HID Global launches suite of contactless payment stickers

HID Global, trusted leader in solutions for the delivery of secure identity, today announced the addition of a convenient yet sturdy mobile sticker format to its family of contactless payment and identification cards.

The stickers make it easier to add closed-loop payment and loyalty systems to existing automatic fare collection or retail systems, or to augment campus identification systems with new access control capabilities. They also can be affixed to mobile phones as a bridge to coming NFC mobile payment services.

Unlike other stickers, HID's sturdy, adhesive-backed stickers include an internal ferrite layer that shields electronics from interference even when attached to items containing metal, such as mobile phones. They come in a breakout ID-1 card format and can be printed with customer information including serial numbers, activation codes, messages, brand elements and/or promotional text and artwork. HID Global offers print customization in low quantities, providing companies with an economical way to extend their brand presence. To meet existing customer environments, HID's contactless payment and identification stickers are available with DESFire®, MIFARE® and iCLASS® technologies, ensuring maximum flexibility in design and use.
