Is it possible to track inventory by serial number?

Hello mark-torrisi,


Thanks for joining us and being a part of the QuickBooks family! I'm happy to help you take a look at the options for setting up your inventory in QuickBooks Online.


Available in the Plus package, inventory tracking is great for keeping tabs on cost of goods sold, quantity on hand, and SKU numbers. At this time, serial numbers are not an option in the Online platform. I encourage you to take a look at this article to learn all of the inventory options and how to set them up: Add your inventory products


If serial numbers are an important part of your bookkeeping, I recommend considering using QuickBooks Enterprise with Advanced Inventory instead. I've got an article that explains more about this feature in Enterprise here: Turn on Advanced Inventory and  Set up Advanced Inventory


Learn more about plans and pricing for this version of the program here: QuickBooks Enterprise. If you've been using QuickBooks Online for a while and have data there that you want to switch to QuickBooks Enterprise, there are lists that can be exported from Online into Enterprise. Some data cannot be exported from one to import into the other however. The links below have additional details.

I hope that helps! If you're simply exploring which version of QuickBooks will be best for you, feel free to give our Sales team a call. They'll be able to go over each of the options with you and steer you in the right direction. Dial 1-888-829-8589 from Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. ET to reach that team.


Have a great weekend!
