Is iQR.AU free to use?

What is the redirection page and how do I get rid of it?

For Dynamic Links, you may find a redirect page which comes up for 5 seconds on occasion. This is there for 2 reasons - for security and validation (we validate outbound URLs and make sure they are still safe) and for a little bit of shameless self promotion. We want everyone to know about the service. You will be able to get rid of it in future as a paid service for your URL.

How may scans to I get on my Dynamic QR Code before the redirection page shows UP?

For Dynamic Links, every new gode gets 50 free scans before the redirection page *may* be presented.

The dynamic QR will revert to standard behaviour and randomly show the redirect page.
