Yes, QR codes are free to use

Yes, the term QR Code (QR = Quick Response) itself is a registered trademark of Denso Wave Incorporated, but the use of QR codes is free.

The QR Codes that you create on our website can be used free of charge and commercially and you can create as many static QR codes as you want. You can choose from fancy designer QR Code templates and use your own colors and your own logo.

Be careful when choosing a QR Code service

Always be careful when using a QR Code service, to avoid unpleasant surprises.

Some providers display ads

When creating a QR Code some QR Code providers route the user through a landing page first, where an ad is displayed before continuing to the target URL.

Some providers trick you into free accounts which are paid accounts

There are also providers where it is not immediately obvious that the offer is chargeable and the QR Code only continues to work when payment is made.

A provider may go bankrupt

If you create a dynamic QR Code another risk is if the tracking server goes offline, the dynamic QR Code will not work anymore.

Therefore, we recommend you to use our fast and secure infrastructure. Our service does not display any ads and you can create both – static and dynamic QR Codes – for free. Moreover, we offer you a white label solution to create dynamic QR Codes that can contain your own domain. This ensures you always have full control over your QR Codes, and you are not depended on our service. You can change to a different provider and export all QR Codes from us at any time.
