InComm Activation Barcode
InComm was granted a patent for an innovative new method of printing activation barcodes and packaging prepaid products. With this new technology, the activation barcode for products such as gift cards and prepaid debit cards is made from the combination of portions of a barcode printed in two places: one portion from the packaging and the other from the card housed within the packaging. The barcode portion printed on the card is visible through an opening in the packaging, allowing cashiers to scan and activate the product like they would any other prepaid product. Printing the activation barcode across both the card and the package helps retailers prevent package tampering fraud, according to the company. All retailers in InComm’s network will have access to this new technology.
