Scan a barcode

What can you exchange for products using a barcode scanner?I just wanted to scan literally three barcodes from my wedding reception gifts to return them because we had received duplicates and we didn’t know where they had been purchased. The app was great that you could search it a number of different ways-except for the fact that I could take the barcode number without the app and search it via Google because that is literally what the app does-and I found one gift and it was quicker than if I had typed it myself so for that I was grateful. Then I went to scan the second-yes second gift out of three- and it wouldn’t let me without subscribing! I can’t scan more than once before being bombarded and asking for money?? Nope. So I deleted the app promptly and I have manually searched up the items. Same exact products and searches appeared on my screen and it took an extra 30 seconds, but it’s better than subscribing to something you aren’t even sure if you can cancel. So my advice? Don’t get the app, copy the number into google. It’s exactly what the app does. Plus, how often do you have to scan barcodes anyways?

BARCODE

Different industries have standards of barcode types to use. For labeling products in retail EAN and UPC are used. Use ISBN, ISSN & Bookland for books and periodicals. Use UCC-128, EAN-128 or SSCC-18 for labeling shipping boxes. Note that industry standard is not necessarily the same as the barcode symbology. ISBN, ISSN are undustry standarts that are based on EAN barcode symbology. UCC-128, EAN-128 and SSCC-18 use Code 128 barcode. In general if the items are to be scanned or sold via retail then the best barcode type to use would be the UPC or EAN barcodes. Consider also the amount of data that you require, if alphanumeric is required then Code 39 or code 128 is the best option. Also consider the size of the items you are barcoding and the system you will be using as 2D barcodes are much smaller but may not be supported by your system or that of your supply chain partners.
