There's an affordable solution for every environment and application - both indoors and outdoors.
In 2022, there are over 6 billion smartphones around the world capable of reading barcodes and short-range wireless 'NFC' tags.
Often, the easiest way to initiate a payment or donation is to provide customers or donors with just such a tag. They're inexpensive, robust, reliable and can be distributed in lots of ways. They don't require power or maintenance, and are often the best choice for the job.
Reading barcodes or tags with a smartphone requires close interaction. This might not be possible in large venues or crowds, or when social distancing is required.
The TAP platform solves this problem with a number of patent-pending payment 'beacons'. These incorporate the latest Bluetooth and cellular technology that allow payments, tips and donations to be made at a distance.
Some people prefer to make in-person payments or donations using traditional credit and debit cards, or mobile payment solutions such as Apple Pay and Google Pay.
The TAP platform also incorporates patent-pending standalone devices that function as a smart tag, beacon and card reader - all in one!
TAP Bluetooth beacons contain a small battery than can last up to 12 months before it can be replaced by the user.
They're rugged, weatherproof and can be placed indoors or outdoors.
TAP barcodes and tags can be read without a dedicated mobile app. However, for additional security and to use our beacons, we recommend that users download a FREE Android or iPhone app that can be installed in just minutes.
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.
