QB Issue Resolution:

First off, are you looking at QuickBooks Online or QuickBooks Desktop?


QuickBooks Online – Does not have a notion of inventory locations. You could  work serial numbers into inventory item name, sales description, or append to SKU. I would not reccomend this. It would be extremly tedious (might as well use a spreadsheet). That said, you will love QuickBooks Online for Invoicing, and reconciling with bank transactions, no-backup pains, and of course the mobility.


QuickBooks Desktop – Has inventory Locations, and you can track Lot/Serial Numbers. To learn more about how to do this in Desktop Versions. Go here:



I dont reccomend going with Desktop. Even though it has the capability. You want a system better than Sage 50. Go with quickbooks online and look for cloud-based apps that meet your need. Start with the app store for inventory management/manufacturing apps.




This is an image came from the warehouse of a QuickBooks user running DataNinja to generate seralized barcodes for inventory at reciept in Quickboks, and barcoded locations for scanning inventory in-and-out of bins.
