A barcode is a machine-readable code, usually numbers or a pattern of parallel lines on a commodity. They are used to quickly identify merchandise and are typically used in retail stores as part of the purchase process and in warehouses for tracking and managing the inventories. Information stored on the barcodes varies from item price, weight, date of manufacture, expiry, manufacturer’s name, and any other customized information.
