As the use of smartphones and other digital technologies becomes widespread, we're quickly moving towards a cashless society.
Although many enjoy this convenience, it has significantly decreased cash donations to non-profits.
TAP solves this problem.
Inexpensive wireless tags are used to trigger donations and payments in the real world. Any time. Any place.
And the popularity of smartphones now works in our favor - 3 billion smartphones are ready for action!
Unlike many payment systems, TAP is available on both Apple and Android devices. And users can choose from a variety of existing payment sources - credit and debit cards, bank accounts and more.
It's fast, easy, convenient, and very secure.
The TAP system leverages inexpensive wireless tags to initiate payments and donations. Complex and expensive point-of-sale systems are not required.
TAP is available on many of the billions of smartphones currently in use. This includes both Apple iPhone and Android devices. The TAP system is entirely cross-platform.
TAP tags are rugged and inexpensive. They can be included on many kinds of media including flyers, brochures, flyers, table tents and posters.
As TAP tags are inexpensive and standalone, thousands can be quickly produced and distributed. Donation points can be literally anywhere.
Our research indicates that TAP donations are typically larger than a cash donation. And users have the ability to contribute more at a later time or place.
Unlike cash or payment cards, TAP provides non-profits with the ability to gather information about donors, and connect and communicate with them.
Donors can also easily share information about their donation or recipient via social media accounts, and encourage friends and followers to also contribute.
TAP payments and donations can be made using many payment sources. This includes popular credit and debit cards, direct debit from banking accounts and others.
Users have online access to all their transaction data at any time - from any mobile device or computer.
All TAP transactions pass through encrypted channels. User accounts are secured using biometrics and multi-factor authentication.
For each transaction, a user can choose whether to remain anonymous or share their identity and contact information with the recipient. In any case, identifiable information is never shared with third parties.
To design the future effectively, you must first let go of the past.

All transaction data is securely stored on TAP servers.
For donors, this means contribution information is always available for accounting purposes, and receipts are available at any time.
With a wealth of transaction data, non-profits can use a number of the available reporting functions to gain powerful insights about donations. This is a great help in planning further fundraising activities.
Fast. Easy. Convenient.
TAP partners can conduct fundraising campaigns using the platform app, or they may choose to incorporate the TAP functionality into their own mobile app using a provided SDK.
Various customization options are available including language and user interface.
Partners may also choose to provide barcode scanning capabilities for backwards compatiability with older mobile devices, and instances where a secure TAP tag is not required.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
