According to google, it allows the phone to display coupon codes...

How is that different to any other app that shows bardcodes?

Im really struggling to work out why it needs a dedicated service.

Thanks for any ideas.

Some stores use a more modern scanner which sometimes might not work with a plain barcode on phone. The beaming service makes it compatible to scan barcodes on phone.

Marvin_1003 - No, that's something different. Barcodes have nothing to do with NFC.

Jsorren - What though? Barcodes are literally black and white pixels. There's nothing more to it. I can make a barcode in paint and it'd still scan.
