I can't seem to get the scanner to work. What can I do?
The iPad2 and iPod touches have very low resolution cameras. It is possible to get them to work with the Zbar scanner but it is fairly difficult. You have to make sure that you have a very steady hand and the lighting has to be very good for it to properly detect the EAN code.

The pic2shop scanner is used in the same way that the Zbar scanner is (meaning, you start the process from BC). Instead of staying within the app, however, it will open pic2shop and then transfer back to BC after it reads the code.
You can select the scanner you wish to use by following these instructions:
