Wouldn't that be part be best positioned on the fullfillment end of things during picking and packing to assure the ordered items make it into the shipping box?

This would be for a POS when the customer is standing right there. waiting to checkout. The barcode scanner would be necessary for a fast checkout process.

I am willing to contribute as well
but this should be a complete mod

this is how i think it should be

1- admin clicks "make phone order" link under search orders
2- admin select an existing customer from a list or creates a new one
3- admin decides what payment mehod of order it is from a drop down menu
[credit card order / check / no money ..]

4- admin select products and add it to cart and add any coupons
[the 3 checkout steps ... select customer / select payment / submit ]

5- if credit card, admin enters credit info on next screen
and order is charged

6- order is marked processed and marked as phone order to be searched later on ..

If I think of more "wishlist" features other than those already mentioned I'll be sure to chime in.

I have done such multiple times.

Never really thought about the cookie thing tho, and it has never happened to me so far.

Luck? Who knows...

I am not an expert coder, but I am not sure if thie barcode issue would be feasable at this time. Isn't that entirely too complicated for this type of Phone or POS mod?

Doesn't it require some major backend coding for scanners to work properly?

Maybe I am wrong here, maybe it is totally simple, looks like it is a tough road to go though to add scanners.
