When a person scans the QR code, the file immediately downloads to their phone.

A file download QR code is perfect for sharing files with your customers, fans, attendees, volunteers, or anyone else you need to give information to.

You just have to make sure your file is maximum 5MB, so you don’t accidentally overload people’s phones. And if your PDF file or other format is bigger than 5MB, let us know, and we can work something out. Just make sure your customers know the file is larger than 5 MB, too.
