You can use barcode scanners with Tracepos. Here’s how.

Start by adding the UPC code, EAN code, or ISBN code to the product.

You can do this while adding a Product to Tracepos or when importing products in bulk into Tracepos.

The easiest way to find the code is by scanning the barcode into a text editor, such as Notepad on Windows.

Then simply cut the code and paste it into the UPC/EAN/ISBN field.

Note: You can scan the barcode directly into the form or spreadsheet, but you may see error messages, depending on how your barcode scanner is configured.

Also, if you are using Excel, remember that the UPC/EAN/ISBN code is text, not a number, so set that particular column as text, so the leading zeroes aren’t chopped off.
