Cross-platform document scanning

As part of the App I'm developing I want a functionality that allows the user to scan a document. It seems that in iOS starting with iOS 11 there's an existing API for the task, however as far as I researched that isn't available on Android.

What's the best way to implement such a functionality with a limited amount of invested resourcers? If possible I would want to avoid buying a yearly license for multiple thousand euros.

    I think the Zebra SDK is the most widely used. There are others.

    The terms of the Zebro software aren't clear to me. Is that library free for developers to use or do I have to buy a license?

    Then write them for clarification. I don't work for them and can't speak to their details.
