When you run your PrestaShop store, barcodes serve like a bridge between your listings and physical products. They help you keep order with your physical stock, simplify product picking and add new arrivals. For accurate inventory management, this feature is a must.
If you don’t receive barcodes from your supplier, or you have self-made products you might need to generate them yourself. And if you use Store Manager to administer your store, batch Barcode Generator comes out of the box along with other tools.
Store Manager for PrestaShop allows generating EAN13 and UPC codes for multiple products and combinations. Let’s see how to perform this task.
