How You Can Use a QR Code As An Etsy Seller
You can use QR code:
1. On Your Business Card
You can add a QR code on your business cards that will redirect your customers to your Etsy store whenever they scan it.
So instead of typing your shop address manually they can now scan the QR and visit your shop directly.
So, eventually, you will make it easier for them to visit your shop and make their purchase.
2. On Thank You Cards
If you include thank you cards with your orders, you can use them as an opportunity to promote your Etsy shop by adding a QR code. Customers can scan the code and be taken straight to your shop or social media profiles to check out your other products.
3. On Shipping Boxes
Another great way to promote your Etsy shop is by adding a QR code to your shipping boxes. Customers can scan the code and be taken directly to your shop to see what other products you have to offer.
How Does A Customer Scan And Use A QR Code?
Using a QR code is simple!
All your customers need is a smartphone camera and an app that can scan the code.
Once they have these two things, it’s just a matter of pointing your phone at the QR code, allowing it to focus on the image, and then using the app to process it.
Depending on what type of content is encoded in the QR code, they can be taken directly to an Etsy shop page or even a social media page without having to type in any web addresses!
