Introduction | MAUI Barcode Scanner

The Scanbot Barcode Scanner SDK for MAUI empowers your mobile Android and iOS apps with robust barcode scanning capabilities. For more details, visit our website.

Our ScanbotBarcodeSDK.NET NuGet package includes .NET bindings for the native Scanbot SDKs on Android and iOS. It provides comprehensive support for the majority of features offered by the native SDKs.

The ScanbotBarcodeSDK.MAUI package, built upon ScanbotBarcodeSDK.NET, provides wrappers tailored for MAUI integration. It includes ready-to-use UI screen components for various scanning use-cases.

Package and Pricing Information

The Scanbot SDK can be licensed in several packages.

  • Package 0 provides access to the Scanbot Barcode Scanner SDK.
  • Package 1 includes the Scanbot Document Scanner in addition to the Scanbot Barcode Scanner SDK.
  • Package 2 adds OCR and MRZ scanning capabilities to the Scanbot Document Scanner SDK.
  • Package 3 provides access to the full Scanbot SDK, which includes all features and modules, such as the Generic Document Scanner and Check Scanner.

It's important to note that the Scanbot SDK is available on a fixed-price model. This means that it comes with an annual fixed fee, which is based on the required package and the number of applications or domains the SDK is integrated into. This fee remains the same regardless of how much scanning is performed. You can request a quote here.

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.
