Add multiple Barcodes to PDF using Zapier and PDF4me

Barcodes are gaining popularity in the digital world. They are handy in automating a lot of processes as they can embed machine-readable data. We see barcodes or QR codes being used by several industries to fasten the process of data transfer. Often we see articles containing multiple barcodes or QR codes. When you want to apply multiple barcodes to a large number of documents, the job needs automation.

PDF4me’s Integration for Zapier{target=\_blank}{rel="noopener nofollow"} lets you automate the process of adding multiple barcodes to PDF documents. Use the Add Barcode to PDF action along with the other storage Apps in Zapier to automatically add barcodes to documents from this storage. Let us look at a sample of how we can configure the above logic in a Zap.
