NFC in Retail and Shops

Seamless payment solutions and stronger connections with customers

NFC technology changed the retail industry forever with the introduction of pay by smartphone. Use of NFC in a retail environment enhances brand discovery, accelerates secured payments, and creates ongoing opportunities to enable brand engagement and streamlined commerce. The combination of commonly available NFC-enabled smartphones (more than 3 billion in use worldwide!) and versatile, easy-to-use NFC tags gives retailers a powerful tool to engage consumers with brands and increase conversions.

  • Leverage widely available, easy-to-use technology that speeds payments, increases consumer engagement, and builds brand loyalty both inside and outside traditional retail environments.

  • Engage in-store shoppers to increase consumer-product interactions, provide useful in-the-moment product information and comparisons.

  • Personalize consumers’ experience at every stage of the purchasing process, from pre-sale to in-store to post-purchase communication, loyalty programs, and even e-commerce reordering

  • Easily integrate NFC tags into a wide range of media (smart posters, out-of-home displays, direct mail, shelf labels, product packaging and point-of-purchase displays)

Uniquely NFC
