Which is the better way to print tickets with barcode or activate ticket selling with barcode

Bar code printing means that when selling tickets, tickets are printed on the spot through a bar code printer. In addition to printing bar codes, tickets also print text information such as ticket name, ticket price, number of people, date and validity period;
