The best way to maximize your budget!
From non-profits to heart writers, a PayPal QR code is key to collect payments!
How does a PayPal QR code work?
You simply add your organization’s PayPal username in the code along with information about the donation or purchase the visitor will make.
The code lets them review their payment details and then takes them to PayPal where they can finish the transaction to your account.
It makes payments so easy for your visitors. Scan, review, pay, done.
Simplifying a payment process
The quicker you can get them to the payment option, the more likely they are to proceed with donating or purchasing.
Make it as unique as your brand

PayPal QR code ideas
They are amazing for charities, too. With a QR code, they can make a donation right then and there.
Or, make a special “QR code menu” for people to pay that way if they want.
If you are a charity, QR codes make it easy for people to donate after hearing your pitch.
Or, if you work for a charity, do the same and give people the opportunity to donate when you connect with them.
Will people scan it?
Virtually every phone has QR code scanning capabilities these days.
PayPal QR codes are highly useful for getting people to make payments or donations to your business or charity while it is at the front of their minds. Your audience reads the poster/brochure/direct mail/etc. and the QR code gives them an immediate way to pay you. This is valuable because it allows them to do it immediately instead of “doing it later” and forgetting about it or changing their minds.
The codes can also be used at trade shows, in mall kiosks and in other places to give people an alternate way of paying you. No matter how you use it, a PayPal QR code adds value to both your customers’ lives and your business.
