Solving counterfeit problems with anti-counterfeiting QR Code stickers

In today’s interconnected world, when a product is trending and in high demand, the problem that brands often face is counterfeit goods. These counterfeit goods can compete with the sales of the real product and even damage the brand’s reputation with low-quality imitations. The most common products that are counterfeited are cosmetics, clothing, dietary supplements, herbal products, agricultural products, and even everyday items such as shampoo and soap.

Here are some specific examples of how these factors contribute to the problem of counterfeit goods:

  • Overproduction: Some luxury brands, for example, produce more product than they can sell. This excess inventory is often sold to counterfeiters, who then sell it as genuine.
  • Difficult to verify authenticity: Some products are difficult to verify for authenticity, such as liquid soap, which can be counterfeited by refilling genuine bottles with fake soap.
  • Counterfeiting by distributors: Distributors may counterfeit products or sell counterfeit goods in order to increase their profits.
  • Counterfeiting of anti-counterfeit stickers: Even anti-counterfeit stickers that do not have a QR code can be counterfeited. This is because counterfeiters can simply copy the design of the sticker and print it on their own.

QR Codes are square codes that are made up of black and white squares. They are widely used today and have revolutionized information retrieval. QR Codes can store and link to large amounts of data, making them ideal for product authentication. QR Codes are specifically designed to prevent counterfeiting by uniquely identifying each item and using encryption features to verify the authenticity of the product.

Birth Note’s anti-counterfeiting QR Code sticker is unique in that our counterfeit-proof QR Code stickers are all unique. They are produced specifically for each product, one code per item. When brands apply them to their products, they can rest assured that customers can scan the QR Code to determine whether the product is genuine.

Customers can immediately verify the authenticity of a product after purchase by scanning the QR Code.

Customers can easily verify the authenticity of a product by scanning the QR Code with a smartphone that has a QR Code scanning function, such as Line, Facebook Messenger, or the iPhone camera app. The system will then display the results of the authenticity check immediately. If the QR Code is scanned again, a notification will be displayed indicating that the product has been scanned before. The system will also store this information and notify the brand immediately. Additionally, the system can also tell you where each scan took place. This ensures that your product will not be counterfeited, or if it is counterfeited, you can track down the source of the counterfeiting.

After scanning the QR Code, customers will immediately know if the product is authentic. If the QR Code is scanned again, a notification will be displayed indicating that the product has been scanned before.

In addition to verifying the authenticity of products, brands can also offer promotions for customers to participate in, such as scanning to win prizes or collecting points. This can also generate sales from customers who purchase products. For example, a cosmetics brand organized a point-collecting campaign for users who purchased genuine products. The campaign offered a prize draw for customers who registered first. Customers could also collect points to redeem various prizes. If you were a customer, you would probably choose to use genuine products because you have already spent money on them, so you would want to have the opportunity to win prizes or use accumulated points to redeem prizes. This is better than buying counterfeit products and getting nothing in return. In fact, counterfeit products could even damage your skin. As a result, counterfeit goods sell less.

  1. Increased Confidence for Buyers: QR Codes can help to increase buyer confidence by providing a convenient and secure way to verify the authenticity of products. By scanning a QR Code with a smartphone, buyers can quickly and easily confirm that the product they are purchasing is genuine. This can help to protect consumers from buying counterfeit products, which can be dangerous or ineffective.
  2. Real-Time Counterfeit Detection: QR Codes can help to detect counterfeits in real time. When a QR Code is scanned multiple times, it is possible that the QR Code has been duplicated and placed on a counterfeit product. In this case, the brand owner will be notified of the duplicate scan. This information can then be used to identify areas where counterfeiting is occurring and to remove counterfeit products from the market immediately. This real-time response helps to protect brand reputation and consumer safety.
  3. Consumer Engagement: QR Codes can be used to engage consumers by providing access to product information, customized promotions, and exclusive content. This engagement can help to promote brand loyalty and customer satisfaction.
  4. Affordability: Using a secure QR Code is a cost-effective counterfeit prevention measure compared to traditional methods such as 3D hologram stickers or specialized packaging. This affordability makes it an attractive option for businesses of all sizes.

Overall, QR Codes are a valuable tool for businesses that want to protect their products from counterfeiting. They offer a number of benefits over other methods of product authentication, including ease of use, security, scalability, and affordability.

QR Codes offer a variety of solutions for brands that want to protect their products and consumers from counterfeiting. By adopting this technology, brands can:

  • Protecting the Brand Reputation: QR Code helps maintain the transparency and authenticity of the brand by ensuring that consumers are certain about purchasing genuine products. It builds trust and fosters consumer engagement with the brand.
  • Shielding Consumers from the Dangers of Counterfeit Products: Counterfeit goods often lack quality control and safety standards, posing risks to consumer health. The QR Code assists consumers in making informed decisions and avoiding counterfeit products.
  • Adding Value to the Brand: Combatting counterfeiting helps protect the brand’s reputation and market share, ultimately increasing overall value and profit-making capabilities.
  • Collecting In-Depth Consumer Data: QR Codes can gather valuable information about consumer behavior and product usage, enabling brands to make decisions based on this data.
  • Boosting Consumer Confidence: Providing a means to verify the authenticity of products instills confidence in consumers, allowing brands to cultivate trust and encourage repeat purchases.

Purchasing genuine products is considered a good choice because many people want to spend money on quality items that are guaranteed and not imitations lacking in quality. When buying, people seek products that are reliable and come with assurances, as opposed to counterfeit goods that may not be refundable or receive support in case of issues. With the QR Code verification system, authenticating your products becomes easier, making counterfeiting more challenging. This, in turn, increases confidence for customers who purchase your products
