Is it possible to generate barcodes using Square? If so, how is it done?

We recently starting using Square POS for our pop-up sales and have since switched from Stripe to Square as our main payment gateway for our WooCommerce site.

 

I would like to generate barcodes to attach directly to products or to packaging at the request of a retailer who would like to sell our products and I'm curious is this is possible using Square?

 

Appreciate the help.

What do I use to generate barcodes for Square POS?

We've never had a POS system in our retail shop before and have Square POS now. Bought a Dymo LabelWriter450 and need to generate barcodes for our merchandise, 80% of which is handmade art so there's no previous barcode. If I have Dymo create barcodes, how do I import those codes into Square?

Re: What do I use to generate barcodes for Square POS?

Hey!! Thanks for posting. 🙂 I've merged your post with an existing thread that will help answer your question. We do have a process for sellers to generate barcodes, but it's through our Square for Retail subscription. You get more with the subscription like detailed inventory reporting and tracking as well so it may be a good fit! 

 

Check out the links in Kelly's post and please let me know if you have any other questions.

Barcode generators

I am a current square customer looking to update to square for retail to be able to use inventory function and add a scanner for faster checkout.  I have read several threads saying a barcode generator isn’t available yet.  Are you planning to add and if so, when do you think it will be ready?   Many of our clothing items come in without barcodes and I believe it would be time consuming to have to make up for all these items.
