As EAN/UPC codes are a universally recognised product identifier both online and offline, and are generally applied to any product being sold through multiple channels (e.g. sales occurring from other than directly from the manufacturer) I would like to see a field for this added to WC core, under Inventory. The overhead of this extra field, for those not needing it, will be completely inconsequential. Whereas the overhead of having to use a plug-in for such basic functionality is potentially much higher.
The most common globally recognised product identifies are EAN, UPC, and ISBN.Jonathan supported this idea ·
