What is a QR code?
A QR (Quick Response) code is a type of barcode. It holds information that can be read by a QR code scanner, usually a smartphone camera or app, and can be shared online or printed. Scanning a QR code triggers a specific action such as bringing a visitor to a particular product page, social media account or virtual business card.
Benefits of using QR codes
With Wix’s free QR code generator, you can generate free QR codes for business and customize them to match your brand. Use them to create engaging promotional materials, share useful information with customers on the go and drive traffic directly to your website or landing page. A static QR code doesn't expire, so once you’ve printed or shared it, you’re set.
Ways to use QR codes in your business
QR codes are a quick and hassle-free way for customers to connect with your business. There are many ways to use a QR code for small business, such as sharing a restaurant menu, directing potential clients to your portfolio, providing instructions on packaging and so much more.

How to scan a QR code
These days, most smartphones have built-in QR scanners within the native camera app. All you have to do is point your camera at a QR code to scan it and access the information you’re looking for. If your device does not have a built-in QR scanner, you can download a third party QR code scanner app instead.

QR Code FAQ
1. What are QR codes used for?
You can use QR codes for business and personal projects. Depending on the type of content you choose to share, you’ll be able to send customers to a particular product page or social media account, connect to WiFi or send a pre-written email—and so much more. Simply place your QR code on your website, flier, business card, product packaging, menu or even a billboard to get the word out.
2. Is the QR Code Generator safe?
As a technology, QR codes are safe. Any security risks associated with them have to do with the destination, or the content shared, rather than the QR codes themselves. Once generated, the content inside a static QR code cannot be changed or modified to perform a different function.
3. What is the difference between dynamic and static QR codes?
Wix offers a free static QR code generator. A static QR code contains information that can’t be changed once the code is live. This makes static QR codes a great way to share fixed information, such as contact information, WiFi passwords, images or URLs to specific web pages. The content of dynamic QR codes, on the other hand, can be edited even after they’re shared or printed without having to create a new code.
4. Is there a scan limit for QR codes?
No, there is no limit to how many times your QR code can be scanned. Use Wix’s QR code maker to get a free QR code for business or for a personal project you’re working on.
5. Will my QR code expire?
Static QR codes are valid for as long as you want and will never expire. The only instance where the code might stop working is when the destination URL is changed or deleted. Use our simple QR code generator to make free QR codes for your business or personal projects.
6. How much does it cost to use the Wix QR Code Generator?
Nothing. Creating QR codes online with Wix is completely free—so generate away.
