Step 4
Tap or Scan Your Card

Now to the fun part. Start tapping and scanning your new contactless business card.

Tapping on an NFC compatible device

Making contactless connections has never been easier using the power of NFC. Using the same technology as your credit or bank cards, your contactless business card tells the NFC compatible device to perform an action, in this case to open your profile! All you need to do is present your card to the device as below.

Apple devices

Please tap your Kinect Card near the camera section on the reverse of the phone as this is where the NFC reader is in apple devices. The device needs to be unlocked and ensure that the camera app is not open.

Android devices

Some android devices need NFC turning on, if the NFC function is on, simply present your card to the centre reverse of the device, slightly lower down than an Apple device, again the device needs to be unlocked

Scanning the QR code

In recent years with the introduction of track and trace, most people know how to scan a QR code. It is also a very efficient way of transferring your details quickly to a large number of people at once, simply display your QR code and ask for people to scan the QR to open your Kinect card profile, from there they can save your details directly to their device.

Metal Hybrid Cards

The metal hybrid card only transmits the information via the logo side of your card, so please ensure that the logo is facing the device as instructed above.
