What scanner do I use?

inFlow Cloud for Android/iOS can be used to scan items in and out, create and pick sales orders as well as create your products. We’re working on adding more functionality to the mobile app; in the meantime you can use a barcode scanner / scan gun with inFlow Cloud for Windows (both desktop and web app).


inFlow works with a range of barcode scanners including ones made by Motorola, Metrologic, Symbol and other Manufacturers. As a general rule of thumb, most “plug and play” scanners should work fine (i.e. USB connector or USB wireless receiver, plug it in, installs itself).

You can check some out on Amazon.com here.

If you’re interested in a wireless scanner, we have tested a few models and have some setup tips and suggestions for wireless scanners.


Please note: inFlow Cloud does not work with batch / RFID scanners.
