Catalog by Barcode Images
In short, it’s a super-fast way to build an auction. You can pre-print barcode labels from within Simple Auction, affix the label to the lot, and then take a picture of the lot label. Now you can take as many subsequent pictures of the lot as required. Repeat this process for each lot. When you plug that camera (or memory card) into your computer Simple Auction will read the barcodes from the images and import all the non-barcode images into the correct lots automatically (no manual entry required).
