The barcode system provides a great deal of convenience to the seller in stages such as stock, sale and obtaining again of commodities as well as subsequent to the payment of the products the consumer purchases, at the time of completion of their shopping.
The barcode system is a product identification system with its character structure that is formed by lines and spaces that are parallel to one another and in various thicknesses. These lines that are belonging to the product are read by optical readers that are connected to the computers. The computer displays these characters that correspond to and previously entered information on the screen. Consequently, all the information in regards to the products is accessed very fast.
Even tough there are many barcode standards used at the present day, the most widely used standards are called EAN-13 which is used over the unit packs and ITF-14 which is used over the shipping units (usually parcels).
