2D or not 2D? That is the question

Posted on Mon 29 April 2013 at 4.41PM

We've recently updated the TicketSource Express App for iPhone and Android devices to support ticket scanning of both 1D and 2D barcodes.

2D barcode

The newer 2D barcode (or QRCode) format is generally quicker and more reliable to scan so we'd recommend anyone who uses the mobile app to scan and validate tickets on the door to make the switch. And there's no need to worry about those existing tickets with 1D barcodes, the mobile app will continue to scan and validate those too!

1D barcode

You can set your ticket barcode preferences by logging in to your TicketSource account and selecting the "Event Settings | Ticket Settings" menu option.
