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 Shopventory is used to enter UPC (Universal Product Code) info. This is usually the Barcode number that comes on the product itself.
How is it used?
Barcode numbers are usually used to find a group of products all at once.
They can also be used to track the manufacturer information when needed.
Oftentimes, a Barcode is also used to "mark" a group of products in some way for easy lookup.
