Answered in your Launchpad Question. Pasting my answer here:

You can store the EAN of the product in the field that has been provided, i.e. "EAN13 Barcode" (ean13). By default (product/product.py lines 670) if the product couldn't be found using their default_code (line 668) then it will search using ean13.

So, basically you just need to specify the EAN for the products, then when creating Sale Order, you can enter (or scan) the EAN code when filling in Product field in each Sale Order Line.

If you are looking into a feature that user can scan EAN barcode and automatically the quantity of the sale order line of that particular product will be inreased (or a new sale order line added if the product has not been added yet), you need to develop that.

Thanks for the explanation John Doe ...
