VIN Decoding in the WordPress Dashboard

Inventory Presser VIN Decoder is an add-on that decodes VINs typed or pasted into the block editor vehicle sidebar on the Add New Vehicle page.


This animation shows vehicle attributes populating after a VIN is pasted into the VIN input on the Inventory Presser editor sidebar:

This screen recording shows the Inventory Presser editor sidebar opened, a VIN pasted into the appropriate text box, and the result of the VIN decode populating other controls in the block editor.

A license to the VIN Decoder add-on also includes access to the API at Friday Systems that provides the vehicle data. Purchasing a license does not include unlimited, public-facing, or automated access to VIN decoding.
