Our online barcode API is hosted and runs from Amazon’s AWS computing platform, giving you not only fast speeds but also security. AWS computing infrastructure incorporates end-to-end SSL/TLS encryption, making it unusable if accessed by unauthorized third parties.
Credit Based Pricing
We do not charge you a license fee for using our advanced QR code maker, we use credit-based pricing. This method allows you to pay for the services, instead of buying the API tool. That makes it convenient for both small and large businesses, looking for ways to optimize their production costs.
Run Barcode Generator API Job in the Background
You can run our barcode generator in Sync mode for less than 25 seconds, or in Async mode for over 25 seconds. We recommend that you generate your bar codes in Async mode if you plan to generate over 100 pages of barcodes.
Otherwise, the API job may timeout after 25 seconds and return an error, when generating QR codes, UPC barcodes, ISBN barcodes, among others. To enable Async mode, set the “async” input parameter to “true”.
How to Upload File and Use QR Barcode Generator API
Step 1: Upload File
Use “/file/upload/get-presigned-url” to get an upload URL – “presignedUrl”, and an access URL – “URL”, which you can use to upload and access your file respectively.
Step 2: Get Upload and Access URLs
Use “PUT” to upload your file to “presignedUrl”, and access it using “URL” from Step 1.
Step 3: Call API method to in Sync or Async Modes
Call API method with “URL” param from Step 1 as input, and set “async” param to “true”. That will return an output URL/s, and a job Id. The jobId identifies the background job the API method has created.
Step 4: Check Job Status
To get a success alert, use the “/job/check” to get a “success” status when the 2D barcode generator completes the job.
Step 5: Access Jobs
