QR Code Tag for WC order emails, POS receipt emails, PDF invoices, PDF packing slips, Blog posts, Custom post types and Pages (from goaskle.com)

Description

LIVE DEMO

!!! Result Template Editor in admin area !!! – planned

Generates QR codes for Woocommerce orders automatically / dynamically and inserts them into every Woocommerce email, PDF invoice and POS receipt.
Also you can use QR Codes (Google API or QR Code Lib) anywhere in your blog, using Widget, using Tooltip, using Shortcode or even with a PHP function or in any other place.

QR code images also compatible with Gmail (not cutted).

These plugins are already supported out of the box:

WooCommerce (All order emails)
WooCommerce PDF Invoices & Packing Slips (Emails + Files)
Kadence WooCommerce Email Designer (Emails)
YITH Point of Sale for WooCommerce (Receipts)

In accordance with current legal requirements (Due Covid-19 in some countries), we have created a standard customer data template:
The data for the template is generated dynamically based on the data from each order in WooCommerce.
At the same time, we left the opportunity for you to create QR codes based on your specified static data. Use one of 3 methods: shortcode, widget or tooltip.
Instructions for developers are provided to place QR codes inside any place in the template of your WordPress-based website.

The dynamic data of the template is shown in brackets:

{Customer First Name} {Customer Family Name}
TOTAL AMOUNT {$39.10} – Total order amount from Woocommerce
VAT AMOUNT {$5.10} – Total Tax order amount from Woocommerce
VAT NUMBER {xxxxxxxx} (you can change it in admin: Goto WordPress Admin -> Settings -> QR code Tag from Goaskle.com) -> Enter yours there
DATE {03/11/2021} – Order date (created) from Woocommerce
TIME {19:03} – Order time (created) from Woocommerce
{https://yourdomain.com} – Your domain where this Woocommerce order was created.

For example:
Ivan Ivanov
TOTAL AMOUNT $39.10
VAT AMOUNT $5.10
VAT NUMBER 1235ABN457
DATE 03/11/2021
TIME 19:03
https://goaskle.com

FAQ

Does your plugin work with Woocommerce plugin?

Yes, of course. It works in two modes:
AUTOMATIC MODE
you only need to enter your VAT if you have it, if not then clear the VAT Number field in plugin settings
and CLEAR “Woocommerce Data Template” field and Save options

and MANUAL MODE
you need to create your own data template for QR code
and enter it in “Woocommerce Data Template” using the following variables {order_id}, {full_customer_name}, {total_amount}, {vat_amount}, {vat_number}, {order_date}, {order_time}, {wc_website}
You can use this template and copy paste and edit as you wish:
Order ID: {order_id}
{full_customer_name}
TOTAL AMOUNT: {total_amount}
VAT AMOUNT: {vat_amount}
VAT NUMBER: {vat_number}
DATE {order_date}
TIME {order_time}
{wc_website}

Don’t forget to Save options after changing your template

What is a QR Code?

Read Wikipedia QR Code article.

Will there be a PHP4 or lower than PHP7 version?

No. Please upgrade your PHP installation.

Does it work with PHP 7.3+ and with PHP 7.4+?

Yes it does.

Does it work with PHP 8?

Yes it does.

Which image type should I choose?

PNG is the preferred one. If you’re concerned about very old browser, use GIF instead. Or JPEG.

Which code generator should I choose?

If you’re on a webserver that disallows online connection from within php scripts, you should switch over to the QR Code Lib.

There is a red image instead of the QR Code image. What’s wrong?

You’re /qr-code-tag-goaskle-com/data/ directory is not writeable. Please adjust
your permissions. See Changing File Permissions.

How to use the tooltip mode?

See Plugin Help (below Plugin settings in your WordPress administration area).

There is only a blank page for large posts with your plugin! Why?

This is a PHP / WordPress problem. See Sudden empty / blank page for large posts with WordPress for problem description and solutions.

The margin with the Google API differs from that one created by the QR Code Lib. Why?

Google Chart API creates a different margin. I can’t tell you why – ask Google.

How I can check the generated QR Code?

You can use the Google ZXing online service

Where I can download a barcode reader for my mobile device?

The plugin is not available in (_put a language in here_). Why?

Because no one translated it yet into this language. How about you? See Plugin Help for translation hints!

I wanted to insert a dynamic QR code into one of my email templates, I tried a lot of plugins (7 of them), but none of them would add the QR to emails. This one was buried well down the list in the search results, so I have written a quick review to give it a boost. I was very surprised when it worked, but also very pleased 🙂
