Steps for POS reading Embedded Price/Quantity

 Follow the instructions below to set up an Item with Embedded Price/Quantity

  1. From CAS, navigate to Management --> Inventory Classification --> Master Item.
  2. For Embedded price/quantity items it is mandatory to have the same ItemID as the UPC and it must be of 5 digits. Enter other product details.
  3. Navigate to Extended Information --> Select SKU Type as Embedded Price/Quantity
  4. Click Save.

Example:

02PPPPPxCCCCz - This is a 13 digit barcode format known as EAN-13 or UPC-B.

It must begin with “02″ to inform the scanner and POS that this is a price/weight embedded barcode.

The five “P” characters represent the product code, which should be the same on both the scales and the POS.

All five characters must be used, so if a product code is “14″ it will appear in the barcode as “00014″.

The “x” character is known as the price/weight checksum. It is generated by the labeler and provides a way for the price/weight to be verified as correct.

The “C” characters represent the price/weight of the item. An item priced 9.99 would appear as 0999.

The “z” character is a checksum for the code as a whole.

02 PLU (5 Digit) weight ck digit(x) CCCC (Weight) z (barcode ck digit) = 13 digits

0200450xCCCCz

REMEMBER when you create the item, you are just using the 5 digits ItemID/UPC - the other components are automatically understood when the item is designated as Embedded.
