Shopify UPC Generator
7 months ago
Shopify merchants can buy UPC codes for their products so they can list it on Amazon, etc...
What is included in the sale ?
I will give you the application, the source code, the source code for the website, and the domain name. I also have a handful of barcodes that I have purchased that you can have as well.
What is the technological stack ?
Everything is node + react, and runs on AWS Lambda with Serverless. It is actually a pretty slick piece of kit. Since it is lambda you pay per 100ms of use + the cost to run the dynamo tables and thats it. There is no maintenance costs at the low end and it scales infinitely at the high end.
Which parts of the project are incomplete ?
There is a small bug linking the existing products with the customer's purchased UPC codes. I am happy to entertain discussion about fixing the bug first for an additional fee, or you can just have it as is.
Why are you selling ?
Bored with project on to bigger things. There is a concern as you dig into the weird world of UPC codes, that they really should be generated from the GS1 and not use the "lower quality" purchased UPC codes this app uses. This might be malarky.
How can the future owner turn your project into a business ?
Fix the bug, get approved for the shopify app store, I submitted the app once and there is a bit more from that, but people find the app somehow and install it without any marketing.
How does UPC part work - is it an affiliate model or would I have to buy them in bulk and resell them?
I buy them in bulk and resell them.
