WooCommerce QR Code Extension for Online Ordering and Local Pickup
I've seen this done in movie theaters and think it would be a great extension for juice and coffee shops.
A WooCommerce extension that would auto-generate a QR code and send it as part of the sales invoice would be fantastic. That way people could easily order online, go into the retail location, and have the store scan the QR code on their mobile to approve the purchase.
I'm thinking the only data the QR code would really have to contain is the order number. It would still have to be verified manually by an employee to make sure the order was indeed placed and paid for, but that's a 5 second task.
This can be done in WooCommerce Order Barcodes: http://www.woothemes.com/products/woocommerce-order-barcodes/
I hope that helps! :)
I'm also need such extension :)) for my internet shop )

Looking for this as well ! Random order number converted to QR code on the invoice adn scan it back at the warehouse.

I think it's a great idea for volume sellers. In the movie theater example, patrons are trying to enter quickly. Trying to enter unique order numbers would be a great way to anger customers. A farmers market is another good example. I'd buy it.
I don't really see what is the benefit in this compared to to just showing the order number? Based on your explanation I see the QR code as an extra step that is just making things more complicated.
