> Can you scan the barcodes with a physical scanner or phone camera ?
Yes, sure. Our plugin produces standard barcodes, so they can be scanned with any barcode scanner.
> How do you search? by scanner or typing the numbers? Then it automatically takes you to the product page?
You can do both.
1. Searching by numbers: You can search by numbers in admin and on the frontend. You can enable/disable these features with the “Admin search” and “Search” checkboxes (in “WooCommerce > Settings > EAN > General”).
2. By scanner: When outputting the barcode with our shortcode, you need to set the
content attribute to
url (by default it’s set to
ean). In this case, the product URL will be encoded in a barcode, and if you scan it with a phone, it will take you to the product page automatically:
