Barcode FAQs

Barcodes eliminate the manual input of product details, speeding up the checkout process and reducing errors. Barcodes also allow you to keep track of each unique product across all store locations and sales platforms (including online ones) while letting you monitor their movement between the various steps in the supply chain.
Barcodes play a role in the management of inventory and stock. They allow store owners to keep track of how much of the product they have in stock and in which location they are stored.

Barcodes store product-related information including:

  • Price, size, and weight of product
  • Name of manufacturer
  • Date of manufacturing
  • Expiration date
  • Country of origin

Barcodes can also be placed on receipts, which store data related to a sale. Receipt barcodes typically contain the following information:

  • Date and time of purchase
  • Store ID (if there are multiple locations)
  • Register number
  • Transaction number
    Item price
  • Name of associate or staff
  • Discounts or coupons used
  • Method of payment

Barcodes are automatically generated to be machine-readable using specific software. This software creates the barcode based on the required information and the chosen format.

You can choose to opt for the UPC barcodes or custom barcodes.

Custom barcodes are more affordable and flexible in terms of product numbering. By customizing your barcode, you can use your own format and direct it to the internal data that you manage.

UPC barcodes, on the other hand, allow you to track inventory across various stores and online channels (e.g. eBay or Amazon).

You only need barcodes for each type of product and not each individual item.


When assigning barcodes, it’s crucial to consider product divisions. Determine the product types and categories, then make an estimate of the number of barcodes you may need. Make sure your product division is neither too broad nor too narrow. This allows you to maintain the visibility of your product types while avoiding unnecessary data segmentation.

No. Barcodes should not be reused. The main purpose of a barcode is to represent the product data which allows you to automate checkout processes. Reusing barcodes will nullify your system’s ability to automate transactions, resulting in the need for manual data entry.


You need a new barcode for every new product type. However, you can use the same barcode if you are barcoding a second batch of a product that was previously barcoded.
