What is QR code tracking?

QR code tracking in Affise is a process to get and monitor the real-time user information via a scan. It is a feature to broaden your traffic and reach even more visitors for your product. Your affiliates can help you set up QR codes both online and offline to increase the success of your campaign. QR codes are effective in different spheres, but they are especially useful in e-commerce.

How does QR code tracking work?

Before you begin, make sure you are aware of the regular tracking process described here.

The Affise system generates QR codes based on Affise tracking link. It's an alternative for a partner, who can use QR code instead of a regular tracking link to send traffic to Affise.

In the Affise system, QR code scan works the same way as a click. You get the same user information like IP-address, device, date and time, data passed via additional parameters, etc. as you get about a click.

When the system registers a conversion based on a QR code scan, you can see the message "QR code" in the Comment column on the Conversions statistics page.
