How to use a USB barcode scanner with your iPad and Vend POS

Kelly Migro - Thursday, October 20, 2011

As Vend POS will work on an iPad I have been wondering how you could use a bar code scanner with an iPad, there are Bluetooth barcode scanners but they can be pretty expensive and not 100% proven to work with the iPad and Vend POS.  @vendhq shared a post on twitter the other day of how to attach a USB barcode scanner to your iPad. 

If you are an iPad user you will know that there are no USB ports, Apple have released an iPad Camera Connection Kit which retails for AUD $35, this has two adaptors which plug into the dock connector port. One allows the memory card from your digital camera to be inserted to allow uploading of photo's the other has a USB interface.

Using the USB adaptor, you can then plug in a USB barcode scanner and scan away.  It can then be used for doing stock take throughout a store or great for a mobile business for scanning stock for sale.

So if you are thinking about setting up a POS system, you can now use Vend, your iPad and a USB scanner life is getting easier!
