share your card with a tap
With HiHello, you can turn your digital business card into a free NFC card in seconds—all you need is an NFC tag.
Near-field communication (NFC) business cards enable you to share your contact information with a single tap. NFC business cards have two components: a digital business card and an NFC tag.
NFC tags come in several forms, like stickers, pop sockets, keychains, and physical cards. They contain tiny microchips, and when tapped to another smartphone, the information paired with your tag (like the link to your business card) automatically appears.
HiHello is a mobile-first business card app that provides free support for NFC business cards—all you need is an NFC tag. Once you have an NFC tag, you can write your digital business card to it, allowing you to share your card with anyone with a single tap.
HiHello does not supply or sell NFC tags, unlike several NFC-only business card providers. We do this for a reason—at HiHello, we don’t believe in charging customers an inflated price for something available at a minimal cost on third-party sites like Amazon and Etsy.
Ready to make your own free NFC business card? Download the HiHello app on the App Store or Google Play, create a digital business card, and write your card to an NFC tag.
Once you’ve paired your digital business card with your NFC tag, you can begin sharing. If you use a tag like a sticker or pop socket, place it on your phone. If you use any other accessories, make sure you have them on hand.
When you want to share your NFC business card, take your phone (or another NFC accessory) and tap it on the other person’s smartphone. Your HiHello business card will instantly appear on their screen.
