Can you specify the barcode length?

I'm trying to figure out how to make the generated barcodes be shorter (4 digits).  The current  codes are coming out at 8 digits which make them too long for the stickers for our smaller products.  Is there a way to do this automatically or do I have to create them outside of Shopify and then upload?  Thanks!

Hey Teresa,

I'm Alex, your friendly neighbourhood Guru at Shopify.

Outside of using custom barcode numbers as set in your admin, I don't believe you can specify the actual amount of characters sued below 8 (assuming yours are affixing a string of 0s).

What you can try is exporting those barcodes to the dymo printer software and customize the barcodes further as-per this support document.

Hopefully that helps! All the best.
