A barcode is a unique identifier for a retail item. You can use Zenoti to print barcode labels for individual products or for products in a purchase order.
When you scan a barcode in Zenoti, the product details appear, making it easy for you to look up products when you are making a retail sale or checking out products from the floor to store.

Printing barcode labels in Zenoti consists of the following steps:

  1. Configure barcode print settings for your center (explained in this article)
  2. Print barcodes for individual products or all products in a purchase order

To configure barcode print settings for your center

1. At the center level, navigate to Admin > Organization > Centers > <center name >  
   Settings > Inventory > Barcode Print Settings
.

2. Based on your requirement, select one of the following print formats:

Regular (65 labels)

This print format is optimized for printing on an A4 size paper. Here is an example image of how the printed barcodes appear.

When you print barcode labels in this format, you must ensure the following in the print settings:

  • Paper size is set to A4 
  • There are no margins, borders, and headers and footers set

If you select this format, when you print barcode labels, the impact of this format is as follows:

Printing barcodes of individual products
If you are printing barcode labels of individual products, this format appears as the default print option. 

  • If Default Print is left unchanged: 65 barcode labels are printed (along with product name and code) in 13 rows and 5 columns on an A4 paper.
  • If you select Custom Print: In addition to specifying the number of barcode labels to print, you can specify the row and column Zenoti must start printing from (useful if you have a partially used sheet or do not have a need for 65 barcode labels). All the barcode labels are printed along with product name and code.

If you click Print Barcodes in a purchase order screen, Zenoti prints barcode labels for all the products (along with product name and code) in the purchase order with this print format. You will not have an option to custom print (select products or specify the print quantity).
