QR Codes

A QR code is a two dimensional image that stores information. When scanned, the scanning device redirects the consumer through a LinkTrust tracking link to the merchant’s landing page. LinkTrust has incorporated the highest level of optimization for maximum device compatibility and error correction. That means, our QR codes are supported by most mobile devices and have the highest level of reliability especially when utilized in print ads where the image can become smudged or partially damaged.

You can create a QR code by doing one of the following:
