How do I add actual inventory locations (bin location) to a product so we know where to go to pick the product to ship.

I am looking for this at the moment too! 

 

I can only see one app that is an additional add-in. Seems silly though as shopify is supposed to be an all in 1 inventory management system.

I need this too, just 1 field that prints out on the order to record the location in the warehouse.

Hello @reason8 ,

You still need to be able to create bin locations. Then when you pick from those bins inventory needs to be updated. So it needs to be apart of a warehouse management system. Shopify isn't quite there yet but apps are very promising. Since Shopify apps can subscribe to a stores orders it would be very easy for us to implement something like this for you.

Can your app create bin locations that can print underneath product in shopify?

Currently our app does not add bin location to product within Shopify, but it can be extended. What do you mean with print on product page?

I just meant under the product on the invoice or packing slip.  We use printout designer to print packing slips and invoices.  My team pulls the orders from the packing slips.  It would be great to have it automatically assigned to a product and tyhat product would show its location on each of those forms they pull from.  That way when they are pulling they know where to go....

Hi everyone,

we are looking at switching over to shopify after 6+ years on another platform.  I've read through all these posts and simply cannot believe that Shopify doesn't support Bin Locations.  That seems like such a simple, basic, foundational feature!      Right now, our plan is to use shipstation because they support bin locations.

Does anyone have any new information on whether this feature will come to Shopify or a better app to use?

All we need is for the bin locations to print on the individual packing slips.  

 

thanks!

Hi @matt1147 ,

Bin locations may make its way into Shopify just like local pick up and delivery apps were made by Shopify due to increased demand.

For now and we have a custom app that can do exactly that, print a custom packing slip with your bin location names next to the line items. If you need more than that we can customize it to suite your needs.

Just shoot us an email at hello@achieveapplabs.com

This task is best handled with a WMS or advanced inventory control system. There are a few solutions that will handle inventory and bin control. I've been working on a system and brought to the market 2 years ago called SKUSavvy, which does just this. It is a simplified mobile warehouse management system with a visual warehouse layout tool. 

As per some of the questions here:

How do I add actual inventory locations (bin location) to a product so we know where to go to pick the product to ship?
  • Within SKUSavvy you have a visual inventory method, which holds and stores inventory with a barcode associated with the bin location. You can use any mobile device to scan items into bins and scan the bin to view inventory contained within
  • Enable pick routes to be generated in a wave style through the warehouse
  • Use order batching to pick many orders of like products
  • Package and fulfill orders swift with automated packaging and shipping label generation
  • Print barcodes for products or bins, invoices, and shipping labels

Maybe I am not using your app correctly but it is not performing well. I received an order and its not showing up in your app via shopify or your mobile app to pick the order.

You can generate a pick list manually which is the default, for that just select the orders in Shopify and click on more actions / bulk actions. Here you can generate a pick list for multiple orders.

Alternatively the pick list ist generated on each new order if the setting under pick list tab is enabled.
