Typical Use Cases

When end users will not be using a native mobile app, they can simply browse to a website from a camera-equipped device, scan barcodes and input the results into the web application.

See how in these demos.


When your customers don’t have your app, you can still create a deeper engagement by offering a web barcode scanner for use cases such as:

  • Product registration
  • Look up products
  • Scan loyalty cards
  • Gift registry

If your app runs in a browser as opposed to a native app, you can add scanning functionality by adding the SDK for the Web to power use cases such as:
