This might be something only AP peeps could know but
We are no longer allowed to use that, as it shows up on and adversely affects Shortage Indicator. Every night, the closing TL and ETL pulled up the POS Report checking for No Barcode sales, and if found, the TM who used it is coached his/her next shift. We HAVE to find a corresponding DPCI or that item for it to be rung up.
My store is not allowed to do 999 either. We got in trouble for using it too much. Now we HAVE to have a DPCI for everything regardless of price :/I know that the option still exists, however we are not allowed to use it due to the fact that it affects Unidentified Sales which affects Shortage Indicator.
It was a couple yrs ago (& I left the front end nearly a yr ago).The POS wont allow you to do "no barcodes" for anything over $19.99 anymore. Interesting how he managed that with a television.

Using a dept & sku (9999 for the item #) used to let you apply it to items over $20 but was frowned upon.
Just because you COULD do it doesn't mean you SHOULD.
AP used to go through & see which cashiers were using it too freely & would coach them.
We have teacher's planners in one spot, that I had been selling all of August, suddenly come up as "do not sell before 9/7". Baloney. So they have to be put in without a barcode to get around that.
