Now Let’s See the difference between EAN-13 and UPC-A Barcodes:

The EAN contains a 13 digit number and the UPC contains a 12 digit number. UPC-A Barcodes are effectively a subset of EAN-13 Barcodes. If the first digit on the EAN-13 number is a ‘0’, then the bars will be of both the EAN-13 and the UPC-A (without the leading ‘0’) will be identical.


he UPC-A barcode was the original format for product barcodes. As demand in Europe, Asia, and Australia started growing, country codes were added.

Barcode Nomenclature in Odoo:

Odoo supports Barcode Nomenclatures. This module adds support for barcode scanning and parsing. The barcodes are interpreted using the rules defined by a nomenclature. It is implemented for three applications as of POS, and for stock in events. 

First, you can install the Point of Sale module in your database. At that time you can set barcode nomenclature in the PoS module.

You can set barcode nomenclature from the module. Go to Point Of Sale ->Configuration -> Point of sale and select your PoS interface. Under the IoT Box / Hardware category, you will find Barcode Scanner and tick on this checkbox then click on save button.

Pos Barcode

Barcode nomenclatures are the rules that are used to create a barcode. Now you can choose Conversion type according to your need.

PoS Barcode 1 1

Firstly, you have to click on Add a line button. Now create a rule and fill the following details like Rule Name, Sequence, type, encoding, Barcode Pattern. You should specify the rule name. At that time you can specify the type of the barcode nomenclature. You can set the Weighted Product as the type. Barcode pattern represents the structure of barcode. The user can design the pattern. EAN-13 represents the ending of the barcode.

In Odoo, usage of the barcode is in the following areas:

For Inventory:

Now you can set the barcode scanner in the inventory module. If we use the barcode in inventory is of great help. The operations which are used to manage stock in the warehouse can be simplified and can be made faster with the help of barcodes. 

Go to Inventory -> configuration -> settings -> operations -> Barcode Scanner

The interface of the barcode module is given below.  Now you can scan the operation barcode to the barcode module. Whereas you scan an operation type, the module will ask for scanning the source location.

It further proceeds to scan the products, in case if the product has a package, it scans its a barcode.

One can increase the count of the product via scanning the product barcode again.

For Event:

This module adds support for barcodes scanning to the event management system. 

Event Barcode

Event 1

It is the way in which the tickets are scanned through barcodes. Wedding is just an example of the event created.
