These dynamic QR codes (destination can be edited anytime) can be printed on physical support like flyers or banners and scanned by mobile devices to redirect to content online.

For example, as a restaurant owner, you can use a dynamic QR code leading your clients to your food & drinks menu. As an e-commerce seller on some marketplaces, you can also print QR codes flyers leading to a smartpage offering to your customers to get rewards coupons or subscribe to a product warranty after filling out a form, to collect customers' information and offer them exclusive discounts. You can as well print a wifi QR code and display it in your building to let visitors access your connection within a flash (no credentials required). Possible use-cases are endless πŸ’Ž
