If you connect a USB scanner directly into a tablet's own mini-USB port, then you will not be able to use the same port to keep the device charged. Read more about how we addressed this challenge.
For clients that have a high throughput of customers, linking the Gain Loyalty app to a fixed barcode scanner will help make the checkout process significantly slicker.
We can now provide a package with a barcode scanner, a USB Bluetooth adapter, cables and a dual USB charging plug.
Whilst the adapter will work with an Apple iPad, Apple devices generally don't allow access to the on-screen keyboard to work while connected to an external keyboard or scanner.
Consquently, we recommend using an Android device if adopting this approach.
We can also supply the Bluetooth USB adapter as an individual product for anyone wanting to use it in other situations, such as linking a keyboard, mouse, magnetic card-reader or gaming peripherals.
