This article will teach you how to set up product barcodes so that they're recognised on the StoreHub app, BackOffice and Socket Mobile S700 Barcode Scanner!
Setting Up Barcodes for Products
In the BackOffice, the first thing you need to do is head to Products > Manage Products/Add Products and scroll down to Inventory. Tick Track Stock Level and the Barcode field will appear, and this is where you check if your products already come with barcodes.
- If your products do come with barcodes: Please key the barcode numbers into your BackOffice. This can be done either at the BackOffice or via a CSV file import.
- If your products do NOT come with barcodes: Please create your own barcode numbers. We recommend starting from 100001 and work your way up! For example: 100001, 100002, 100003 etc.
Note: If you need help with the CSV file import, do refer to our step-by-step guide for more information.
From here, you need to export your barcode numbers to CSV. You can get the CSV file from BackOffice > Products > Manage Products > Export to CSV (for an in-depth guide for exporting to CSV, click here).
Print the barcodes with a label printing software as desired!
Lastly, set up your scanner! You may have purchased the Socket Mobile S700 Barcode Scanner. Click here to read more on setting it up to read all your labels!
