A barcode is an encoding tag or label that is placed on all products that allow computers, scanners and mobile devices to track and find these products much faster. Using barcodes is important in your inventory tracking process and offers countless benefits for your company and your customers. The main benefit is that barcodes eliminate the possibility of human error: the amount of errors with manually entered data is high, but scanning a barcode is fast, reliable, and by all means less time-consuming.
Another great advantage of barcodes is that you can print your barcodes (with the printer you have at home) and in a few minutes your entire inventory will be labeled and tracked. You don’t have to pay a lot, buy special printers or waste time. Easy, quick and cheap. YITH WooCommerce Barcodes and QR Codes allows you to generate and read barcodes and QR codes. They are automatically generated both on products and on orders. You can set a specific action whenever you scan a code (decrease or increase stock, change order status…) to automate and speed up your workflow without any mistakes.

Is there a way to randomise the generated barcode?
The plugin uses post ID to make sure the code generated is univocal. However, it is possible to use a filter and change the code. Please note that by using a random value, there could occur conflicts with another product. We usually recommend using a base to which add up the ID. For example, you can generate barcodes with the value set as 5555+ID to get 5556 -> 5557 -> etc.
What information can I include in the barcode generated?
The plugin stores the order ID. From there, you can trace the buyer, what he/she purchased and when.
