A Barcode number can be used to identify one product or a group of products. In other words, multiple products can all have the same Barcode number.
Typically, the Barcode field in Thrive Inventory by Shopventory is used to enter a UPC (Universal Product Code). This is usually the Barcode number that comes on the product itself.
How is it used?
Barcode numbers are typically used to find a group of products all at once. They can also be used to track the manufacturer's information when needed. Oftentimes, a Barcode is used to "mark" a group of products in some way for easy lookup.
Things to note
A Barcode can contain letters, symbols, and numbers.
Barcodes may be visible to your customers.
Thrive Inventory does not generate Barcodes as it is mostly intended for manufacturer info.
