Scanning Barcodes into Shopventory via an External Device

Most barcode scanners that plug into a computer "tell" the computer/device that they are just a keyboard. So if you click on a text field and scan a barcode, the scanner will "type" in the number that was just scanned. 

Recommended Scanners:

Other scanners might work, but the above models have been tested and are known to work with Shopventory. There are many different scanners out there and each one may interact differently with your Operating System or Browser. Shopventory does not guarantee functionality.

Currently, you can use a scanner to add units on Stocktakes. More scanning functionality is planned in the coming months!
