Wiki: Contact Sharing NFC Business cards

As the creator of one such site dropped into an old thread today, and some sites seem to be no more I thought it might be useful to list some of the sites we know about.

There is nothing to say that you can’t just save the information anywhere and provide a URL in NDEF on your chip. In fact most of these look like that is what they do. I have no experience of any of these, but these are the ones that I could find that are currently active. This has been arranged in alphabetical order of domain name so as to not show any preference.

As I get time I will create a post showing you how to do the same sort of thing without using any of these services.

Found it. Thanks

You are welcome. Thank you for being willing to engage in a discussion of your solution.

@ChrisCollinsSrDotCom is the owner of QRPOP and has proven to be happy to talk about what he feels differentiates his offering from others. If you have questions, I believe he will happily answer them.

@ChrisCollinsSrDotCom what differentiates your product from a popl xl that also has a qr code on it?

I don’t intend to answer for him but @Pilgrimsmaster asked a similar question. Here was the answer.

Sorry for delay, I was limited in my replies because I was new to the site…

An additional difference to add on to what has already been posted is that the XL and qrpop differ in size, the XL is 4 x 4 inches and restricted to use with only the company which sells it.

The qrpop is basically the size of a typical NFC sticker or tag and can be used to work with any web address or url you want making it a future resistant sharing device because of it’s agnostic ability.

This allows you to not be tied into one profile provider. You can buy a domin name for 12 bucks a year from Google and then you can always redirect your domain to any profile you want and share it using the same qrpop device.

Here is another big difference.

Most of the nfc profile providers require the product to be activated buy the profile holder. This means if I can’t write an nfc tag then the nfc tag and other products like it are not helpful to me.

QrPop is ready to be used right out of the box, no activation required. The owner of the device doesn’t need to activate the nfc or QR code, they just login if they want to make changes to the device sharing details.

Does this make sense to you?

Makes complete sense :smile: thanks for the reply mate

You are welcome. Take care

So should I just add the links here to the companies to add to your list? I was gonna just send like 2or 3 max. There are to many to list.

That would work. Thank you.

There are so many companies doing this, here are just a few more. I have a long list with companies from all over the world. I had to stop at 3 .

From what I can tell the big difference is how the profile looks. Take care everyone.

It looks like a new Webpage with very little info on the website and some dead links.

A lot of “promises” but no substance.
No technical data
You cant even go to the store for pricing…

@nic Do you have any further Info.

He descargado esta app gratuita que está para iOS y Android. Dappy app
Sirve para tener de forma muy visual todas tus RRSS, links…. En una web para que compres sus tags y la utilices, pero en lugar de sus tags yo he puesto la url en mi chip y funciona genial.
Muy recomendada.
