In this section, we'll learn how to set up your barcodes so that they're recognised on your StoreHub app, BackOffice and Socket Mobile Barcode Scanner!
Step 1: Setting barcode numbers
The first thing you need to do is check if your products already come with barcodes.
If your products do come with barcodes:
Please key in the barcodes into your BackOffice. This can be done either manually or via CSV (CSV Import file).
Note: To manually insert your barcodes from the BackOffice, head to Products > Manage/Add Products and scroll down to Inventory. Tick Track Stock Level and the Barcode field will appear and this is where you add your barcodes. Remember to save when you're done!
Note: If you need help on the CSV Import file, do refer to our step-by-step guide for more information:
If your products do not come with barcodes:
Please create your own barcode number system. We recommend starting from 100001 and work your way up! Example: 100001, 100002, 100003 etc.
Step 2: Export the CSV containing your barcodes
Next, you'll need to Download the CSV file with your barcode details. You can get this file from BackOffice > Products > Manage Products > Export to CSV.
Step 3: Print your labels with the DYMO LabelWriter software
You'll then need to print your labels. Use the DYMO LabelWriter software to print out your labels as desired!
