Magento 2 Barcode Generator

The usage of barcodes simplifies inventory management, reduces data entry errors, and ensures higher efficiency. Store Manager for Magento includes the functionality to massively generate and print barcode labels as well as create unique identifiers using the Magento 2 barcode generator tool.

In this step by step guide you will learn:

How to use Magento 2 barcode generator to create unique EAN13 and UPC identifiers

When you get barcodes from the manufacturer you can easily upload them using the Store Manager for Magento Product Import Wizard. But what if your supplier doesn’t provide identifiers or you sell the products manufactured locally? Here is how you can create them using Magento 2 Barcode generator tool.


Note Barcode Generator tool is available starting from Store Manager for Magento v.3.32.0.2475 Users who have earlier versions have to upgrade to this or newer versions to access barcode generation functionality.

1. Download Store Manager for Magento

If you haven't got Store Manager installed yet, download the free trial version and establish a connection to your store database. Open the Categories&Products tab to see the list of products.


2. Select products in the grid

Now select the product you want to generate barcodes for. In our example, we already have the EAN-13 and UPC columns displayed. That means that corresponding attributes had been created earlier. If you don’t have the attributes in your store you should create them because generated barcodes must be assigned to them.


Right-click on the selection to see the context menu and run the Barcode Generator tool:

3. Fill in necessary data for EAN-13 or UPC numbers and generate them

Currently, Store Manager allows generating two most popular standards: EAN-13 and UPC. Select the appropriate code and fill in necessary data.

For the EAN-13 you should specify:

  • GSI prefix (country code)
  • Manufacturer code

Select the check box "Overwrite existing values" if you want to replace them with the numbers generated automatically.


Finally you should select appropriate attribute to assign barcode to:
