Our team of developers created a code mechanism and based on that system the bar codes are created and generated.

Go to the administration> import product> where by copy/paste option from your spreadsheets you can import the wanted items.

2) If you already have the products in your inventory and you do not have the bar codes, repeat the process as it was explained under number 1,.

Go to the administration> import products> copy/ paste again the SKU of the product, Description and EAN/UPC.

This way by the SKU the system will recognize already inserted items and assign the bar codes to the existing items.
