Pointy integrates with your Clover POS by collecting all of your product’s barcode numbers and finding an image and description to match each one. Therefore, for Pointy to work well, your Clover inventory needs to have associated barcode numbers. These must be manufacturer codes (UPC or EAN codes), rather than codes you have created yourself.

There are three ways to add barcode numbers to your Clover POS:

1. Modify An Existing Item

Warning: If you have already entered your own custom-made non-manufacturer barcodes into the 'Product Code' section then adding the UPC barcode number will overwrite them. 

Step 1: 

  • If you already have products on your Clover POS, but have not added your UPC barcodes, simply go to the Inventory App and tap on the Items tab to find the product you want to modify. 

Step 2: 

  • Enter the barcode number into the Product Code field using your handheld USB barcode scanner or by typing the number manually.
  • You can also scan the barcode in using your integrated Clover Scanner. Activate the scanner by tapping the scanner symbol at the lower left corner of the Clover device screen. Hold the item above the device with the UPC code facing the camera and scan.

2. Create A New Item 

Step 1: 

  • Go to the Inventory App and tap on the items tab. 
  • Click on “Add Item”.

Step 2:

  • Enter the barcode number in the ‘Product Code’ field by scanning it with your handheld barcode scanner or typing it in.
  • You can also scan the barcode in using your integrated Clover Scanner. Activate the scanner by tapping the scanner symbol at the lower left corner of the Clover device screen. Hold the item above the device with the UPC code facing the camera and scan. 
  • You can add other information such as product name and description but these details will not be used on your Pointy Page. We source all of this information through our databases.
