If you have barcodes for your products, you can scan them to automatically update your overlays in real-time. This allows you to be more spontaneous in your lives. No need to queue your overlays up before you go live.
Here is a 2-min demo of how to use the overlays with barcodes
Just scan your products during your live and your overlay will automatically update.
This is a great way to engage with your audience. Shoppers might notice a product behind you and want you to talk about it. You can grab it, scan it, and your shoppers will automatically know what to comment along with the price, variant options, etc
If you don't already have barcodes, you can use Shopify's “Retail Barcode Label” app to make them. It’s free and just does the basics. You can manually create barcodes in a few clicks to all products that don’t currently have barcodes. And you can print out barcodes as well.
If you don't have a barcode scanner, this one is only $35 and works well: https://amzn.to/3mNBMcF
