I have already created and printed my QR Code. Can I change the URL of my QR Code?

In a static QR Code the target URL is hard coded and cannot be edited retrospectively! With a dynamic QR Code you can edit the target URL anytime and avoid situations like this:

We created a QR code for a YouTube video that was then printed on a huge batch of brochures. Today one of our employees accidentally deleted the YouTube video which means we now have a lot of brochures in circulation with non-working QR codes. Is there any way you can change the URLs for us so they link to different YouTube videos? It would save us a lot of trouble as we’re in the middle of critical campaign launch.

If you are using static QR Codes we cannot do anything in that case. Instead use Dynamic QR Codes whenever possible.

Why only text is shown in the QR Reader and I'm not redirected to the website after scanning?

Some QR Code readers only recognize a link if a protocol http:// is placed in front of the URL. If you create a QR Code with the URL without a protocol some readers will interpret this as plain text. Always create links with the protocol e.g. in front of the URL to make sure that every reader redirects you to the desired website immediately after scanning.
