Of course, you were faced with the fact that you’d to choose the type of code: QR code static or dynamic QR code, when making QR code.
Therefore, today we’ll try to answer your questions, find out the difference between static and dynamic QR codes, tell you about the advantages and disadvantages of each, and give short instructions on how to generate a particular type of code.
QR code static cannot be changed after you have created it. It saves info that cannot be redacted. Most often, such codes are used when information does not need to be updated or when this code is applied once.
Both types of codes have found their application in various fields. For example, static QR code can be used in such occasions:
You may place on information and advertising platforms a QR code, which will direct users to your site when it is scanned.
QR codes for e-mail

If you are planning a one-time or seasonal menu, the static QR code will work in this time.
Of course, these are not all use cases. You can use codes whenever you don't need to collect any tracking metrics and change link to QR code.
If the static QR code is the type, which remains unchanged, then the dynamic QR code can be edited after you have generated it. How does it work? Short links are used to generate dynamic code, which speeds up downloads and crawls.
And these links redirect the user to the URL of the required site. This URL of the required site can be edited while the short links inside the code remain the same. Dynamic QR codes are easier to scan than static QR codes. Plus, you can track how many people scanned this code.
To edit QR code, go to code settings and make changes. It takes a couple of minutes. Therefore, many users prefer to use dynamic QR code. And we will tell you how to change the link in the QR code using our website.
