Near-field communication (NFC) technology was developed to allow the exchange of information between two devices using “magnetic induction.” NFC is based on radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, which stores and retrieves data from tags attached to objects. This is how we make secure transactions like contactless payments using digital wallets like Apple Pay or Samsung Pay.
NFCs in Fashion
What if you can earn gift cards for wearing your favorite brand? We know of influencers making bank from creating content for brands online but what about loyal customers that do not have the gift to create or are too shy to post online? We want to bring greater value to all that showed endless support for our brand. The answer that we found is through a reward system that utilizes the power of NFCs.
By integrating NFCs into our physical streetwear clothing line, we’ll be able to understand customer behavior in greater depth. With your consent, the NFC chip on your purchased AKINGS piece will send signals to an app that will track data of when, where, and how you use your clothes in your daily life.
Whether you’re going for a grocery run, grabbing your favorite coffee, or a night out with friends, you’ll earn points to get exciting rewards like gift cards, VIP invites to exclusive events and digital items from partner brands that share our ethos of making everyone feel like kings.
If you’re feeling extra confident, share photos or videos of yourself in AKINGS online to receive even more benefits from each impression you get.
We understand that data protection and privacy are sensitive matters for everyone which is why we made sure that users will be able to control what data they want to provide to us. What we can promise is that the data collected will be used for the constant improvement of your customer experience and nothing more. No payment and cash out needed.
