A method for facilitating a wireless transaction, the wireless transaction defined by a purchase action with respect to a product or service, and a fulfillment action associated with the purchase action, the fulfillment action associated with personal bodily entry into or through a physical structure using a wireless communication device, comprising:

  • at a first time, receiving a wireless transaction request from a transaction requester seeking, at a second time, personal bodily entry into or through the physical structure using the wireless communications device, the wireless transaction request initiating a purchase action with respect to the product or service over a wireless communication link;

    in response to the wireless transaction request and an approval of the purchase action with respect to the product or service, receiving over the wireless communication link, by the wireless communication device, a first transaction code capable of being optically scanned for authorizing the fulfillment action, the first transaction code being a two dimensional (2D) image that encodes information in two dimensions;

    at the second time, optically scanning the first transaction code from the visual display of the wireless communication device to permit the personal bodily entry into or through the physical structure to partially complete the wireless transaction;

    receiving over the wireless communication link, by the wireless communication device, a second transaction code capable of being optically scanned; and
