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.

Can I add stock by scanning the product barcode?

Yes, the plugin allows you to manage the stock. You'll have to create a page using the shortcode as explained here

Can the QR code be set to redirect to the product URL?

Yes, you can make sure the QR code is generated using the "Product URL" from the plugin settings.

When I export orders will the plugin export the product barcode as well along with the product name?

Yes, if you use the default WordPress export tool to export the orders, the barcodes data will be included. On the contrary, by using a different export tool, you will need to add the barcodes meta keys to be exported.

Can I import existing barcodes from my CSV file, using All Import?

It is possible to import the barcode values with a CSV on All Import or with the default WooCommerce product importer.

Can the plugin be connected to a mobile scanning app?

We don't offer an application to scan, but we can recommend these ones:
For Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gamma.scan&hl=en
For IOS(apple): https://itunes.apple.com/app/scienzi/id1180168368  


Is it also possible to add parts for inventory by scanning the barcode?

The stock can be increased or decreased by scanning the barcode using the shortcode as explained in this section of the official documentation.

Does the plugin put the EAN numbers up on MySQL?

Yes, the barcodes and QR codes are stored in the database.

Can a generated barcode for an order be sent to the customer via email, i.e. with the processing order email sent by WooCommerce?

The plugin has the option Show order barcode on every email that allows you to choose whether to show the barcode on all the emails or on the one sent for Completed orders only.

Does the plugin allow to print barcode stickers?

Yes, the plugin offers the printing feature as you can see from this page.

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.

Is there a way to add barcodes to variable products?

Yes, the plugin works with variable products too. Please refer to this page for more information.
