UPC/EAN/GTIN Code Generator

Description

Generate UPC/EAN/GTIN codes for WooCommerce products.

This plugin was designed to achieve 2 major purposes:

  1. Assign codes for all your existing products automatically.
    So, you don’t have to open each WooCommerce product and add the UPC/EAN code manually.

  2. Assign codes for newly created products.
    So, when you create a new product — the code will be added to the product automatically.

In plugin settings you will need to specify barcode type (EAN or UPC) and the product field where to store the code.

UPC is used in USA and contains 12 digits.
EAN is used wordlwide and contains 13 digits.

You can generate codes into product SKU field or into any other product field as plugin integrated with serveral barcode plugins.
Also you can specify custom field name to use any other product field for UPC/EAN generation.

After you selected required code type, save the settings and then press «Assign codes» button.
In opened popup you will see progress how much products were processed.
As soon as codes are generated you can close the window and check your products for generated UPC/EAN codes.

For the new products UPC/EAN barcode will be generated automatically as soon as you save/publish the product.

Generated codes are valid (have correct the last checkum digit) and ready for using in barcode generation tools.

However, from legal point of view free UPC/EAN codes should be used only internaly (inside your website/company).

Plugins creates codes for variations too ?

Yes, each variation will have its own UPC or EAN field. Field will be created as soon as plugin is installed.
You can find this field empty if you didn’t start «code generation» process yet.

This plugin is great, it directly, and easily solves a big issue in my work flow that I’ve been having. We deal with bulk products that often don’t have barcodes or SKUs from the manufacturer, so after adding the products I would have to use a 3rd party subscription site to help me generate UPC codes that I would then paste into my product edit page. This plugin helps solve that by having everything right there in the same screen for me, I never have to leave Woo, and it even generates codes for my old products that don’t have any data in the SKU field (products I forgot, or from way back when we originally started with Woo) Light weight plugin and the one or two times I reached out to support I always have a clear and concise response to my issue extremely fast. Plugin settings and options are straight forward and extremely well laid. You can tell this was coded correctly. They are really good developers which is becoming more and more difficult to find these days. Excellent plugin, definitely will continue to use it!
