Updated over a week ago

Follow steps below to enter and display barcodes:

1. Got to product edit. Enter a barcode in a product field or use variants barcode field

Read how to add new fields to the product category if you don't have a barcode field or variant options.

2. Edit templates or catalog text box to insert barcode image for your field

  • Use {{BarcodeImage}} or {{BarcodeImageExt}} to display a barcode image, if the field name is different from Barcode (e.g. MyField) use {{BarcodeImage:MyField}} or {{BarcodeImageExt:MyField}}

  • BarcodeImageExt - display image with a code text below, BarcodeImage - only image

  • Variant fields should be inside {{Variants}}{{/Variants}} iterator as in this example. Read more about product expressions.

{{SKU}} - {{Option}}
