This is a simple but effective way to add value to your QR code service.
We use a free online tool to customise QR codes, and we charge for this service: https://www.qrcode-monkey.com/
Customisation options include colours, colour gradients and shape-changes.
Don’t tell the customer that this is a free service unless they ask.
The level of customisation is surprising, so you need to keep checking that your edited QR Code still functions as it changes.
Also check that the QR Code functions correctly before delivering it to the customer.
