Barcode scanning is part of your phone API. So you start with that. Shopify has no real interest in providing you code to manage scanning since that would imply they support a bazillion Android and iOS things related to the phone camera. If you can wire up bar code scanning in your phone and get the scanned data in your code, THEN you can easily hook up to Shopify API codes to work with inventory, or any other applications where barcode scanning might be useful. Right?

Need Urgent Help from people who do FBA and Retail Using Shopify
 
so our products have xxx barcode printed on our products, but in shopify we have yyy as a barcode , so i want to ensure when on pos we scan xxx the yyy product pops up, so storing 2 barcodes on this product is the only solution I can think of but Shopify doesn't let you do that. the reason is we have amazon fnsku printed on our products and that is alphanumeric and for gmc purposes, we can not put alphanumeric barcodes in Shopify( gmc throws an error ) SO Shopify has a numeric barcode stored , so now on Shopify pos we will be scanning fnsku but it will say product not found coz the product has a numeric barcode in Shopify pos . so using this bridge api is there a way to add or make an app that will search in a custom field also for another field , currently i think when you scan shopify only searches barcode field so can a app be made where in it seraches barcode or another custom field or tag ?

Is this the old Shopify stores a Barcode/UPC code but Amazon only works with their special ASIN number and so you're running into difficulty because for FBA you need to bridge ASIN to Barcode/UPC?
