Overview

So you got this fantastic MOBILE APP that your customers can use to place orders, check out your promotions, leave feedback, receive push notifications, ….

Now you have to tell new and potential customers all about it and where to get it from.

You could print out a nice big long spiel, but who reads those !

Create a beautiful compact QR CODE that you can put on :

  • Menus
  • Boxes
  • Coffee Cups
  • T-Shirts
  • Social Media
  • Window Decals
  • Tables
  • Queue Jumper Posters
  • The POS APP Customer Display

Determine the URLs to Your MOB APP

So you need some content to put into your QR Code.

As your MOB APP will be published on Google Play and in the Play Store, these are where this content comes from.

Let’s do this by example using Mouthful Duck in Ellenbrook WA.

Google Play for Android Devices

Oscar POS Cloud - QR Code - Google Play - Search

  • Highlight the URL and COPY it
  • Keep it in the clipboard or put into a text document to access later

Oscar POS Cloud - QR Code - Google Play - Copy URL

App Store for Apple Devices

  • Go to the App Store
  • Search for your MOB APP
  • Select your MOB APP

Oscar POS Cloud - QR Code - App Store - Search

  • Highlight the URL and COPY it
  • Keep it in the clipboard or put into a text document to access later

Oscar POS Cloud - QR Code - App Store - Copy URL

Create Your QR Code

At this stage, you COULD create 2 QR Codes … One for Google Play and one for the App Store. It is so much nicer to create a single QR Code, containing both URLS,  that is smart enough to know which one to use.

For this to happen, it will need to be DYNAMIC, which means you need to sign up. See this article about Static or Dynamic QR Codes.

For this example, I will be creating a Dynamic one, using The QR Code Generator as I can sign in with my existing details.

Oscar POS Cloud - QR Code Generator - Dynamic

Oscar POS Cloud - QR Code Generator - Sign In

Once signed in, you can create a NEW DYNAMIC QR CODE

  • Select APP
    • Enter URLs for
    • Desktop ( this is a good fall back to use )
    • Android
    • IOS
  • Download your new QR Code

Test, Test & Test Again

Make sure everything works as expected BEFORE you do anything else.
