QR Codes Make LPG Easy

I know what you’re thinking! 

What on earth is a QR code?

They are those funny looking squares with all the little square dots.

Now I know that some of you already knew that but many people don’t. 

But QR codes are starting to pop up everywhere you look, so it’s time to start using them!

QR code stands for Quick Response Code. 

It works a lot like a bar code, only better. 

It’s faster and contains more data. 

While they can be used for many things, the typical consumer application is as a link to a web page.

Your smartphone either has a QR reader already loaded from the factory or you can download one from your iPhone or Android app store. 

For example, I downloaded the free QR Droid Private™ onto my Android phone. 

There are many free QR code apps, but I liked this one because it doesn’t ask for access to all of your personal data. 

I’m sure there are many other good ones, too.

To use a QR code, and go to the associated web page, all you do is turn on the app and point your phone at the QR code. 

The next thing you see is the web page opening on your phone. 

That’s all there is to it.

How Do QR Codes Make LPG Easy for You?

Now you can use QR codes to order and pay for your LPG. 

Just scan the QR code and a simple order form or payment page appears.

As our web site is fully compatible with all mobile phones and tablets, the only thing we needed to do was to give you an easy way to get there. 

QR codes were the perfect solution to this challenge.

However, we also needed to figure out how to get the QR codes out to you. 

The answer was simple. 

Just print them on the delivery docket envelopes. 

Then, every time you get a gas delivery, you also get the QR codes for your payment and to re-order gas.

We started using these envelopes, around the country, last month and they will be our standard going forward. 

So, next time you get a delivery, hang onto the envelope so you can easily connect when it’s time to re-order or pay.

It’s easy as!
