Create Order

The “Create Order” tool is a simple scan-to-order tool that creates an order out of scanned items. The tool can help you quickly create orders when making in-person sales. Created orders will have default taxes applied, and will reduce the inventory of the items sold.

If you have a pop-up shop, a small store, or are looking for a very simple point-of-sale tool, the “Create Order” tool in the Barcode Inventory Management app may be what you’re looking for.

Scanning Barcodes

To begin scanning, click in the “Scan Barcode” input area. Any item scanned should result in a scanned item below.

The barcodes being scanned to not need to come from the generated barcodes from the barcodes and label management tool included with this app. Barcodes can be any code that is readable by your scanner. The scanned symbol will appear temporarily in the “Scan Barcode” input area after it is scanned.

The scanned values will be matched with your store’s product and variation SKU values, as well as their related UPC values. The UPC field can scan with any values including EAN or ISBN values.

Adding More Products

You can add more than one of a single item to an order in two ways. You can adjust the number of products in an order by changing the value in the “Quantity” field for a scanned item. Scanning more items will also increase the quantity of already scanned items, instead of adding a new row. When you scan barcodes for the same item multiple times, the “Create Order” tool will increase the quantity for that item once per scan.

Creating the Order

Create an order by clicking on the “Submit Order” button once you’re done scanning. You’ll see a message that includes a button to view the order when the order has been created. You can also select the button below to clear the existing order information and start a new order.

The created order should have your store’s default tax settings.
