Barcode support has arrived

We are very excited we released barcode scanning. By using barcode scanners you’ll prevent human errors while handing out or taking back your products.

To help you get started we wrote a quick walthrough on how to use barcodes with Booqable.

Adding barcodes to products

You can add barcodes to a product or stock items by clicking “Add barcode” in the product inventory screen.

Product barcode: The product barcode identifies a product. It’s used to start/stop products in bulk or plan products in advance of which you don’t know the stock items you’ll be handing out.

Stock item barcode: The stock item barcode is used to identify a stock item. You can use this barcode to plan stock items in advance and if you setup a product to be trackable you need to scan this barcode while starting/stopping products on an order.

Generating or adding existing barcode

Select the type of barcode you want to add and scan an existing barcode to attach it to a product or stock item. When you haven’t labeled your products with barcodes yet you can leave the field blank to let Booqable create a barcode for you.

Currently we support the following barcode types:

  • ean8
  • ean13

Let us know at support@booqable.com if your type of barcode is not supported and we’ll add it as soon as possible.
