About Price Embedded Barcode Scanner

Scan price-embedded barcodes directly into your Shopify POS cart

*WEDNESDAY May 12 2021: If you are using Android, the "New" Shopify POS for Android breaks our app's functionality - please do not update if prompted. If you have an Android device and are encountering issues, please email us at hello@filljoy.co*

Our app enables you to use your mobile device's camera to quickly scan price-embedded barcodes for sell-by-weight products and automatically insert those line items into your Shopify POS cart, complete with the item's weight and price-per-unit - perfect for cheese and fish mongers, butcher shops, delis, and any other businesses that use a label printing scale.

What are price-embedded barcodes?

Price-embedded barcodes, also known as random weight, variable price, or type 2 barcodes, have the item's PLU (price look-up) code and total price encoded into the barcode. These barcodes are typically printed using a label printing scale for sell-by-weight products at a deli counter or butcher, for example.

I have been using this app since their beta testing last summer. This app has been essential to be able to quickly check out customers with weight based items on our POS. Their support is quick, thorough, and they are open to suggestions and changes. They continue to develop the app adding new functionality and adapting to requests. A true joy to use.

Thank you Carlos for the kind review and for being willing to help me beta test the app when I first started! It's been a pleasure partnering together, wishing you and yours the best for 2021.

I run a store selling frozen food, having a solution for me to enable the Shopify to read the PLU barcode is absolutely essential for checking out the weight based product. Glad to find this solution. At first I had a compatibility issue with this app which it could only read a 5 digit SKU but all my products carry 6 digit SKU, emailed to the supporting team and the response was quick and in a day or two they resolved this problem altogether for me to run this app. Highly recommended if you sell weight based product as well.
