Barcode- and QR-Code Scanner

Vouchers and tickets may optionally be checked using a scanner. This is entirely voluntary, as codes can be entered manually or by way of autocompletion. However, using a scanner can be both practical and efficient in some circumstances.

Scanner models

In principle, any standard commercial barcode scanner can be used, provided it is Code 128 compatible. If your vouchers and/or tickets feature a QR code, you need a scanner that can read 2D codes. Should you need new hardware, we recommend the following models: 

Barcode and QR Code scanners (hand scanners)

Datalogic Quickscan QW2420 Scanner KIT for Barcode 128 and QR-Codes


Barcode and QR Code scanners (fixed scanners)

Honeywell Lecteur de codes-barres HF680


Checking the scanner country settings

It is possible that a scanner may be delivered from the manufacturer with an incorrect country configuration. In this event, the scanner may recognise the voucher code with apostrophes (') rather than dashes (-). If this occurs, you can change the country configuration with minimal effort. Please review the instructions in your scanner's manual.
