Originated from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated by many each year with activities like tick-or-treating, carving pumpkins, donning costumes and eating sweet treats. For many Halloween is a big event, and as a business you need to make sure you’re prepared for the holiday period.

Whether your business is in retail, where you’re preparing for an influx of customers, or hosting an event, we’ve got the devices to aid you and your business in running smoothly. 




With any public holiday, you expect there to be an influx of customers to your store. You don’t want to keep your customers waiting in line after they’ve chosen their perfect Halloween outfit or sweet treats. Our choice of scanners can help keep your point of sale time down to a minimum.

Inventory Tracking

You also need to think about your inventory. You don’t want to let your customers down by having out of stock items, as this leads to disappointment, financial loss and potential loss of future custom. Keep on track of your stock with our range of mobile computers.

ePOS Software

Is your electronic point of sale software slowing you down? Maybe it’s time to upgrade to a modern and simple to use system on Android to help you drive sales in time for Halloween. MyTill has many great features that fit in with the growing needs of your business. 



Your Halloween Event

Halloween events should be an enjoyable night and a spectacle to those who attend. Responsible planning is crucial to ensuring safety and making sure your event runs smoothly.


Mobile Point of Sale: Before your event, you need to think about who will be operating the display, have they been trained correctly and have they got the means for all types of payment? It is getting less and less common for people to carry cash around today, so we suggest you invest in an mPOS method of payment.

You will also need to make sure your stock of entry wristbands is sorted. A shortage of wristbands for guests could result in disappointment, financial losses and inadequate tracking! Here at The Barcode Warehouse, we have a large range of varying wristbands.

Ticket and Wristband Printers

Another point to consider is whether you would like your entry wristbands or tickets to be personalised, unique or printed? Perhaps investing in a wristband printer or a ticket printer could save you money if this is an annual event. 











Ticket Tracking

Lastly, tickets. Do your tickets have barcodes on? This is a great way to track who has come into your event and to also rule out any fake tickets, preventing any possible losses. A mobile computer would be ideal for ticket scanning; receive ticket information instantly after scanning.
