Re: POS Module and Barcodes

Unfortunately Transforming is not a solution for retail, particularly if you are targeting the US. That would require a secondary step of printing out new barcodes and sticking them over the printed barcode supplied by the manufacturer. This adds additional costs and opens up a greater possibility for error.

I understand that this product was developed in Europe, and much of the world moved to EAN13 a long time ago, but in the states not all manufacturers are EAN13 compliant. About 10% of the products I carry do not conform. Forcing EAN13 barcodes is very shortsighted on the part of the Odoo team. Why would you force any kind of restriction like this on a product that is touted for its flexibility? It should be a configuration setting allowing the functionality to be turned on or off. My developers are working on a alternative, but this constraint nearly caused us to exclude odoo from consideration. The odoo folks will find it a challenge to increase their market share with US retailers with this feature (bug) in place, if that is indeed a goal.

When loading the products there an option to transform any barcode to a valid EAN13 is below the barcode option in more details .

Hi community,

I am using Odoo v8 with the POS for a retail store. I am trying to use the barcode scanner but I am having trouble since the products on my store have barcodes of 8,11,12,13 and 14 characters and Odoo only works with valid ean13 codes. 

Is there a way to bypass all these checks and validations and just have it compare the barcodes of the scanned product with the one stored in my product catalog. 

Greetings,
