Finale doesn't generate GS1 registered UPCs, instead, we generate generic UPC formatted numbers. Our shortcodes are a 12 digit internal code that's in a valid UPC format.
When a new product is created, Finale will automatically create a new "Finale Short Code" which is an internal code in the standard UPC form for each unique product. Additionally, a new Finale Shortcode is created for each new packing and/or lot id.
If your products already have barcodes on them, Finale can be easily configured to allow the scanner to read them.
