An alternate to using the check-in app is a USB bar code scanner connected to a computer

Updated over a week ago

For Class based gyms, use our Check-in app on a tablet mounted to your front desk, however, if you just run an open-gym type scenario where you do not need to track attendance by class but simply verify if the member has a valid active plan, you can issue them barcode cards and scan with a USB barcode scanner connected to your front desk computer.


Any USB barcode scanner should work. Available for around $20.
If you plan to use Member App QR code to scan make sure your scanner can read QR codes and Barcode. Available here


Any plastic card with sequential barcodes between 6 and 12 numbers. (Numerical codes only)
Here is one option to order custom barcode cards.

How to check members in using Members App QR Code or a Bar code

In the latest version of the PushPress Members app you can access a QR code on the main screen.

  • Click on the above location in the app to open the Member Specific QR Code. Then scan the code just as you would when using the checkin process above for bar codes.
