The best ways to Integrate NFC into your product Line

Products integrated with NFC contain a microchip that can be read by any NFC smartphone or device. NFC helps prevent counterfeiting, grey market diversion, and helps brands connect with their consumers.

How do I Integrate NFC Tags into products?

There are three general ways to integrate NFC Tags into your products. Let’s have a look at each of them.
Integrate NFC Tags

 Fully Integrated tags

Essentially, the NFC tags are fully integrated into the product. In the case of a pair of shoes, the tag might be in the liner. On our products, it’s often found behind the 3D printed molding. The key element is that the tags are added during the manufacturing process, making them fully integrated.

Additional hangtag 

With an Additional hangtag, the tags are added to additional swing tags, PVC cards, or similar items which are either attached or provided with the product. For example, a luxury watch might include an authentication card within the presentation box.

External tags

In this instance, the NFC tags are applied to the outside of the products. This can be an easy and flexible solution if, for example, the tags are added to food packaging or similar where integration or additional hang tags might be problematic.
