Your Guide to QR Codes | Distributor Success Guide
How does my customer scan a QR code?
Most smartphones have built-in QR scanners, which
are sometimes built in the camera. A QR scanner is
simply a way to scan QR codes.
Some tablets, such as the Apple iPad, have QR
readers built into their cameras. Some older devices
may require a particular app to read QR codes –
these apps are readily available on the Apple App
Store and Google Play. Just search “QR Code
reader” in your app store.
Some of my customers don’t have the ability to
scan a QR code - how can they place an order?

receive the necessary information.
3. The data will be instantly shown on screen –
for instance, if the QR code contains contact
details, your phone should instantly download
What happens if I choose not to buy stickers
with my own QR code?
Your customers will still be able to scan the original
QR code on the cover of the catalogue and all
the codes inside. However, they will not be taken
directly to your Webshop. It is in your interest to
purchase the stickers so that you still earn your
commission from any sales. You are offering your
customers an amazing opportunity to still buy
from you and receive the products quicker. It will

to order the items, deliver the items or bank any
money. You will still earn the same amount of
