Package and Pricing Information

The Scanbot SDK consists of three products:

  • Barcode Scanner SDK: Provides access to all barcode and QR code scanning functionalities.
  • Document Scanner SDK: Includes document scanning with user guidance, automatic capture, cropping UI, document recognition from still images, image filters and PDF/TIFF creation.
  • Data Capture Modules: A comprehensive bundle that includes the MRZ Scanner SDK, OCR SDK, Check Scanner SDK, VIN Scanner SDK and additional scanning modules.

All products are available on a fixed price model. In other words, there is a fixed annual fee based on the specific product and the number of applications or domains into which the SDK is integrated. The price remains the same regardless of the number of scans or users. Please contact us for a personalized quote.


Operating System

  • iOS 13 and higher


  • Xcode 14.0 and higher

No Internet Connection Required

The Scanbot SDK works completely offline. It does not even contain any networking code. This can easily be verified by routing all networking traffic coming from the app through a proxy. All data generated by the Scanbot Barcode Scanner SDK is only stored on the end user's device and in absolutely no case ever transferred to a server / cloud service controlled by us. You as the customer will need to take care of uploading the scans / data to your backend, if desired.

Simulators / Emulators

While it is possible to test your app with the Scanbot SDK on simulators/emulators, we strongly recommend using real Android/iOS devices. Depending on the emulated camera you may not be able to test/evaluate the full functionality of the Scanbot SDK.
