2D QR barcodes are a great way to quickly and efficiently check your guests in upon arrival.
When activated, the QR code add-on places a booking-specific barcode into your customer's invoice which can then be scanned by you or your staff using a mobile device. This allows for a quick and easy way to check-in and check-out your guests.
Checkfront Tip: Important!
You need to use the Checkfront Mobile application in order to scan the QR Barcodes. Our mobile application is compatible with both iOS and Android devices. Please select the appropriate link below to learn more!
Setting up your QR BarcodesBack to top
Sign in to your Checkfront account and navigate to Manage > Integrations in your menubar.
Scrolling down, you can find the QR Barcodes tile under the Productivity section. Click on this tile to open up the setup window.
Decide if you want your QR codes to show up in Grey or Black and click the Activate button. Now your QR Codes have been activated!
Customers will start seeing them on their invoices, and you are able to scan them in immediately!
Checkfront Tip: Remember to Resend Your Invoices!
While the QR Barcodes apply to the invoices immediately, the emails your customers have already received are not updated. You need to send your customers updated versions of the invoices that include your new, fancy barcodes!
