QR codes are one of the fastest and easiest ways to open a URL on your phone since they are compatible with just about every major smartphone’s camera.

Simply navigate to the Sharing tab of your Campaign and click Print QR Code.

Print your code to display in person, or save it as an image to display on a monitor. Now anyone can scan your QR code with their phone camera to go straight to your Givebutter campaign.

Try it for yourself! Hold your smartphone camera up to our test code:
