QR Codes in Retail

QR codes can be a really easy to use and beneficial tool in the world of retail. A great way to use QR codes in retail is to place a mobile barcode on the tag of every item in the store. This way, potential customers can scan the code and look at product specifications as well as reviews of the product they are interested in buying. While some customers may want a sales associate to walk them through the process of scanning the QR codes, others are familiar with the technology and will want to do it on their own, so make sure customers are given the option.

Another way QR codes are used in retail is by mobilizing online retail sites and using QR codes to drive potential customers to the site to hopefully make a purchase. These QR codes can be placed around towns and cities and can also be placed online on social media profiles such as Twitter and Facebook. The more the QR code is seen, the more it will be scanned, and the more sales a company will make.
