From autumn 2022, payment slips will disappear and be replaced by QR bills or QR payment parts. With this plugin you can create QR invoices that comply with Swiss standards.
This plugin can:
– Create QR invoices and send them to your customers via WooCommerce.
– Create QR invoices according to your design specifications.
– Send QR invoices optionally by post.
Install the plugin and create an account at https://qrmodul.ch/en/step-by-step/. On QR Modul you can manage your data and create invoices according to your design requirements. When a customer purchases from your Webshop (WooCommerce), a QR invoice is created based on this order and your settings and sent to the customer by email from your website.
In addition, you have the option of sending the invoices by post via the QR module. Invoices sent by post are often paid more quickly than by e-mail. Therefore, QR Module offers the flexibility for both options.
