How to Create an NFC Tag

8 minutes ago read

Introduction

 

QR Codes can sometime feel like a lot - pulling out your phone, opening up the camera, waiting for it to recognize the QR code, and then clicking the link. Ever wondered if there was an easier way? If users could just tap and go? That’s exactly what NFC technology enables.

 

In the fast-paced world of digital technology, consumers are now more than ever, used to just tapping to pay, ordering online, accessing properties, and exchanging information. The “contactless revolution” has taken over and is spreading to more and more countries.

With just five simple steps, QRlab.com empowers you to transform QR codes into fully functional NFC tags. This guide will provide a straightforward walkthrough, helping you to create NFC tags with ease.

Your 5-Step Guide to Creating an NFC Tag on QRlab.com

 

Step 0: Purchase an NFC Tag online

 

You can either buy one on QR Lab directly (coming soon!) or on a site like Amazon.

NFC tags can come in many forms depending on your use case - a sticker or stand with an NFC embedded for your restaurant tables for customers to tap to order and pay or an NFC business card to give your friends and new people you meet, where they can just tap it with their phone to receive your contact information for example. No more carrying a stack of business cards with you.

 

Step 1: Generate a QR Code at QRlab.com

 

Begin by visiting QRlab.com to create a QR code. This code will be the foundation of your NFC tag.

 

Step 2: Convert it to NFC

 

Once your QR code is ready, go to you account page and hit 'Manage' by the QR code you would like to convert and select 'Make NFC'. This option will convert your QR code into an NFC tag, and mark it with an "NFC" label. 

 


Step 3: Download the NFC Lab App

 

For iOS users, download the app from Apple Store. Android users can find it on Google Play.

 

 

Step 4: Scan Your QR Code with the NFC Lab App

 

Open the NFC Lab app and use it to scan the QR code you created. This step links your QR code to the app, setting the stage for NFC programming.

 

 

Step 5: Tap and Program Your NFC Tag

 

Finally, bring your NFC tag close to your device and tap it. This action programs the NFC tag with the information from your QR code. And just like that, your NFC tag is ready to use!

 


 



Practical Applications of Your NFC Tag

 

With your newly created NFC tag, the possibilities are endless. Use it for:

 

  • Business Promotions: Instant access to your business website or portfolio (the “link” category)
  • Personal Use: Share contact information (create a NFC business card by converting the “contact” QR code type to an NFC) or social media profiles in a tap.
