How to display barcoded item details on screen using Shopify?

5 0 1

We have been using Shopify for some years now and have an idea that would be useful to us and maybe others, hopefully the Shopify community can help.


Is it possible to run a piece of code that would look up a price from a barcoded item and then display on the screen the main image, description and more importantly the price. Then after a set period 10 seconds or on return would reset for next price check.


This would run either on a simple tablet or PC / monitor with a barcode scanner pull live information from Shopify either networked or via wi-fi.


We sell a large number of music books which are all barcoded but the publishers are moving to not pricing individually. This would allow the customer to look up the price without having to take to the sales desk.


Any help ideas would be useful, thanks in advance.


Hopefully that makes sense.

Hi @Dan_Redhead,

ConnectPOS is a leading Shopify POS provider. For the past few years, we have been the momentum to power up the omnichannel journey of retailers all around the world.
We have a unique interface for our client's customers that allows them to interact with the store's available inventory. There is no time restriction to view product information.
Our product has been used in many places and can be set up by installing a public touch screen. Customers can search for the product information without depending on the salesperson and staff. What's more, the app is compatible with different operating systems, so it is really easy to use.
In case customers want to view the information on their own devices instead of the public ones, they can use our PWA Consumer App, which was trusted by ASUS Singapore. There are 2 ways they can proceed to use this app:
1, Scan the QR code once to view all product information
2, Scan whatever products they want
Our app can even track users' behavior, including scanning frequency, time... so that your store can suggest similar and suitable products, thus boosting sales.
