In this section, we'll learn how to set up product barcodes so that they're recognised on the StoreHub app, BackOffice and Socket Mobile S700 Barcode Scanner!
Step 1: Insert 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 the barcode numbers into your BackOffice. This can be done either at the BackOffice or via a CSV file import.
Note: To insert your barcodes from the BackOffice, 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 add the barcode numbers. Remember to Save when you're done!
Note: If you need help with the CSV file import, do refer to our step-by-step guide for more information:
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.
Step 2: Export barcode numbers to CSV
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 barcodes with label printing software
