I am getting a scanning error. What do I do?

  • Sometimes the scanner will error on a scan with one of the following messages:
    • Scanner gives a different tone than normal
    • Scanner beeps twice
    • Application flashes red and says that the item is not found or the barcode is unknown.
    • Items which are discontinued or not available to be purchased will indicate"Not available for purchase" within the app when scanned.

These errors normally mean the app may not have been synced. Our recommended best practice is to sync the device when you open the app prior to starting your order. Please sync the app and see if the error goes away. If you still have issues, please contact support.

My scanner isn't pairing with a new device

  • Be sure that you unpair with old device. You may also need to scan the standard product defaults barcode to reset the scanner to standard settings and then pair with the new device. Instructions can be found in the following documents:
