1. SL POS product barcode generation mechanism
Later, to faciliate barcode circulation and
to enhance usage universality, the GS1
organisation added a one-digit Country/Region code at the front of
the original UPC-A barcode for use in different regions.
The Country/Region code of the United States and Canada is set to 0. This 0 will not be printed on the barcode.
That is to say, the two forms of barcode are exactly the same
(shown in the images below).
If the product barcode is in the format of the EAN13 with the first digit of 0, and the product barcode entered in the Admin is also 13 digits (e.g. 0012345678905, with 0 at the front), it will result in a "Product not found" situation.
If the merchant encounters the above situation, please reset the barcode scanner. Please refer to this article for the instruction.
- The scanner reads: 012345678905
- Barcode entry saved in the Admin: 0012345678905
