Rerouting QR code linked to URL with Capital Letters

I recently had some labels made with QR codes that are supposed to link to my website but I didn't realize that squarespace only allows URLs with lowercase letters, and the QR codes were made using Capital letters.
 
Here's an example:
 
Capital (as it was in the spreadsheet):

Lowercase (as I should have had it in the spreadsheet):

I entered the 301 rerouting code under the advanced tab but it doesn't reroute when I scan the QR code.

If you scan the QR code you can see that it doesn't redirect. Is there a way to do this using the labels I already have created? Is there any way to manually code a Squarespace URL using capital letters?

Thanks!IMG-8693.thumb.JPG.490c409580ec360dcbc10b9c0d51e572.JPG

I provided the company that made the labels with a spreadsheet of serial numbers to associate with the QR codes but I didn't realize that it would be a huge problem to have the letters in CAPS instead of lowercase. I am now unable to create the URL associated with the QR codes in squarespace so my labels are effectively useless, and they weren't cheap..

The redirect is not working. Please provide a screenshot of the URL mappings panel so we can see the instruction.

The syntax is incorrect. It should look like this (you may need to scroll horizontally to see the full line of text below):

/authenticity/p/656A7949V73930YT -> /authenticity/p/656a7949v73930yt 301
