Welcome to the future! 

 

Not to worry, it’s easy to program the NFC chip! 

All you need is an NFC-ready smartphone and a mobile application to write data into the NFC chip.

All you can do with your NFC chip is up to you! 

There are various uses for NFC chips. How about a digital business card to get you started?

One example of setting up the NFC digital business card:

  1. Go to https://vcard.link/card - a free online service for creating online business cards
  2. Enter your information and tap on Create Card
  3. In the card page you’ve just created, tap on the “Share” button, then copy either the Web URL or VCF file link
  4. Open the NFC Tools app, go to “Write” “Add a record” “URL/RUI”, and paste the Web URL/VCF file link you‘ve copied from vcard.link, and tap on “OK”
  5. Tap the “Write” button and the app will prompt you to scan the NFC tag
  6. Scan the NFC chip in the product 

Now you are all set and ready to go.

Note: please note that in the NFC Tools App, there is also a field for you to add “Contact” information. However, iOS does not support this way of adding contact information to NFC tags. 

There are also many other functions you can use your NFC chip for, including triggering smartphone functions and home automation for smart devices. Explore different ways of using the NFC chip with the vast resources available online. 

The future is here!
