FAQ's - Top six

Q:   Can I use my old barcode labels ? I have thousands of them that I paid to have printed and I don't want to just bin them,
A:   Yes you can, so long as they have unique serial numbers on each barcode label then yes there fine.
Q:   I want to start using my iPhone rather than typing into the computer - can I actually do that ? Does it work ?
