The Point-Of-Sale or POS system that I use is the Zettel App it’s a PayPal service. I use PayPal for every phase of my business, from shipping, Inventory control, sales tax, POS Bluetooth card reader, PayPal payments, Venmo and invoicing. You can find the Zettel App in the App store.
I can now print barcodes on price tags and scan them with my iPhone camera.
When I scan the price tag it loads the item into the shopping cart. I click on the cart icon. The customer puts their credit card into the card reader and signs on my phone. When the card reader shows approved, my Bluetooth printer prints the receipt with all my business information.
The information is held in an Excel spreadsheet that’s exported from the Zettel cloud-based inventory software. The Zettel inventory system is setup using your PC. The information is cloud based and is accessible using your cellphone.
The barcode I set up uses 6 numbers this is called the 2of 5 barcode, the first four numbers are used to identify my 20 categories. My inventory is listed uses an alpha numeric code to identify the categories. MR=Men Ring, WR=Women Ring, BR=Bracelet, PN=Pendant, ES=Earring Stud, EW=Earring Wire, EH=Earring Hoop, etc... The numeric part is the position sequence that the letters are in the alphabet.
A=1, B=2, C=3, N=14, R=18, W=23…etc...
The last two numbers in the code are used for identification of the individual items. This allows me to have 1-99 items in each category. If you’re interested, I can provide more information.
