  1. barcode

    I would like to help make WooCommerce into a basic POS system using a barcode scanner to scan products in and out of WooCommerce.

    It would be able to add SKU as per barcode and add and remove inventory as well.

    • include barcodes on products WooCommerce

      include barcodes on products without having to get through a plugin would be a great idea for businesses with small physical store and warehouses.

      • Create barcodes for orders created through API

        What I expected

        To have barcodes sent in customer emails for orders created through API.

        What happened instead

        The barcode is only generated in two situations:

        1. On the checkout form
        2. When viewing the order in WP Admin

        None of these triggers is activated through API, so the barcode is not sent.

        • Add barcodes to Print Invoices and Packing Lists PDFs

          A customer asks if the Order Barcodes could also appear within PDFs generated by the Print Invoice and Packing Lists. There are PIP action & filter hooks in place for additions such as this.

          • QR Code Scanning with your Mobile Website

            I really wish the built in barcode reader would support using the camera in a smartphone, so looking up tickets, checking in, etc., would work directly from the website.

            https://www.sitepoint.com/create-qr-code-reader-mobile-website/

            Would make the life with WooCommerce, Ticketing, Checkins and customer handling much easier :)

            • Add a fallback for barcode images in email browsers that dont suport SVG

              Add a fallback for barcode images in email browsers that dont suport SVG

              Barcodes won't appear in email browsers like outlook that don't support SVG. This really needs a jpg fallback to ensure browser compatibility.

              Failing that at the minimum there needs to be a link to a page where users can print the barcode. I'm currently using the below but it would be nice to see something implemented properly...

              add_action( 'woocommerce_email_order_meta', 'obs_get_barcode_code', 10, 2 );
              function obs_get_barcode_code ($order){

              $barcodenumber = get_post_meta( $order->id, "_barcode_text", true );
              $ordernumber = $order->id;
              $orderkey = $order->order_key;
              echo '<h1 style="text-align:center;">This is your ticket</h1>';
              echo '<h2…

              • Woocommerce order Barcodes scanning directly to your product

                At this point you can only view the information of your product when entering the number of the barcode number.
                You can't scan the barcode (by phone) and go straight to products information.
                When you have an event with a lot people it would be a good option to scan the barcode and see if the client has paid instead of entering the barcode number into the form.
