The tappit cashless solution uses Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, allowing data to be stored on an object that can communicate with an RFID device.
Wristbands can communicate with readers to enable access to an event, to load and redeem funds against purchases or activate social media. RFID uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags that store electronic information. Near-field Communication is a term you might also have heard – this refers to the specific set of parameters used for cashless payments. If you want to know more about this technology here’s some further reading but for the best resource we suggest a chat with our Chief Technical Officer who’s happy to talk RFID all day long.
