Aside from creating dynamic, interactive advertising campaigns, NFC technology can streamline your workflow, processes, and consumer communication. Products integrated with NFC contain a microchip that can be read by any NFC smartphone or device.

How do I Integrate NFC Tags into my products?

NFC opens up a whole new world of interactivity, helps prevent counterfeiting, grey market diversion, and helps brands connect with their consumers. There are three general ways to integrate NFC Tags into your products.
Let’s have a look at each of them-

Contactless Retail Ready Smart Displays

Fully Integrated tags

Essentially, the NFC tags are fully integrated or embedded into your product during the manufacturing process. In the case of a pair of shoes, the tag might be in the liner. Often, an NFC tag can be found behind the outward face of 3DNFC products.

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.

Diageo's prototype "smart bottle" uses near-field communication technology to interact with consumers and deter counterfeiters.

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.
