The e-commerce.

Is there a barcode scanning feature for this cart

Recommended Posts

Would like to know if there is a way to use a barcode scanner to add in and take out inventory out of the database. This would be much easier for me as i'm using oscommerce for DVD's, i sell alot on ebay and other means outside of the shopping cart checkout system.

 

Thanks.

I installed the barcode contrib already, it's really nice code to output some barcode - anyway i suppose you'll need EANs in the DB (so you need an EAN-enabled scanner) ... I have EAN adding in my TODO for product_info...

but i'm sure it would help you if you would specify how you want to add by barcode - using some webinterface to auto-fetch descriptions maybe ?

the scanners known to me are simple keyboard-hook-ins (or second HID device for USB versions)... on scanning they send keystrokes, so all you need is mark "product number field" and hit the EAN with your scanner (assuming that you want to use EAN as product number - for my shop I planned to use independent barcodes... thus an extra EAN field

Yes all i need is for it to scan and automatically add or take out stock. And maybe auto populate the product ID with the ISBN number when i scan new products that aren't in the database yet..

 

is there anything like that? I am not a very technical person to try and modify things.

Sounds like what you need to do is to add back in the ability to turn products and categories on and off. That way you upload your database with all the products and when you scan with wand and hit a button the item will take an active status. And vice versa.
