[TheQoo] 160809 EX-worker of album store tells you why it's impossible to "barcode sajaegi" and how Hanteo counts the sales

(T/N: This was reposted by another user after reading the OP's post)

This is the post written by fanboy/girl who used to work at the album store explaining why it's impossible to sajaegi with barcodes and how Hanteo counts the sales.txt

Before I begin, I will tell you how our store works. As of April 30th, I no longer work at the store (due to studies)
I worked at the album store inside a large bookstore for about 3 years.

Firstly, this is how Hanteo counts (this is based on our company's standards. They say this could be different from store to store and company to company)
Basically, the distributor is the head office for these album stores.

We have the album distributors (not LOEN, CJ. These distributors literally distribute the albums) who are in between the offline stores.

Gyopo/ Youngpung/ Bandi, etc- the album stores in these bookstores are created by album distributors
Even in the same bookstore chains, they can have different album stores operated by different album distributors. There are about 3~4 major distributors.

Anyway, our company updates the sales volume every hour and this is checked with sales documents (it's a system where the figures are calculated after they're added to the book store's sales) only then the person in charge at the head office sends the figures to Hanteo. If we're really busy today or if we are selling fansign event CDs, we usually update after our closing hour. Then our head office sends the figures for us. The stores usually close at 10PM so I think the head office sends the figures around 11PM.

At least we didn't update after 12AM and add the figures as the sales for the next day...

So I need to talk about barcodes which are related to this. This is updated manually by us and it's not like the barcodes immediately get entered as it gets read by the machine.

Secondly, it's absolutely impossible to do barcode sajaegi.

All products in a store have a barcode and this is not only for albums. Which means every little, hundreds and thousands of these products have their own barcode, right?
Barcodes are just numbers and it was created to help inventory and sales managements using the POS program or ERP program.
Barcodes are really important because this can alter the inventory and sales.
Therefore, it's easier to manage inventory/sales if one product has the same barcode!
But barcode sajaegi is increasing sales by creating many barcodes. This is ridiculous because
For instance - let's say we sell 10 copies this way. This means that 10 of them has to have different barcode and they have to be entered in the system to be marked as sales
But it's expensive to create barcodes. My example was just 10 copies but imagine creating barcodes for thousands of copies...?
Also, this method (barcode sajaegi) can be only used at offline stores but then these would be a provisional sales at the bookstore, shopping center the album store is located at so this is going to require lots and lots of cash since it's sajaegi.. plus you can't increase the sales without actual payments (credit card payments or cash payments).

[PANN] 161222 ohh Jungkook's classmate left a comment too ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

(T/N: These comments (screenshots) are from the previous translation I posted yesterday. "[PANN] 161221 BTS members have clean (predebut) history and they have great personalities so...")

It looks like our boys have great characters... Someone commented that Jungkook has a bad personality and Jungkook's classmate replied this comment. There was another one that said Taehyung smoked and drank but Taehyung's classmate left a comment and he/she deleted his/her comment ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ seriously they're just dying to slander our boys 

Did you say JJK has a bad personality? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's hard for me to provide graduate photo as a proof because I live away from home but I'm Busan native and I graduated from Baekyang Middle school and Baekyang Elementary school. I was in the same class with Jungkook many times. Grade 1, 2, 4, 6 and in Grade 7. I was in the same class with him for 5 times. Seriously if you were a student of Baekyang, you would know what kind of person Jeon Jungkook is so this (your comment) is weirdㅋㅋㅋ He was quiet and he wasn't a loud student so it's quite funny to hear that his personality is like a trash ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Have you ever seen him in real life to talk about him? Ask the past students of Baekyang. Let's see if any one of them think Jeon Jungkook has a trash like personality or if he is a good person~ +1 -3
ㄴ ㅋㅋㅋㅋ but don't you know that people can change? +0 -2

ㄴ it doesn't matter if one has a bad or good personality because our character doesn't change that easily +2 -0
ㄴ to the previous commenter. Jeon Jungkook moved to Seoul when he was in Grade 9 and are you saying that his personality became a trash during his trainee days? Seriously do you think they would have kept him as a trainee without telling him to leave?ㅋㅋㅋ As far as I know Jeon Jungkook rarely attended the Arts High School in Seoul during the year so are you saying he acted like a trash in those few days? Seriously this is f*cking hilarious ㅋㅋㅋ 

I went to Geochang Middle school when I used to live in Geochang during middle school years and one of my classmates became an idol. When I watch his current videos I think his personality is similar to his middle school days. He was very friendly and naive. I really never thought he would become a celebrity ㅋㅋㅋ He used to have Cyworld too and we used to be friends on it. I wonder if his Cyworld is still there ㅋㅋ  +2 -0
ㄴ It's Taehyung
ㄴ but he was just born in Geochang, right? Didn't he live in Daegu? Am I wrong?
ㄴ ah ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Taehyung's called the  Geochang Prince...ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
ㄴ no~ he graduated from Changnam Elementary and Geochang Middle school and then moved to Daegu in his high school year 
ㄴ ㅠㅠ I didn't want to reveal his name but as expected there are too many BTS fans ㅠㅠ ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

(T/N: Cyworld - Korean Facebook by Nate. It used to be very popular before)
