You can mark one or more packs as Free sample in your warehouse.


This article collects all the possible "Free Sample" actions available in the Wholesaler FMD application:

  • Single scan
  • Multiple scans
  • Bulk scan
  • Scan for order


The available actions depend on the application setup. For more information, see Movilitas Mobile for Wholesaler FMD - Overview.


Note: The procedures described below take the use case when the operator scans the items by using the camera of the mobile device. For mobile devices with built-in scanners, the scanning-related GUI buttons may not be displayed and the user needs to press the physical button on the device to scan.
