Tried to use 99 ranch barcode membership via Samsung Wallet then Google wallet both failed with their bad scanners, needs the missing end characters ||barcode||
or add 42 & 6 to upcA 
ie 123456 -> 421234566
looks similar to || but haven't tested if that works.

Could there be some advanced option to enable this or whoever curated memberships/loyalty cards require the barcode end/stop characters?

Had to figure this out myself. Most barcodes are in the 13 digit EAN-13 format, and the prefix/starting 3 digits "042" is for company private/internal codes, most often used for loyalty cards.  The starting 0 is omitted in the USA for compatibility with the first barcodes, 12 digit UPC-A.

99 ranch app barcode is complete but only shows the member digits, omitting the loyalty prefix 042, and the check digit used to ensure accuracy (6 for mine).

Example member ID:

123456789 <9 digits>

Complete barcode:

[0](42)123456789(6) <13 digits, 12 without [0]>

[Fully omitted]

(Invisible but used)

<Digit count>

So always scan to enter membership information since some number may be hidden for simplicity. And you can't manually type in more than 32 digits for some reason (& only 256 character long notes??), only scanning a barcode longer than that works. Scanning a barcode on a different app/website on the same device requires screenshotting then importing from gallery, typing in the visible membership numbers is not 100% reliable.
