Place them anywhere they can be tapped to trigger a payment or donation.
'Near Field Communication' (NFC) is a very short range (less than inches) wireless system available in most recent smartphones.
NFC 'tags' are small computer chips that can be embedded in stickers, posters and more. The tags are read by simply tapping with a smartphone.
Tags can provide more information about an object, open a web link, and initiate a payment or donation.
Because tags are small, inexpensive, and tough, they can be placed just about anywhere.
Tags contain a unique ID and digital certificate, so they are difficult to copy or counterfeit and resistant to hacking.
Smartphones also contain a number of security features including PIN numbers and biometrics. Together they ensure payment transactions are secure.
Tags can be fixed to existing collateral such as posters, table tents, hangars, magnets and window stickers.
And tags are very affordable - often less than a dollar each! So you can place them in lots of locations.
Tags do not require any battery or ower source. They're rugged, weatherproof and can be placed indoors or outdoors.
Smartphone users can start tapping tags - even without an app!
However, we do also offer Android & iPhone apps that provide additional functionality and security features.
Although the majority of the latest smartphones have built-in NFC capabilities, we also offer QR codes that can be read by practically any smartphone.
It couldn't be easier. Just TAP the sticker, select the amount to donate, click and you're done.
I don't carry a lot of spare change. So being able to give with a simple tap of my phone is really convenient.
Our customers really like the new TAP tipping system. No need to deal with cash.
These days, I'm a big fan of curbside pickup. Now I can tip while social distancing. Cool!
Much easier than cash or cards - I always have my phone with me.
