In a nutshell, NFC is the ability to send small packets of data between two NFC enabled devices (two-way or dual communication) or between an NFC sticker, label or tag to a phone or other NFC enabled device (one-way communication).

There’s a good chance that you’ve already used NFC and don’t even know about it. If you’ve used PayPass or Paywave (credit card tap technology) or have an access key for your building or work, then that’s most likely using NFC technology.


What are NFC Stickers?

NFC stickers are a specially made or designed label or sticker that has an NFC microchip and antenna embedded into the sticker. NFC stickers and labels come in a wide range of sizes, types and colours and there are multiple options for choosing what NFC tags and stickers will do when tapped by an NFC enabled device.

Here at Easitag we make it incredibly easy to get your hands on NFC stickers. You can buy NFC labels online through our online store or you can call us on 1800 077 375 to order labels to talk to us about NFC solutions for your business.

What’s an NFC Reader?

The most common and readily available NFC reader out there is most likely sitting in your pocket. A huge majority of Android mobile phones are already NFC enabled (see how to activate NFC on an android device).

Of course, there are many other NFC readers being used in everyday environments like buildings with access cards, mobile payment readers (like you see in many retail outlets today), and the Gocard and Myky card used in transport services.

What’s an NFC Encoder?

An NFC Encoder usually comes in the form of an App that you can download onto your smartphone. Easitag has an NFC Encoding app called the NFC Easiwayv Tools app and this enables you to encode NFC labels and sticker easily.

There’s a huge range of information you can add to your NFC labels with the NFC Easiwayv Tools app. Here’s a rundown:-

  • Plain Text (great for additional information or promotion info)
  • Web URL (link to a website of your choice)
  • Custom URL (for anything not http)
  • WiFi Network (enable visitors to access your WiFi network)
  • SMS (get people to SMS details for competitions, etc)
  • Email (similar to SMS, perfect for competitions, sign-ups, etc)
  • Telephone (enable the phone to call a particular number – after-hours access to a building for example)
  • Business Card (share your contact details via an NFC label)

How much do NFC stickers and labels cost?

If you’re purchasing NFC stickers from us and you would like to place an order of fewer than 200 labels you can easily buy them online. (We have special pricing for orders of 200 or more.)

To give you a rough idea of the cost of NFC stickers and labels, here’s a guide if you purchase them through Easitag:-

  • 1 to 200 labels @ $0.95+ GST each
  • 201- 500 labels @ $0.75+ GST each
  • 501- 2,000 labels @ $0.65+ GST each

Note - if you require NFC encoding this will incur a small additional cost.

What shapes and sizes do your NFC Stickers come in?

We offer two types of labels that come in two different formats – round and square labels with or a logo or printing on them.

Blank NFC Labels
Blank NFC stickers come in 27 millimetres round and 37-millimetre square options and are available for purchase on through our online store.

Custom NFC labels
For quantities of 10,000+, we can easily print your logo on our round and square NFC labels. If you have some custom print requirements please call us on 1800 077 375.

It’s hard to believe the release of the very first iPhone was only 13 years ago. If you had told the average consumer fifteen years ago that in the space of little over a decade, almost the entire population of the planet would have a mobile device that could give them instant access to the internet, pay for products, stream their favourite TV shows and music, use GPS to help them navigate, take high-quality video and replace a multitude of electronic and digital products, you could very well have been considered a nut case. Only a few short years later we’ve now come to rely on this technology and take it for granted in our everyday lives. The proliferation of mobile apps and products that integrate with mobile phones has created an entirely new market of opportunity, not only for business but for marketers and advertisers too.

With Christmas inching closer with every passing week, many retailers are starting to roll out and promote a range of Christmas stock in their stores. Some of these items are high-value and are unfortunately a target for thieves and criminals. To combat theft this holiday season many retailers look towards retail security methods that can best protect stock in-store and make sure valuable merchandise isn’t the target of theft and shop stealing.

5G is gradually being rolled out in Australia over the next 12 months or so, bringing with it a range of new possibilities. With the advent of 5G we’re going to see better speeds and more security around mobile payments that previously haven’t been possible. This means a surefire uptake in people tapping their devices to exchange information and we will soon see this as a standard procedure with mobile devices across Australia.
