qrHow to add QR codes to your tickets
Are you using or thinking about using bar code scanning for ticketing?

If so, consider using QR codes, a type of 2D barcode.
2D barcodes are also known as quick response codes because they enable fast data access, and are often used in conjunction with smart phones.

It's also fairly simple to add QR codes in Wintix so they print on your tickets.

Bar codes offer considerable advantages:
  • Improve profit by eliminating the acceptance of counterfeit tickets. Bar-coded tickets stop the problem.
  • Avoid charge backs by running a report of who attended. This way you can prove which tickets were used in the case someone claims they did not attend.
  • You can run a report of people who purchased tickets and did not attend. If season ticket holders do not attend, they are not likely to renew their subscriptions. These people need a call.
2D bar code scanners are also becoming much more affordable.
