do I track QR Codes? How can I find out how many times my QR code was scanned
Please click here for answer.
the QR Codes created by QRickit have an expiration date or time
No. The QR Codes generated using the QRickit
QR Code Creators, QRickit
API and QRickit Widget do
not have time expirations or limits on them. The QRickit QR Code image is simply
a graphical representation of whatever data you entered. A QR Code reader app
installed on a handheld device (i.e. smartphone or tablet) is then used to scan
and translate the image back to its original data. *QRickit does not modify your
original data when generating QR Codes.
Some "QR Code" companies charge you a monthly fee to use their "QR Codes" although QR Codes are free to make and use forever! These companies are, in fact, charging you to use their own URLs and the tracking (statistics) of those URLs. They have so-called expiration dates because they want you to continue paying for your monthly plan. It is not the expiration of the QR Code, but the expiration of your monthly plan (and the URLs you are "renting"). These companies can be convenient, but all can be done easily and for free. See QR Code Tracking and the other resources at QRickit to learn more.
is the error correction level of the QR Codes created by
QRickit? (This is for technical minds)
Error correction level is M (about 15% restoration).
I change the QR Code later?
The QRickit QR Code image is simply a graphical
representation of whatever data you entered. If your data changes then you need
to create a new QR Code. *If your QR Code opens a URL, you can use auto redirect
or URL forwarding to open a different URL or online content without having to
change the QR Code.
here is the line of code you put in the <HEAD> section of your mobile web
page to make it automatically redirect to another URL:
do I make a custom QR Code?
You can cutomize the size, color, background color, and footer text when using the QRickit QR Code Creators..
If you want to add a logo/image or further modify the QR Code image, first download a high res version of it. Then you can use almost any graphic editing software (i.e. Photoshop)
to change the colors or add small things on top of or around the
QR Code. If you (or your graphic designer) are fairly creative,
you can even come up with ways to place the QR Code inside your
logo or image instead of the other way around! Just make sure
you test your final image with your mobile phone to see if the
QR Code still works after your changes.
When creating a QR Code, it should be set with a high error correction rate (i.e. the "e" parameter). A higher "e" parameter means that the QR Code can still be readable if a higher percentage of it is destroyed (or covered). So if you set the "e" parameter to 30% (the max) that means you can cover (i.e. destroy) about 30% of the QR Code with your logo/image on top and it could still be readable. The QRickit QR Code Creator for URL is by default set to an error correction of 30% (the highest). Work on a trial and error basis and always keep testing your QR Code to see if it still can be read whenever you modify it. You should also not cover or alter the 4 corners (i.e. the "eyes"). Customization works best when the QR Code data is very short/small, such as a URL (a shortened URL is even better).
