How does the business card work with NFC?

Now, technology has overtaken the paper form and opened the way for more modern and greater possibilities. The latest innovation, business cards with NFC, offer a simple and user-friendly way for business people to exchange your contact without the need to know about various apps or require special technical knowledge.

How does the business card work with NFC? In this blog post you will get an insight into the world of wireless exchange of information via phone.

The digital business card - explained simply!

Digital business card is a file that contains data about a company and a person like a traditional business card, but more contact information than a paper business card.

Lemontaps' digital business card is your digital profile. This profile includes all your contact information, profile picture, a link to LinkedIn, to the website and files.

More space for company links

Compared to a paper business card, in addition to your position, name, other contact information, you can also add a link to a video, photos and social media accounts to the digital business card.

You can share all the information of the digital business card easily and simply. Since the digital business card is an online profile, your information is stored on a personal Lemontaps profile. The profile can be accessed via a link and your username.

Your Lemontaps business card will be automatically linked to your registered profile.

The difference between Rfid and Nfc

Radio Frequency Identification

It refers to a technology called Radio Frequency Identification, which enables companies to store and process a wide range of information quickly and efficiently.

By using tags, companies can track the location and identification of goods to enable efficient warehouse management and automatic monitoring of goods movements and deliveries.


NFC originated from the radio frequency identification system. It establishes wireless communication between two devices located at a distance of less than 10 cm.

Here, NFC uses a combination of radio waves and magnetic fields that generate a unique signal when devices communicate with each other.

Data exchange in short distance

NFC is a perfect option when you need to exchange data in a short distance. This can be on a business trip on the plane, at a conference or a trade fair that you meet a new contact.

Unlike radio frequency identification, NFC is a two-dimensional technology because it enables faster, more secure and more efficient data transmission.

NFC technology versatile

NFC is also a better choice than Bluetooth or Wi-Fi because it is easier to establish a connection and save energy for short transmissions.

NFC can be used to exchange virtual business cards, set up user accounts, make payments, transmit data to printers, and more.

Low cost of cards

NFC has proven to be very useful as it can transmit contact information over short distances and at low cost.

Without app

You don't need an app or any special technical knowledge to use NFC business cards. All you need is a smartphone or other nfc enabled device. You design and activate your business card with your profile picture on our solution for the best exchange of contact information.

Share the digital business card with NFC business card

The NFC business card contains an NFC chip that enables sharing by touch. The technology is already familiar from Apple Pay or contactless payment with the EC card. The recipient must have his "NFC" turned on in the device. Then the card can be held against the back of the cell phone.

Use via iPhone

On iPhones, the NFC interface is located at the top edge and is always enabled on newer iPhones. On older iPhones, the NFC technology must first be activated.

Use via Android

For Android smartphones, the position varies, so we recommend swiping the card along the back of your device. For older phones that are not NFC compatible, we still print a QR code on the card that makes sharing easy.
