Frequently Asked Questions

What is a price check?

A price check allows you to use Universal Product Codes (UPCs) to identify how much a specific item of stock is priced at. Depending on your price check system and availability of customer-facing price check kiosks, a price check can be performed by a member of staff or even the customer themselves. As the barcode is used to identify the product, your price checking software will reference your product database and use it to display the required information you’ve set up to display. While price is the most common, it can also be used to show stock on hand, sizes, and alternate product colors.

How to do a price check?

How you do a price check will depend on your price checking system. Your price checking software will use each item’s Universal Product Code (UPC) to find its corresponding entry in your database and from there display all information including price. If however, you have a customer-facing price checking solution, then your customers are able to access this information directly from your sales floor themselves. Once again, it’s up to the configuration of your price checking software as to which product information is extracted alongside the price.

What role does a barcode scanner play in a price check?

A barcode scanner is designed to read each item’s Universal Product Code (UPC). Your price checking software then accesses your database, finds the corresponding entry, and displays your chosen data on a connected monitor. Premium price checking software can also integrate with maps and your other physical locations, allowing your or your customer to easily locate and even order the product directly. Barcode scanners are essential physical price checking tools that are a part of your overall price checking system.

What does UPC stand for?

UPC stands for Universal Product Code. This is the standard barcoding system used by retail stores throughout the world and if a product has a barcode, then it’s most likely a UPC. Barcodes store and communicate information about a product, including price, sizes, colors, and the like. All of the information that you’ve set up your database to track and your price checking software to recall.

What is the UPC?

What is a UPC barcode?

UPCs (Universal Product Codes) are sometimes described simply as barcodes for convenience. However, a UPC barcode is once again an incorrect term because the acronym UPC is describing the barcode itself. If you see the term UPC barcode, refer to the definition of UPC above. The UPC (Universal Product Code) is the standard barcoding system used by retail stores. Each scannable UPC-A barcode is made up of a unique strip of black and white bars above a sequence of 12 numerical digits.

Where is the UPC?

Each individual product within your database has its own unique barcode known as a UPC. This means that even variants of the same product such as different sizes or colors will all feature entirely unique UPCs. UPCs are most commonly printed on the product’s packaging or in some cases, directly onto an out of sight part of the product itself. If your packaging is already printed without incorporating the UPC, you’re easily able to stick printed barcode labels individually onto each item.
