128 GS1, GS1 Databar, UPC Coupon Mac Barcode GeneratorBased on decades of experience with all things barcode, Softmatic is excited to announce Softmatic Coupons. Softmatic Coupons for Mac is your one stop solution to create all types of coupon barcodes.
Supported coupon barcodes:
The app provides an easy to use entry mask for all relevant fields, like company prefix, offer code, save value etc. All data entry is verified against the GS1 specs so that it's impossible for the user to create invalid coupons. All settings can be stored as presets, so it's easy to recreate coupons if so desired.
The created codes can be exported as vector (EPS, SVG) or raster image (TIFF, PNG). The app handles all necessary conversion and check digit routines automatically.
The number of coupon codes you create with Softmatic Coupons is unlimited. The app does not require online access. Purchase price is a one time payment, no subscription required!
Anatomy of a GS1 Databar coupon barcodeThis section is for reference only; Softmatic Coupons constructs the code automatically. We use the sample Databar (subtype Expanded Stacked) from above. Decoding the coupon barcode yields:
In plain English: Save 35c on purchase of one (1) package of product. Offer expires Aug. 13, 2011.
* Scanning Databar Expanded Stacked requires a dedicated 2D barcode scanner or imager. Alternatively, an online service like DataSymbol can be used for scanning and decoding coupon barcodes. Mobile phone scanner apps will usually not be able to decode this type of barcode.
Softmatic Coupons is currently under development. A release date has not been set.
