I’m experiencing difficulties scanning barcodes

Here are a few possible solutions if you are having trouble scanning barcodes in FooSales:

  1. Pair the FooSales app with a handheld barcode scanner similar to the ones listed in our hardware page as they are generally able to scan smaller barcodes more accurately due to better optics.
  2. If you’re using regular 1D barcodes on your products, try using QR codes or another type of 2D barcode instead, as they generally produce less scanning errors and can be printed smaller without any negative effects.
  3. Print the barcodes larger and at the highest possible resolution. Use a specialized barcode label printer for best results.
  4. Ensure that there is enough light and contrast when scanning barcodes and try to avoid scanning in lowlight environments.
