- What is a QR code menu?
A QR code menu is a menu that uses QR codes to allow customers to place self-service food orders.
- How to use the QR code for my restaurant menu
You can either assign QR codes to each service area (e.g. table) or have customers enter their service area manually. Either way, their orders will be sent to your staff automatically as a digital ticket.
- Do my customers need an app to scan the QR Code menu?
No, they just use their regular mobile phone/tablet camera.
- Is the QR code menu free to create and use?
Yes, it’s both free and simple to create QR code menus with the Square QR code menu generator.
- How do QR code menus integrate with Square payments
Once the customer scans the QR code and places their order it creates a digital ticket. This can then be tracked in the same way as any other digital ticket. For example, it can be used to create bills without any need for human intervention. These can then be paid as usual.
