NFC Products – Encoding your Tags:
NFC Products can encode your tags for you so that you can use them as soon as you receive them. To encode we charge a maximum of 10p per item depending on quantity ordered. Alternatively you may wish to encode the tags yourself. This can be quite straightforward however if you are ordering a large quantity of tags it may be easier for you if we encode them for you as we have the necessary encoding equipment to allow a quick and efficient service.
Once you have chosen your selected product(s), you will see a drop down selector box showing the following information (we recommend locking all items so they cannot be changed):
None – no encoding required
URL not locked – a website URL leaving the tag unlocked
URL locked – a website URL leaving locking the tag
Text not locked – text/message/info leaving the tag unlocked
Text locked – text/message/info locking the tag
Choose which best suits your project and then type in the details in the enter encoding details area marked: URL is for website information (website address) and text is for you to type in a message. Our “how to order” guide on each product page will assist you in completing all information required. If you experience any issues please give us a call to help.
To Lock or not to Lock?:
If you lock a tag, the information cannot be changed by anyone. We would recommend this option so your information stored on the tag is safe and secure.
If you leave a tag unlocked, you can use the tag over and over again however, the information can be changed. Please be aware that others could then change the information on your tag without your knowledge.
Encoding tags yourself:
Small quantities of tags, say up to 200/300, can be encoded by yourself if you would prefer. The NXP tagwriter app is perfect to enable you to do this. This can be downloaded from our Links page on this website to an NFC enabled handset. Alternatively we can assist with recommending and sourcing other dedicated NFC encoding devices.
Effective encoding – make it count!
Think about the possibilities, you can put any website information, marketing information, offers, discounts, Wi-Fi links, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, reminders, instructions….. on the sticker/tag for all to see and use as you choose. Easy!
Please see our NFC Genie for further help with encoding on our FAQ’s page
