I am looking for a way to read the barcodes of my products with a device in order not to forget anything when I prepare a package for an order.
Is there an application?
Is there a setting in Shopify?
Thanks in advance
At this stage, you can only scan product barcodes to process orders on Shopify POS, rather than online orders. There are third-party apps available on our Shopify app store that can help you implement this feature on your Shopify admin, however. An example of such app is the EasyScan: SKU and Barcode App here. You can take a look at that app to see if it will suit your store's needs. Just a note however that apps like this one have been made by third-party developers outside of Shopify. So if you have any questions about them I would recommend getting in touch with the app developers, as they are best equipped to answer app-specific queries.
I definitely see how being able to scan product barcodes to fulfil online orders is a useful option to have within our admin, so I will send this as a feature request to our developers. As we are constantly looking to improve our platform, perhaps this is something we can incorporate in the future. Please note that although I will be submitting this request, we are unable to track it as this is an internal process that our developer team oversees. However there is currently a public facing changelog here that you can check for new features that has been added to Shopify.
Charlie here, Product Manager for EasyScan.
Within EasyScan you can fulfill your orders, create orders, update and check your inventory all using a barcode scanner.
Any barcode scanner that can connect to your desktop or mobile device will work!
Please get in touch if you would like any more assistance here.
Thanks and have a great day!
