Linnworks Mobile feature is not meant to use a smartphone as a scanning device. It was meant to be used for certain handheld scanner models, the settings of which do not activate the Enter function as soon as something is scanned. In this case, the scan entry field would become available for users to type in their SKUs or barcodes into the interface manually.

Below is a summary of the minimum requirements for a scanner to be compatible with Linnworks:

  • The native application available in Google Play Store requires Android 6 or up. Scanners with a lower version of Android can still access Linnworks Mobile using
  • We recommend using Linnworks Mobile with scanners that have a screen size of at least 5 inches. Using scanners with smaller screens may not give you the best experience. 
  • Wi-Fi support
  • Recommend 4G/5G connectivity for back up in poor Wi-Fi zones

Due to the amount of hardware out on the market Linnworks is not able to recommend a specific scanner, as we would need to have tested each one personally in a live environment.
