Barcode Font
ClickPOS uses a special font (called, 3 of 9 Barcode) to convert Barcodes you nominated for non-barcoded products in your product catalogue to scan-able barcodes.
In order to print these barcodes, you need to download the following Font. The font will be available in your Fonts list, and you can use it just like other fonts in Word, Excel etc.

Here is what the font looks like.

When introducing new product lines, ClickPOS requires that all products must have a unique barcode. Some products dont come with barcodes, so you have an option of making up your own, and further ability to print adhesive barcode labels to stick onto the products. In turn a speedy sale process. Some clients like to create a label for all their products. Such as giftware etc. 
1. Create your own product labels for pricing, As you add stock, the label printer will print pricing lables with barcodes on them.

Barcode hardware

Most barcodes have plug and play factory settings.

The Carriage Return settings on barcode scanner.

One of the common settings is the Carriage Return action (or simply hits the Enter key automatically) when a barcode is scanned.
If this is not set, then use the Manual that comes with the scanner to change the factory settings to perform a carriage return. So when scanning items to sell, you can scan one after another. This avoids hitting Enter key on your keyboard, or the OK button, after you scan each product. Try if its set by opening Word, and scanning several times, the new barcode being scanned should appear on the next line, if so Carriage return is set.
