Can I change the destination of a QR Code after printing?

Can I change the destination of a QR Code after printing?

Yes, if your QR Code was created at Delivr.

Delivr's QR Code Generator provides dynamic QR Codes

The destination of a dynamic QR Code can be changed at any time and as often as you want – even if your marketing material has already been printed. Advertising campaigns can be adjusted at any time or errors corrected (if for example an incorrect web address was used when you first generated your QR Code.)

What makes the QR Code I generate at Delivr, "dynamic"

Delivr's QR Code Generator encodes a management and tracking Short URL into your QR Code that 301 redirects to your entered destination. As such, you can modify the stored link without having to generate and print the QR Code again. This will save reprinting costs, effort and enable you to respond to any changes in the campaign as quickly as possible.

How to edit the destination  of your QR Code

From your Dashboard,  find the campaign that you wish to change the destination and click, "Edit".  Type in a new Destination URL and click, "Save".  Future scans will send your audience to the new destination.

Important Note About  the Services of Others: Before using one of the many free QR Code Generators or services like Bitly, TinyURL, or Google URL Shortener that because of technical limitations imposed by those platforms it is not possible to edit the destination of QR Codes those services provide after printing or convert the static QR Codes provided into dynamic QR  Codes. Normal, static QR Codes are fixed. The data is stored directly in the QR Code graphic (hence QR codes are also getting larger and form a more complex pattern if there is more data to store). Therefore, the stored data cannot be changed. Any typo in an already printed QR Code cannot be changed, as with any other printed material. This is why we recommend Delivr's QR Code  Generator w/ QR Code Management service for important projects and campaigns.
