Using A Barcode Scanner For The Order Entry

If you want to add paper orders to an existing job, the fastest way is to use a simple barcode scanner. It does not have to be a Bluetooth scanner, a simple one with a cable that you connect to your device will perfectly work.  

  1. First, go to the Settings page of your job, click Manage Names. On the top right of the page, click Export > PDF with barcodes, then print the list.  List-of-names-GotPhoto-Sell-photos-the-complete-solution__15_.pngCapture.PNGAlternatively, you can print and scan the QR cards.

  2. Now, go to the price profile you want to apply, click Edit Price Profile, click Actions on the top right, then Download product list with barcodes as PDF. This will pull up a breakdown of your price list. Each package and each individual product shows a barcode. On the top of the list, you find the Next and the Save barcode.  If you have prepay job, the prepay price profile will be applied in the Order Entry, in a proofing job, the job's price profile will be applied. In the Advanced Job Settings ( Settings > Actions > Advanced Job Settings), you can also set up a different price profile for the order entry. 
  3. Workflow: Go to the Order Entry by clicking Orders (top menu) > Order Entry. Click "New Order" Based on the shipping type you offer / the customer selected Direct shipping or Batch Shipping (Personal Order are only for your own purposes and will be directly shipped to you or the delivery address you enter.

In case you need to go back up to an image, just click on the image with your cursor. When you're done with the order for that specific student, scan the code next to Save. Now, you can enter the address and the customer's email.  Finally, hit Save and continue. You can now enter the order for the next student. If the customers' data and email is already saved in the system, you just need to scan the Save barcode, and the order will be saved automatically, here, you can start with the next order immediately. Once you have added all orders, click the Order Entry tab again and hit the Place order(s) now button.  Review-order-collection-GotPhoto-Sell-photos-the-complete-solution__13_.png
