Hi Rick

I'm sure lots of people skip over some messages, so if you don't get a
reply, you might want to contact Mike Heins @ Perusion directly. I seem to
remember him telling me that he had got IC to work with a barcode scanner
before, so he does done at least that and maybe more.

This would be a hardware and software solution and would be costly I'd
think. However! That said, whoever does help you with this, I have heard
this request more than a few times on IRC.  So, if someone did come up with
a compact solution, that would be wanted by others.

One downside you might find is that the processors that IC can work with
are for internet card processing, so if you use it to auth the card from
the store over the internet, you'll be charged higher discounts rates (card
not present), when the card IS present.
