Visit the Ticket Barcodes section to find out more about barcodes

Tickets can be scanned using the FooEvents Check-ins apps or by connecting a USB or Bluetooth barcode scanner to your computer and doing check-ins via the FooEvents Express Check-in plugin.

Scanning using the FooEvents Check-ins apps

The barcode scanner uses the mobile device’s built-in camera and operating system libraries to scan ticket barcodes.

Follow these steps to scan a ticket using the FooEvents Check-ins apps:

  1. Open the app and connect to your store
  2. Navigate to the event
  3. Select the barcode icon
  4. A camera view will display, hold the device approximately 10cm – 30cm (4″ – 12″) above the barcode
  5. Scan the ticket and check-in the attendee
  6. Enable the Auto check-ins feature to speed up check-ins

In addition to using the built-in camera, you can also connect a handheld Bluetooth barcode scanner to the FooEvents Check-ins apps for the best accuracy and scanning speed.
