Using Barcode Scanners

Our software supports most Plug-n-Play scanners and they can be paired with your Nextar POS Software to speed up the inventorying and checkout process.

Given that some barcode scanners can only read a limited number of characters, before buying one make sure to check if it meets your requirements.

Here's what you need to do to start barcoding:

Connect the barcode scanner to a USB port and wait for Windows to recognize and install it.

Open Notepad on Windows (Click on Start or the Windows orb logo > Programs or All Programs > Accessories > Notepad). Scan one item and check to see if the barcode scanner is working properly.

Done! If the scanner successfully read the barcode information then it is ready to work with Nextar POS.

Your barcode scanner can be used to add new products to inventory, to find and add products to order. All barcode features are displayed in yellow on your Nextar POS Software.
