Best Practices

  1. Try to use images that are on a clear white background.
  2. If the symbology (barcode type) within the image is known, select it in Step 1. ONLY if the symbology is unknown, use autodetect (NOTE: AUTODETECT is inefficient and imperfect codes may not be found).

Disclaimer

Scanning via an image is not the most accurate method and some barcodes will not be recognized even though our SDK could possibly read them with the Phone Camera
