Posted by Huyen Le Thi on 11 June 2014 05:26 PM
If your products already have barcode and you want to use it for searching in X-POS, follow these steps:

Step 1: Create an attribute to store the barcode:
- Go to: Catalogue > Attributes > Manage attributes
- Add an attribute, make sure it is set with "Unique Value" to "Yes".
Step 2: Edit CSV file with product data
- Create CSV file with one column with all product SKUs (you can for example create this file by doing a product export)
- Add a column to store your barcode (the column name should match the attribute you've created in Magento admin)
- Fill in the barcodes for all the products
Step 3: Import the edited CSV file:
- Go to: System > Import/Export > Import
- Set entity type to Product
- Select the CSV file created in previous step
Step 4: Choose barcode field for search in X-POS
- Go to: Sale > POS > Settings > General options > Search > Search by
- Choose the attribute you created to store barcodes in
- Save config
