With QR Sharing, you can offer guests another easy sharing option when using your photo booth. QR Sharing allows your guests to directly scan a QR code after they have taken their photo or recorded their video. That way, they receive their session directly on their phone without entering their email or phone number at the booth.

How to enable QR Sharing

You only need to enable "QR Sharing" under the "Event Options" section.

Data Collection with QR Sharing

We must enable one of the following to collect data with the QR Sharing option.

  • Request data when sessions are unavailable - (If sessions weren't uploaded, this option would ask the guest to add an Email or Text to get notified when it is available).

  • Always Request Share Data - (Used to collect all data).

  • Allow Skipping Share data - (The session link may be lost if the session hasn't been uploaded), (*not recommended if the internet is not stable)

How to Customize the QR code

Here, you can change the look and feel of the QR code to match your event under

the "QR Sharing" section.

How to use QR Sharing

When you test the event on your device, you will see a QR code icon next to the other sharing options. Your guest must choose this option and scan the QR code with their phone.

This feature is only available from Snappic App version 1.25, so please ensure you are always on the latest version.

Important to remember

  • QR code color - We highly recommend you test out the QR code option before your event starts to ensure the color you have chosen for the QR code does not clash with the background on the app. You want guests to be able to scan the QR code because there needs to be more contrast between the background color and the QR code.

  • Internet quality - If you do not have a great internet connection on-site, there may be a delay with session uploads, meaning that when guests scan the QR code, it will direct them to a page that says the session is yet to be available. Once your device has a stable internet connection and the sessions have been uploaded, your guests can view their photos/GIFs/videos.
