In this blog, I will explain how with slight customization of point_of_sale module, we can make use of weight and price barcode. This is how I have configured the system.
Weight Barcode has prefix of ’21’ followed by 6 digits Internal Reference followed by 5 digits weight.
Then, when the product is weighed on weighing machine, we get a barcode as follows (Note- This barcode is generated through weighing machines)-
Now, when this is scan in Point of Scale, Odoo automatically pulls the right product with the right quantity.
Similarly, Price Barcode has ’23’ as prefix followed by 6 digits Internal Reference followed by 5 digit numeric price.
Consider you have a product called Decorative Item and its price changes based on customer’s request. So, we can keep one product and change its price in PoS using Price Barcode.
Now, we will generate a price barcode to enable PoS pick the right price as soon as it is scanned. (Note- This barcode is generated using barcode softwares)
When this barcode is scanned, Odoo picks the decorative item with the given price.
On similar principle, we can make use of Discount Barcode during promotions.
