How to get started with QR


As I am just getting started, I would like to use the collective brain to get on board as quickly as possible.

I would like to show dynamic QR codes on my website (the mobile version is coming), where the users could scan the code and pay.

1. How do I generate a dynamic QR code?

2. What is the role of the banks here? Do users need to pay through their bank's mobile apps?

3. Anything ready for java based backends?


Thanks in advance!

Hi nomadus,

Dynamic QR Code generator is a solution that helps create editable QR Codes, which means, one can change the destination URL, without changing the QR Code. A Dynamic QR Code generator also helps track the QR Code performance in real-time.

You can easily create dynamic QR code through website and through chrome QR code generator extension.
