Scroll down for the Step-by-Step Guide on how to generate item barcodes for an order
NOTE - if you have a Delivery Method with Print Rules set up, you do not have to use the Generate Barcode option on an order unless you want to generate a new barcode. The Print Rules on an Event and Products will handle automatically generating a barcode. For more info about Print Rules, go here.
KEY TERMS & TIPS:
How do I generate barcodes?
Via the Order page and selecting Generate Barcode. This will then generate the barcode that will be used for the customer's ticket.
See our Step-by-Step guide below for more info.
Do I need to do this for every ticket?
No, not if you have set Print Rules for your Delivery Method on the Event.
Then as long as that Delivery Method has been selected in the booking flow, then the barcodes will automatically be generated for that order.
When would I need to generate barcodes separately?
If a customer says that they haven't received their tickets then you may want to generate a new barcode and resend them the ticket. Doing this ensures that the existing barcode that was originally sent out can't be used, preventing any potential fraudulent use.
There may also be instances where Print Rules have not been set up yet for the Delivery Method, and/or some orders where you do not want to add a Delivery Method or customer details. In which case you will need to generate the barcode and send out tickets after the order has been completed.
How can I see if a barcode has been generated for a ticket?
By clicking into a performance on your event and selecting View Transactions.
Next to each item you will see whether a barcode has been generated for it yet and, if it has, the date and time that the most recent barcode has been generated.
See step 3 in our Step-by-Step guide below for more info.
