How Paypal Merchants Can Use QR Codes


In today’s touch-free world, contactless payments are becoming increasingly popular as a convenient way to make payments and transfer funds. One popular contactless payment method? The PayPal QR code, which is essentially a printable QR code customers can scan to send payment to a business. 

In case you missed it, QR codes (short for Quick Response code) are a type of two dimensional code that exploded in popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic. PayPal hopped on the QR code bandwagon and harnessed this popular technology to facilitate transactions for customers and merchants. 

And while PayPal has its own QR code generator, the QR codes associated with it are often visually unappealing and dull. That’s where Flowcode comes in. Flowcode offers free custom solutions that are dynamic (change scan destination anytime) and can even connect to mobile landing pages containing multiple links. Read on to see how you can use QR codes as a PayPal merchant, and why Flowcode is the best solution.

Who are the ideal PayPal merchants?

PayPal QR codes essentially work for everyone and even extends to  private use, one-time events and more. But here are some top examples of PayPal merchants:

1. Small businesses. Small businesses use PayPal to accept payments from clients both online and in-person. Conveniently, PayPal offers various payment solutions that can also be used to manage their finances and send invoices.

2. Nonprofits. Also known as NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations), nonprofits often rely on donations to fund their programs and day to day operations. PayPal is a great facilitator and mediator that enables nonprofits to accept donations across the globe. Nonprofits can also use PayPal features like receipts to help them manage finances.

3. E-commerce stores. In the last ten years, the number of online retail sales has tripled, as e-commerce offers the convenience of purchasing items in a few simple clicks. PayPal is an excellent payment solution for e-commerce companies, as it provides fraud protection and chargeback assistance.

4. Freelancers & service workers. Just like stores and small businesses, freelancers and service workers can also rely on PayPal to receive payments. This payment solution helps them create professional invoices to send out to clients. And since PayPal also keeps all the records, freelancers and workers also get to manage their finances.

What are the benefits of using QR codes?

Now that you understand who PayPal’s ideal customer is, let’s discuss why you should use QR codes for payments. Here are some advantages:

1. Increased Flexibility. QR codes can be used in various settings, including in person, online, and even on mobile devices. And with Flowcode, the printing options are endless so you can affix them to a variety of surfaces to facilitate payment. 

This means that the merchants can receive their payments without worrying about security or access, as it’s convenient for the customer. In concert with Flowcode, you can rest assured that your transactions are secure, as it’s also the number one trusted QR provider on the market.

 2. Reduced Checkout Time. While old payment methods require you to manually key in your payment details, QR codes only require you to scan the code to complete payment. Within seconds, clients can make the payment, and a receipt is generated. It saves time and enhances customer satisfaction.  

3. Increased Sales. Using QR codes, merchants can increase sales as customers complete transactions quickly. For example, if you previously served only 300 people per day, you can now serve more than 600 people as the checkout time reduces. 

4. Secure Transactions. Before QR codes are deployed, they undergo a rigorous encryption and security check to ensure there are no instances of fraud. This provides security for PayPal merchants and clients, ensuring it’s a safe and seamless experience. Plus, Flowcode is USA-based and uses automated and manual systems to protect our platform integrity from hackers, so you can rest assured your transactions are completely secure. 

5. Reduced Costs. With QR codes, merchants have zero worries about processing fees. Usually, when customers pay via regular means, they may be required to pay transaction charges, which can discourage their use. And since  Flowcode is completely free to set up, you can easily create yours in a few simple clicks.

Whether you have an online store, a small business, or you’re a freelancer, PayPal merchants hugely benefit from using QR codes across the board. And since Flowcode offers free custom solutions that can be branded, are dynamic (change scan destination anytime), and even connect to mobile landing pages to organize several links in one place, it makes sense to link your PayPal account to a Flowcode QR code. 

To take full advantage, simply create your QR code with our Flowcode QR generator today and start enjoying the benefits.
