QR codes can help make small business banking faster and easier. They are a versatile way to share contact information, make connections, or provide information to customers.

Using the Wells Fargo Mobile® app, you can now generate your own unique Zelle® QR code easily and share it with customers and vendors, allowing you to seamlessly receive money.1 Here’s what you need to know about the technology.

What is a QR code?

Think of QR codes as next-level barcodes. QR stands for “quick response,” meaning you can send information instantly. They can be scanned by the camera app on most smartphones and direct your audience to a chosen webpage. They are two-dimensional, unique, and can’t be modified once they are created.

How do small businesses use QR codes?

QR codes allow you to quickly interact with clients, customers, and vendors. Here are three ways you can use them:

Market yourself

Use a QR code in your marketing materials to allow customers or clients a direct line to more information or to make a purchase.

Connect with customers

A QR code on your business card could link to a vCard so that when it is scanned, all of your information is digitally saved to your contact list, saving them the trouble of typing it in.
