How to share your WhatsApp contact using QR Codes

by ace

WhatsApp Business is a way for small and medium-sized companies to expand their possibilities of direct contact with old and new customers. Today, the platform is already used by more than five million businesses across the country. A feature that was introduced about two weeks ago further facilitates contact with new customers, as it allows the company or merchant to share a QR Code that, when scanned, opens a direct window for communication between the two.

The QR Code can be made available on websites and social media pages, as well as printed on packaging, bags, cards or ad pamphlets, which will be distributed on the streets or in strategic locations. The advantage of the QR Code is that it does not directly expose the number of the advertiser, nor does it expire.
