Dynamic QR Codes can be edited even after they have already been printed. This means you can change both the function and content of a Dynamic QR Code at any time and as often as you'd like. Dynamic QR Codes use a short URL (l.ead.me/) which redirects users to your desired landing page. This allows for the collection of scan statistics - including the number of scans, the date, time, and location of a scan, as well as what operating system was used. Below is an example of a Dynamic QR Code and how it will appear in your account.
Static QR Codes, like Email or Text Codes, cannot be edited after printing and do not collect any scan statistics. Below is an example of a Static QR Code and how it will appear in your account if an account was created.
Note the main differences between the two codes pictured above. The Dynamic QR Code has a short URL (l.ead.me/bbLviR) and shows how many scans the code has received. It also offers the option to click through to ‘Details’ to see further scan statistics. The Static QR Code states that it is “Static/Non-trackable” and no scan information is available.
