Mobile Barcode Scanning

How it works

Mobile Barcode Scanning allows you to scan barcodes on products using an iOS or Android device. Scanning a code will allow the mobile app user to quickly pull-up details about the product or to add to the Cart.

Scanning can be initiated from the Home, Products and Cart Screens.

Adding Barcodes for your Products

In the Zoey Web Admin, go to Products > Attributes and create an attribute called "Barcode".

Then you can add Barcodes on each product or use a CSV import to add Barcodes to your products (example format below).

ABC-123

92304829384910293482349

ABC-456

54930845928349102395849

Once uploaded, the next time your mobile app updates product information it will load the barcodes and allow scanning.

Using a Bluetooth Scanner

Zoey supports Zebra, Socket and most other Barcode Scanners that can connect to your mobile device via Bluetooth.

To use:

  • Connect scanner via Bluetooth to your device,
  • Ensure the device is in HID (keyboard emulation) mode (if applicable)
  • Open the Zoey App, and with the Home or Cart screens open, simply start scanning with your bluetooth scanner.

Any SKU specific options will appear automatically on your mobile device screen.
