We’ve put together a few suggestions for how you can use QR codes to sell your products and services. Whatever the use case, remember to ask your customer to show you their purchase confirmation.
1. Post a QR code in your store window.
If you have a physical storefront, you can print a QR code that’s specific to your business and put it in your store’s window.
2. Post a QR code at the point of sale in your store.
If your physical storefront is still open, you can print your unique QR code and post it at your checkout counter. When your customers are ready to pay, they can simply scan the QR code with their smartphone and pay you without having to interact with your point-of-sale terminal.
3. Attach a QR code to deliveries or packages.
For businesses providing curbside service, attach your QR code to the packages your customers pick up. If your business offers a delivery service, you can attach your QR code to your deliveries.
4. Collect tips for your services.
If you run a business that relies on tips, you can share your QR code in lieu of accepting cash tips.
Your customers will need an account with PayPal to pay you. To pay, they simply open their PayPal app (available in the Apple App Store and Google Play) and select the Scan to Pay option.
Ask your customer to show you their confirmation screen, so you can confirm they sent you the correct amount and that the transaction is legitimate. You’ll see the transaction in your PayPal Business account or in the PayPal Business app listed under Activity. If you have push notifications enabled, you’ll see a notification that the payment was received.
That’s it! You can now share your unique QR code with your customers.
