We have partnered with http://www.socketmobile.com/ to integrate their CHS 7Di Bluetooth Barcode Scanner SDK in to Shopwave. What does this mean? Scan barcodes to your hearts content.
You cannot plug in any old scanner to an iPad as the connection is not available. Socket Mobile have worked with Apple to develop an approved market leading device specifically for use with Apple products.
Pair the scanner to your iPad by following the instructions that come with it and you are ready to go.
When you have a lot of products it can be hard work to search for the exact one that you are selling and this simply speeds up the process.
Contact Shopwave if you are interested in the device.
