The flexible and thin NFC-Sticker is based on the technologies for contactless credit cards and ensures reliable and secure NFC functionality within the payment infrastructure. This makes the sticker a viable alternative or complement to contactless cards. Mobile phones, which are always within reach, are particularly well suited devices for carrying the sticker. Due to its special shielding layer the sticker delivers reliable performance even on metal housings. Furthermore, the design ensures short transaction times and long reading ranges.
As the NFC-Sticker easily fits in with contactless infrastructure, it can not only be integrated with payment systems but is also suitable for customer loyalty programs such as the collection of bonus points, for admittance, as tickets for public transportation, parking facilities or events, as well as for identification purposes such as proof of age. The NFC-Sticker can be customized as needed, for instance in terms of the chip, layout or top-layer. Standard personalization is possible by embedding in a carrier card. A MasterCard certified product version has been launched successfully in the market and further options will follow.
