Retailer allows you to automatically send barcode labels to the Barcode Manager or Label Manager when the stock is arrived through Invoice Arrivals.

When adding new stock with the stock wizard, in the screen immediately following the pricing information you can tick the option Print a label for this item when it is arrived?

For existing stock, you can set this up individually by stock item, or in bulk using the stock manager.


  1. On the main screen of Retailer, click on Stock -> Stock Screen.
    Alternatively, on the top menu bar of Retailer, click on Stock Maintenance -> Stock Screen.
  2. Click on the magnifying glass icon and search for the particular stock item.
  3. Click on the Other tab.
  4. Tick the Print Barcode on Arrival option.
  5. Click Save.

For magazines, you'll need to perform the steps above for the parent item AND the most recent issue.
