Hi,
No.
There are many bar code standards. Maybe you can start here:

The easiest approach, I suppose, is to load a free barcode font and use it to produce the barcode. Then make a VIP code which simply writes in a the picture what you want.

I tested by writing with the font (barcode Code 39) from the address above in picture produced with VIP. Mobile telephone's (Android) barcode scanner could interpret the code.
