Scan Barcode to Basket
many customers whishes a functionality where they can order items in a fast way by scanning the barcodes from the items in their warehouse or stores.
a great feature would be a scanning addon for the webshop.
[SANA PRODUCT] We are currently working on building a so-called “Front-end API”. For the technical people: we are implementing ReactJS as our new frontend framework. We expect to release this by the end of 2019. Having a frontend API is crucial for our first steps towards a Progressive Web App (PWA). With this PWA, we might also include a barcode scanner.

i would need both versions, on my opinion the customer/user can switch between the two variants
if he uses a physical scanner (f.e. via usb) the process should look so.
1. set focus to search filed in shop
2. scan barcode with configured Carriage Return (= Enter) Postfix
3. 1 item with scanned barcode will be added to the basket
4. search field should be cleared and should be focused for next scan
for scenario 2 i would find it cool if the customer has a little icon/button next to the search input field where he can activate the mobile phone camera, where the customer can scan via qr-code scanning.
maybe take a look to 3rd party frameworks (= scandit)

Interesting idea. Would you prefer using your mobile phone (e.g. QR) or physical scanners?
