How NFC Wallet passes work.
In addition to bank payment cards, the standard Apple and Google Wallet apps can also securely store NFC enabled digital passes for non-payment applications – including tickets, boarding passes, loyalty cards, insurance and membership IDs, gift cards, vouchers and more.
With just a tap from a phone, VTAP NFC readers auto-detect and read the relevant encrypted pass – for a secure, fast and super-convenient user experience. The user’s pass data is transferred to the connected system to initiate the appropriate action, such as open a turnstile with a ticket, check-in to an event or club, collect loyalty points or redeem a voucher.
NFC wallet passes can be added to a wallet from an email, SMS, website or in-app link.
Organisations can develop and brand their own passes or use the services of a pass provider for end-to-end management.
Use: fast, secure
VTAP readers auto-detect the relevant NFC pass – no need to search for and scan a QR code.
Passes can also be set to pop-up on a user’s device based on location or time.
Push notifications to passes open up a direct channel for communication.
Notifications can pop-up with updates to passes, timely reminders, incentives and offers.
