Why there is no barcode field in the products

I'm glad you came in, ms3.


In QuickBooks Online (QBO), you can use the SKU field in the Products and Services set up. SKUs are alpha-numeric-based and usually consist of eight digits which helps keep track of your inventory.


I'll guide you through below:


  1. Go to the Sales on your left menu and choose Products and Services.
  2. Click New or if the product is already created, click Edit.
  3. Enter the number in the SKU field. Fill in other necessary information.
  4. Click Save and close.

I've added this tutorial on how to setup Product and Service items in QBO: Adding Products and Services, Customers, and Vendors to Lists.


However, if its the actual bar code that you're referring, this is not yet available in QBO.


While we continue to make improvements with the product, I want you to stay updated with news and product releases by visiting the QuickBooks Blog:

You will need an inventory management app with the barcoding feature to integrate with your QBO. You may start exploring from these apps.


If you are a manufacturing company, we may recommend another app.
