What Are NFC Tags?
NFC, short for Near Field Communications , is a short range wireless RFID technology that makes use of interacting electromagnetic radio fields. NFC is meant for applications where a physical touch, or close to it, is required for a transaction. NFC is the emerging technology behind Google’s Android Mobile Wallet application and other contactless mobile payment solutions. With the announcement of iPhone 6, all modern smartphones will now be equipped with NFC.

In many cases, QR Codes can compliment NFC marketing efforts, especially in the early stages of NFC adoption. The gap between smartphones that can scan QR codes but not read NFC tags can be bridged with a coordinated effort from both. On Tappinn, marketers can use tools to track engagements initiated by NFC tag stickers or QR codes, all on the same platform.
