Introduction

Barcode by definition is the small image of lines (bars) and spaces that is affixed to retail store items, identification cards, and postal mail to identify a particular product number, person, or location. The code uses a sequence of vertical bars and spaces to represent numbers and other symbols. Barcode is a reliable method for cutting costs and saving time for business.

Barcode management module from Magestore provides your business with a handful solution to generate barcode, print barcode label and scan barcode, all in one.

How it works

Generate barcode

Path: Inventory Management > Barcode Management > Generate Barcode

Magestore's solution gives you 2 modes to generate barcode:

  • One barcode per product SKU

  • Multiple barcode per product SKU

This can be configured in Barcode Settings (Path: Inventory Management > Barcode Management > Barcode Settings).

Configuration in Barcode Settings

  • If you set One barcode per product SKU as Yes, then the system will allow you to generate one barcode for one product SKU only.

Now to generate barcode, you go to Generate Barcodes tab. From here you can select the product that you want to generate barcode, fill in the Supplier (optional) then generate.

Fill in the Supplier

  • If you set One barcode per product SKU as No, then it opens up 2 options to generate barcode when you go to Generate Barcodes tab.

Generate Barcode Tab

These 2 options are: Generate barcode per item or Generate barcode per purchase.

Generate barcode per item means each item will have its own identified barcode although they have the same SKU.

Generate barcode per purchase means items will be identified by the time it is purchased. Although you take 10 items with same SKU in one time purchasing from supplier, these 10 items will have the same barcode. But in another time of purchase, they will have different barcodes.

After selecting the option you want to proceed with, you can continue selecting product, fill the product Qty. , supplier and purchased time (optional) then generate.

Admin can configure the barcode pattern to generate. Barcodes generated will be saved in Barcode listing page & Barcode created history.

Import barcode

Path: Inventory Management > Barcode Management > Import Barcodes

When your products already have a pre-generated barcode, you will not need to use Generate barcode feature. Instead, you can import barcode directly into the system using Import barcode feature of Inventory Management. The system provides a sample import file including SKU, Barcode, Qty. and Supplier & Purchase time (optional).

Scan barcode

Path: Inventory Management > Barcode Management > Scan Barcode

In Inventory Management module, you need to use a Barcode scanner which is able to connect with your computer. Then you can scan to read product information or update stock Qty. when doing Stock taking (Stock taking is a feature available in Inventory Management module).

  • When going to Scan Barcode, you can read barcode information and product information.

When going to Scan Barcode

  • In Stock-taking, there are 5 steps:
    -General information
    -Prepare product
    -Stock take
    -Complete data entry
    -Complete Stock take.

Scanning can be applied at step 2: Prepare product before Stock take. From this step, there is an option to import products and sample files are provided. You can use a barcode scanner to scan product with Qty. into an excel/csv file. Then upload the file with Qty. counted by barcode scanner into the system to update Stock take Qty.
