20K SKU limit?!
I was trying to get started with Dear to use for my physical store and Shopify website that have a shared inventory. Through the process I was told there is a 20,000 sku limit. We are just a small children's clothing boutique in a 1000 sq foot location, yet we go through about 15,000 sku's pre season. You guys are starting this new POS system which based on website images of the POS with displaying clothing items, and offering laybuy that you certainly want this to be used in the clothing industry. It seems like your maximum LIFETIME sku limit is a severe hindrance to what kind of clothing store could use your system. There is no way to delete sku's because they are used transactions and need to stay anyway for historical reporting.
It seems like any retail store that has seasonal inventory will not be able to use your system for very long before hitting 20,000 sku's
I don't know if raising the sku limit is considered a "feature" or not, but I would like to suggest that it be increased to a great extent and also a module for easily bulk deleting old products (maybe being able to sort by the last time they were sold). OR keeping them for reporting purposes but bulk mark them as inactive so that the system can just ignore them except for when someone is doing old history reports, that way they aren't a constant drain on the database.
I really want to try to use Dear but my initial import would be around 15,000 sku's (many of which are 0 qty) and I will be adding another 15,000 or so through July and August.
Thanks so much! I hope to be able to use Dear one day, its the only system that has specific functions related to Shopify that I need.
