Feature Request: Make Digital Gift Cards Scannable for Use in POS

We could save a lot of plastic in our shop if digital gift cards were scannable in-store. We want to default to offering digital gift cards for returns and other purposes in our brick and mortar store, but because they have to be manually punched in to be used in-store, we opt to avoid them completely. It's just too time consuming to manually type in the code, and errors are common. Please add a barcode to digital gift cards so they can function in an omni-channel way, online AND in brick-and-mortar.

Our digital gift cards have a QR code that you can scan into your camera on the iPad and it will pull it up, just like the qr code on your receipts. It should be a feature on your digital gift cards both if you print that gift card receipt or in the email the client gets.
