Take your phone out of your pocket and look at the screen. Think about all the different apps on that single page and all the things you can do with them.
You can see how your friend’s new business is doing or look at pictures from a high school friend’s wedding. You can post your thoughts on the internet and get immediate feedback. And you can scan QR codes to pay for items online.
QR, or quick response, codes offer a way to skip steps in the transaction process on both the buyer’s and seller’s end. QR codes can store lots of data, and many smartphones are now equipped with built-in QR code scanning capabilities.
But this simple buying process doesn’t happen on its own. One of the best applications to initiate transactions and work with QR codes is Square.
With a Square QR code, you can bring all your purchasing and customer information under one roof, making access and analysis more efficient. Here’s what you need to know about using a Square QR code and how it can benefit your business.
Create forms for your functions
To properly gather payment information, you’ll first have to create a space for your customers to give it to you. That’s where JotForm comes in. With JotForm, you can set up forms for online orders, event registrations, and donations. Its payment forms are customizable, with drag-and-drop capabilities paired with security measures to ensure all your customer data is safe.
What’s more, JotForm’s partnership with Square gives you the ability to collect customer information and payments at the same time. All you have to do is select Square as the payment option in the Form Builder.
Integrate with JotForm
It’s worth exploring JotForm’s Square capabilities and how they can help you set up a Square QR code.
JotForm’s Square integration allows you to easily accept payments through a Square payment form. You can collect recurring payments, sell products, and receive donations.
Every payment is stored in the same place, so you won’t have to go on a scavenger hunt if you’re looking for something specific. Plus, you don’t want to make the transaction process overly complicated for your customers, and this integration can assuage those concerns.
Pair QR codes for fast transactions
Once you’ve created your JotForm payment forms and set up your Square integration, you can create QR codes for your forms. All you have to do is use the Quick Share function in JotForm’s Form Builder and select Download QR Code.
Your QR code can capture information from any device. As for pairing with Square, you can think of the steps in the process as links in a chain — create a form, attach a QR code, and connect the form with Square. And since each Square QR code is unique to a specific product or function, you’ll be able to easily access data and filter it for the information you want.
Build trust with your users
Your customers have a lot of choices — such are the spoils of the internet. Remember that they’re making a conscious choice to use your service and trust you with their information. Your goal should always be to make this process as easy, pain free, and secure as possible.
A Square QR code does just that. Instead of giving customers multiple steps to complete, you’re sending them exactly where they need to be with one quick scan. Don’t underestimate the value of saving your customers time — it’s the thing that very likely could separate you from your competition.
Stay on the cutting edge
Studies show that Americans on average spend more than five hours per day on their phones. And we can get pretty cranky if we have to deal with slow Wi-Fi or glitchy applications. Smartphones are often built around the idea of instant gratification — people don’t want to have to hunt all over the place to learn about you.
A Square QR code eliminates this potential problem and keeps you on the front lines of the consumer market. Embracing QR codes shows your users that you value the time they spend with you.
Connect with customers
A Square QR code creates a direct line between you and your consumers. It delivers the information you need from them to complete each transaction. It’s quick, easy to use, and secure, and it can help you stay organized and keep your business growing.
If you’re constantly seeking the best methods to work as efficiently as possible, creating QR codes for forms and using integrations is a no-brainer. Your customers will appreciate how quickly they can get in and out, and you’ll appreciate having all your information in one place as you take stock of how your business is doing and project its future successes.
