How does it work?
  • Scanventory is a plugin that is used alongside with Woocommerce, which is a WordPress E-Commerce solution.
  • The Scanventory system allows the user to print product labels that have a custom QR code. It also allows the user to place labels on any product.
  • The software uses the attached QR codes from your inventory to allow you to change product information such as the inventory stock, status and availability. Users can do this with a simple QR code scanner.
  • The system can scan any label that is configured for a QR code reader/scanner app.

I thought this would do the trick, but it’s extremely limited. Can’t customize the labels, and they don’t format well at all. I was hoping they would resize to fit ALL attributes, for instance, but they do not. Disappointing.

Nice idea, but not compatible. Lot's of circular links and no action…

Not compatible yet, or not in my experience…. ?

Scanventory 1.1.2

Can’t get it out of demo mode, no way of getting a licence key, do get a “simple” list of SKU, stock lines, quatity, Price, but can’t produce a single label or do anything productive.
Drop down’s that aren’t visible, no obvious endpoints or action buttons…

No response yet from support but we’re still only 12hours waiting as this is typed, holding out hope…

Changelog & Readme files haven’t been updated in a while if you install and have a poke around.
I installed & un-installed… Will try again later, if I don’t find something else!
