Is anyone using the same UPC code for seasonal bottles/cans that ship to grocery stores? How have you set it up in OB? Are you using a different OB Item Code for each seasonal beer, or the same?
We have used the same UPC code but a different OB Item code so that we could track sales data by each seasonal beer. We haven't had many problems with Grocery Stores, as many actually suggest to do it this way due to how they do their resets based on 6 months trailing data.
But we are encountering issues with Whole Foods as they want a 1 to 1 relationship. So my OB Item Code needs to be associated with 1 UPC code.
Is anyone shipping to Whole Foods and utilizing the same UPC code for a seasonal or specialty line of beers? How did you set it up?
