In the rest of this post, we'll dive into the most frequently asked questions about QR codes, and cover how they’ll positively transform your event.
How Can QR Codes Help with Check-in?
As an event organizer, adopting QR codes comes with a host of benefits–a huge one being, you can kick the logistical nightmare and long lines that come with physical tickets.
When you use a QR code scanning app, such as TicketSpice scanning app, all your ticket holder’s data is stored locally on their device. Tickets on the same payment are grouped and linked, making check-in for families and individuals lightning-fast. Your attendees will thank you!
Do QR Codes Work Offline?
Yes! If you’re organizing a music festival, where the internet connection is spotty, you can breathe a sigh of relief because these digital codes work just as well offline.
Are QR Codes Safe?
Yup! Unlike traditional tickets, which can be easily duplicated or forged, QR codes offer a unique digital signature for each attendee.
Additionally, QR codes protect event organizers from fraud. With the Ticketspice Scanning app, all TicketSpice scanning devices will automatically sync with each other giving you a powerful safeguard against fraudulent tickets. Screenshot entry attempts won’t work either because the app will alert you to duplicate tickets.
How Else Can I Use QR Codes at My Event?
You can set up QR codes to allow attendees to make cashless purchases during your event. With the TicketSpice Mobile PayPass feature, attendees simply link their card on file to their unique QR code. From there, whether they want an ice-cream cone or an extra ferris wheel ride, all they have to do is scan the code.
