How to use QR codes on tickets to verify event attendees
One of the primary purposes of QR codes on tickets is to verify that the ticket is valid.
It helps prevent ticket fraud and ensures that event organizers only accept valid tickets to an event.
You can create thousands of unique QR codes for ticket events using a bulk URL QR code with an authentication log-in and token (the token is the unique number per QR code generated).
When the unique QR code is scanned, this directs to the website URL of the management with an authentication log-in and token seen on the URL of the website.
These codes are entered into the electronic database or an in-house system before distribution.
Thus, the event management needs to have a website where the databases of tickets are found.
This is how it looks like https://yourdomain.com/login/authenticate=serial/9861.
The database system does not allow two identical serial numbers, so the ticket cannot have a duplicate.
The staff can then verify the event ticket details in the system and compare if it matches the printed ticket by scanning the QR code.
