Switch barcodes on/off within settings to accommodate different inventory tracking preferences. This flexibility allows businesses to customize how they manage product identification and tracking through barcode usage.

Barcodes can be switched ON and OFF from Settings screen > Barcodes in Katana.

Barcodes are included in the Standard, Professional, and Professional Plus plans (see more about subscription plans here). If you are using the Starter plan, you will be asked to confirm a change to a higher plan.
