When working in the mobile field, you must have heard about the concepts of platform-specific redirect links, deeplinks, and deferred deeplinks. Today, let's dive deeper into these concepts, their usage, advantages, and how to choose the appropriate type.


What is a Deeplink?

Deeplinks can be used to directly send users to a specific page within an app, such as a product page or a payment page. Deeplink Disadvantage: Requires integration.

Platform-Specific Redirect Link (PSRL)

What is a Deferred Deeplink?

A deferred deeplink is a special type of deeplink that can be used to open a mobile application even if it's not installed on the user's device. When a user clicks on a deferred deeplink, if the app is already installed, it will be redirected to the deeplink. If the user hasn't installed the app, they will be directed to the respective app store to install it. This type of link is particularly useful for minimizing lost traffic, especially in remarketing cases. Deferred Deeplink Disadvantage: Requires technical involvement for integration. Qrdy also supports creating this type of link easily, as mentioned at the end of the article.
