    Need help regarding Barcode scanner implementation

    by darshpreetkaur891 ·

    Tags: 

    I fond of photography and have been capturing images of various landscapes where ever I go. I am planning to create my website on which I would allow my visitors to download my photos only after agreeing to my terms and conditions and after scanning with barcode reader.

    Is it possible to implement the same? Kindly help

      How many of them own a barcode scanner?

      In reply to Need help regarding Barcode scanner implementation

      While I own one it’s in storage as the project I built was over 10 years ago.

      So few own barcode scanners that I fear your sales will be few.

      Why do this?

        ……have barcode scanner applications or can be downloaded free today. No need to buy a dedicated barcode scanner

          Why would we need a barcode scanner if we are on their web site?

          As it stands they are most likely just posting this as spam SEO.

          It’s possible, of course, to generate a barcode or a QR-code or and put its picture on the screen in a browser.
          Then the user would need to decode the code and have a way to input the result as an answer.

          Can you explain what info in your barcode would contain, what device the user would use to decode it and how the result is returned to your site?

          I will use mobile to scan the barcode and result will be returned using server-side scanning to decode it.

          What an awful idea.

          What about the others that are using their desktop, laptop, etc without a camera? Why complicate the sale process like this?

          Maybe you left out something important like you want them to pay with those QR Coded Apple Gift Card but didn’t tell us.

          Your spam post was dismissed and has drawn some attention from the moderators.

          I do not want to sell my photos instead I want to allow them to use for personal purpose only.

          Then watermark them and be done with it.

          The system you noted is an impediment to getting your name out there. Just watermark them (how is all over the web) and get them out there.

          If you feel these are saleable then on the web site offer a contact method for clean versions. NEVER put these up on the web because they will be gone forever.

          I removed your spammy reply above.

          It wasn’t your thread starter that was considered spam. It was your post about UPC and brands, that was totally off-topic.

          So I’m on your site with my desktop, see your beautiful foto’s and want to download one. I agree to your terms and conditions and get a barcode on the screen.

          Then I would have to get my phone and take a picture of the barcode. Now I have that picture in the gallery of my phone.
          – What must I do then to let your server know about this?
          – What will it do then?

          And why did you say in your thread starter that I had to scan it with a barcode reader? That’s really very different from making a photo with a smartphone.

          You’re too confusing to be taken seriously.

      Yes, can implement this, if your website is created by WordPress then install the Barcode scanner plugin.

        Nonsense.

        In reply to Regarding Barcode scanner implementation

        And needlessly overcomplicated given what the site is about.

        Always give pushback on awful ideas like this. Get the client to share what the goals are.

        Can you imagine sites like Amazon and others implementing such a thing? Me neither.
