What barcode scanners are compatible with WooCommerce POS?

Any barcode scanner should work with WooCommerce POS, scanners simply output the serial number to the computer just like a (really fast) keyboard. For more information about how to set and search barcodes in WooCommerce POS, please read the Barcode Scanning documentation.

Version 0.4 of WooCommerce POS will support hotkeys - this means that if you set a custom prefix on the barcode scanner the POS will automatically know you are scanning a product without having to manually focus on the search field. For this functionality to work you may need a scanner that supports 'custom prefixes'.

For a good general purpose barcode scanner that works well with most devices we recommend the TaoTronics TT-BS016 Bluetooth Wireless Barcode Scanner. However, you should read the capabilities to make sure this scanner is suitable for your requirements.
