Kis Cards - Frequently Asked Questions

Kis Business Card Technology

How do the Kis Business Cards work?

The cards use NFC (Near Field Communication) & QR Code Technology. For NFC, simply bringing the card near a NFC enabled smart phone will allow the card to transfer the data. If you don't have NFC, simply scan the QR code with the camera app on your smartphone.

How fast do the Kis Business Cards work?

Our cards speed are different depending on the smart phone. We can confidently say that most smart phones will recieve the data between 1 - 3 seconds and sometimes even quicker!

How close does the card need to be to a smartphone for the NFC data to transfer?

You can either lay the Kis Business Card directly on top of the smartphone or place between 0 - 5cm away from the smartphone.

What phones are NFC Enabled?

90% of most modern smartphones are NFC Enabled. We are confident that your business card will work with almost all of your clients smartphones however if you are interested in seeing a list of all NFC enabled smartphones please click here Please note that some phones (for example, iPhone 7, 8 and X) do require a NFC reader app. Most modern phones will read NFC tags wherever you are on your phone!

Does NFC technology work on phones that have cases?

Yes. Most cases will allow NFC to continue to work, however we can not guaratee all cases will allow NFC to work. Some thicker cases may cause interference.

How close does the camera need to be to scan the QR code?

For quick and best results, make sure the code fills up the majority of the frame.

What phones are QR enabled?

All of them! However, most modern day smartphones will have QR built right into their camera. Some phones will unfortuantly need a QR app to scan the code.

What happens if my contact details or logo changes?

Each card is locked upon shipment which means the information cannot be erased, changed or modified in anyway. Not even we can change the information. This is a security step, to stop lost cards from being abused and manipulated. However, we do offer a re printing/encoding service. For only $12 per card, we can reprint and reencode a brand new card. You can change the design completely if you like, as long as it relates to your original purchase, we will print it!
