Hey there, brian14.
Thanks for reaching out here in the Community with your question about barcode scanning. I'd be glad to provide some additional insight on this topic.
As Rustler mentioned, barcode scanning isn't currently available in the Online version of QuickBooks. I think this would be a beneficial feature to offer business owners.
I'll be sure to pass this suggestion along to the appropriate channel. Doing so will alert the Product Development Team, letting them know barcode scanning has been requested to use in QuickBooks Online.
You can stay updated with news and product releases by visiting the QuickBooks Blog here: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/blog/.
Keep up the great work and let me know if you have any other questions. Take care.
It works half way but there is a bug that makes the barcode scanner unusable, read this.
Somebody at QB , please fix it !!
The blog you've shared was helpful for manual entry. QBO currently doesn't have a direct connection to the barcode scanner. However, we've got you some third-party applications that have this kind of functionality and can sync with QBO. You can go to the Apps center in the left navigation and search for any barcode scanning apps.
In the meantime, I'll pass your feedback to our developers. It will be a useful reference for our future updates.
If you need anything else, please let us know. We're happy to help.
Does anyone know if bar code scanning is available yet in QBO?

I can't believe this simple feature is not available yet! It is so basic that it should be an emergency to be fixed. As pe me, it is not a new feature, it's a bug that should be corrected!
Hi there, @productionszani,
The barcode scanning for inventory management is already available in QuickBooks Desktop.
If you need to set up and use this feature, you can go through this article for the detailed steps: Use barcode scanning.
While you can't use this feature in QuickBooks Online, you can visit the Intuit Apps center and search for available apps to scan your inventory.
Thanks for reaching out to us here in the Intuit Community. If there's anything else I can help you with, please let me know. I'm always glad to help.
Is this something that QB online will offer in the future as it already works on the QB Desktop? Trying to decide if we move to another system or not, we need something that is compatible with scanning inventory to make an invoice and scanning inventory that will update our stock levels.
You have some great ideas for improving our inventory management, @valeworkshop.
I can see how barcode scanning would be helpful for both you and your business. As of now, we don’t have a specific time frame on when this specific feature will be available. Rest assured, I’d surely forward these suggestions to our Product Engineers for consideration in future updates.
