PrestaShop Bulk Barcode Generator

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.

  3. Run the “Generate Barcode” tool from the toolbar or context menu.

  • Manufacturer code — should include up to three digits. If you want to use barcodes for internal purposes (for your inventory management, control or product picking) you can leave the “Manufacturer” field empty. The generator will add nulls instead of the missing digits.
  • Product ID – is automatically taken from your database.
  • Check digit or checksum character – is calculated by the tool automatically and ensures that the code is read by a scanner.
  • When generating barcodes, pay attention to additional options:

    If you check the option “Override existing barcode”, the codes available in your database will be replaced by the ones generated by the tool. And if, for example, you have some barcodes from your supplier, the new codes will be different.

    It may be a good idea to run this generator for selected products with no barcodes yet. For that, filter products with no barcodes, and use mass barcode generator option:
