See our Products page for more information.
Q: Can I buy a TagKing QR Coded Tag now?
A: Yes. But our instant online ordering process is undergoing a revamp. Until it is re-released, you will need to order manually, via our contact us page.
Q: Is there an ongoing cost/fee for TagKing QR Coded Tags?
A: Only if the tag was purchased through our subscription based model. Some Tags are sold via our all-inclusive, unlimited use model. It depends on what type of Tag you have and what purpose it was purchased for.
Q: Can I use a bunch of TagKing QR Coded Tags as advertising or marketing tools for my business?
A: Yes, absolutely. We can customise a batch of Tags to display some information specific to your business. For example, you may like to have a page header that shows your logo and phone number, and have the logo linking to your business website. You may like to have the Tag page display information specific to your customer, or specific to one or more of your products. Talk to us if you would like to learn more.
Q: I can't log in to edit my Tag - Why can't I log in?
A: If you are trying to edit your Tag via the "Log In" link or via the icon and it isn't working, you may have not created an account yet. If that is the case, either edit your Tag directly via the "Edit this Tag" link (via /tag/edit/nnnnnn where nnnnnn is the tag number) or create an account and then add your Tags to the account.
Further Info: Tags can be edited directly, via the "Edit This Tag" link, which is accessed either from the top of the page, or via the icon of three horizontal bars at the top of the screen, or once an account has been created, multiple Tags can be added into the account and then all of the Tags can be edited via the single login. If you had three Tags but no account, you would have to log in three separate times to edit each of the three Tags, that is why creating an account is best if you have more than one Tag.
Q: How long is the QR code image printed or etched onto the aluminium plate expected to last?
A: The life expectancy of the Tag will depend on factors such as the material the collar is made from.
Our test dog has been wearing 7 Tags for the last 18 months, attached to a leather collar with metal D-Ring and metal buckle. All tags are still readable and scannable.
Please ensure the new Tag is not connected with other metal Tags. If you wish to have your dog wear multiple tags, it is best to attach them to different parts of the collar, so they can’t rub together.
We hope to soon be able to offer clear heatshrink sheaths for sale on our website, for those who wish to further protect their Tag. We are also trying to source rubber edge guards, to help prevent jingling noise, which annoys some people.
