The increasing number of internet users has led to many shop owners turning to online as well as contactless payment systems. QR codes are one such tool, which allows consumers to make payments, get information about products, avail rewards or discounts, and share information. While some mobile devices are pre-equipped with QR scanners, the iPhone lacks the feature.
So, here is a list of seven of the best QR code scanner apps that will make your scanning process easy on the iPhone.
