Welcome to Scan2Read


Scan2Read is a technology that allows you to print small 2D barcodes on Posters, in magazines, or place in television adverts, that when scanned with a mobile phone turn in to full documents or takes the visitor to a web page.

Scan2Read is a cut-down version of Scan2Buy. A Scan2Read account is used by those who want clients to scan a 2D barcode and be presented with a PDF or webpage, rather than a payment page like with Scan2Buy.

If you wish to broadcast on television a Scan2Buy account will be needed. 2D barcodes suitable to television broadcast are specially created depending on the aspect ratio of the broadcast. This ensures that the codes (that look different to the ones above) are readable by mobile devices on both 4:3 and 16:9 television sets. Please contact us if you wish to see a sample.
