ComicBase Barcode Scanners
Enter your comics four times faster with a barcode scanner, combined with the advanced barcode entry features of ComicBase Professional and ComicBase Archive Edition.
Each of these scanners works with a standard USB connection and comes with a comics-optimized setup sheet to get you up and running in seconds.
ComicBase has always been pretty easy to get around, but now
you can kick it into overdrive by using the program’s built-in
barcode support. The program now comes built-in with tens of
thousands of EAN and UPC codes to help you find and enter your
comics, and new codes are released as part of the downloadable
updates each week.
The fastest way to enter comics is with the ComicBase Professional and Archive Edition’s Batch > Add Issues to Inventory command (Ctrl + I). This lets you scan in
the barcodes (UPC, ISBN, or ComicBase-created) from a whole
stack of comics, and enter them into your inventory all in one
ComicBase Professional and Archive Editions also include a Batch > Sell Comics (F9) command which lets ComicBase work like a simple
of Sale Cash Register system. Just bleep in the comics you
to sell, and ComicBase will total up the sale, complete
sales tax and shipping charges. It will can even print an
sales receipt! Then, once the sale is completed, the comics
are automatically deducted from your inventory.
All editions of ComicBase also let you use a comic’s barcode to go directly to that particular
issue from any title in ComicBase. Just choose ComicBase’s Jump
command (Ctrl + J), scan in the comic’s barcode, and
ComicBase will pull up that issue’s information. From there, you can edit or view the issue--or just type a number from 0 to 9 on your computer's keyboard and instantly set that number as they quantity in stock for the selected issue.
For older comics (typically pre-1992) without barcodes, ComicBase
also allows you to print a barcode on any price label, or on
ComicBase’s Comic ID Labels:
