Can I input email address using scanner?

My plan: under Payment, there is a receipt session. You can either print, email or text receipt. But the email field is filling manually. Can I use a scanner to scan a barcode as an email input and then send out email receipt automatically?

If yes, could anyone give me some hint which intent or API should I use to achieve this?

Thanks in advanced.

Your app will be able to grab the email address from the barcode.

This is an example app listening for the result of a barcode scan. https://github.com/clover/android-exa...

There's no way of automatically sending the email but once the email is scanned, the app could create a customer with the email address and associate it with the order. This will prefill the email but the customer/merchant will still need select email option and press 'send.'

Another option is to send the order_id information to your servers and send the email automatically from your servers. All web receipt follow this pattern: https://sandbox.dev.clover.com/r/{order_id}
