storefront it seems like a bit of an essential when products are offered at a seasonal sale price for example. Thanks again

I totally understand why that could be beneficial for your business needs, @dawsclothing. I'll be sure to pass that feedback along.

Hi Dirk, I too have an online store and a bricks and mortar store and like most in this situation I sometimes require a different price in store than I do online. When will this be possible? If not can I print compare at price and price on my bar code labels. I'm amazed that this doesn't appear to do either? Please help. Many thanks, Garth.

Hi Dirk,

 

How is this update going?  We have been on Shopify for over 12 years, and I raised this issue probably 5 years ago with no resolution still.  

 

Having to go into a product, bulk edit, delete the compare at price, input the full price, save, print label, so I can then manually write on the marked down price in red pen, then go back into the product and change back the price and compared at price fields to match what we are selling at in sale mode.  Just ludicrous that this cannot be a development of the highest relevance.  Surely the easy way is for the barcode label app to have a 'compare at field as well as price field in the template, instead of just variant 1, 2, 3 etc.

They're never updating that like just like everything else everyone asks for. They monetize anything useful and necessary through 3rd party apps. Woo!

Hi! Do you have any feedback on whether the compare price will be developped? As retailers that would be awesome for Sale / Discounts period.

I hope so, because as a business online and bricks and mortar we are crying out for this option. It’s really short sited not having it.
