NFC Tags on Amazon

GoToTags sells small quantities of products, including NFC tags on its Amazon store. Customers looking for larger quantities of NFC tags, and/or other services such as custom printing or NFC tag encoding should purchase directly from the GoToTags Store.

Unencoded NFC Tags

Most of the NFC tags sold on Amazon, including the NFC tags that GoToTags offers have not been encoded. The user memory of the NFC chip has not been written to and the chips have not been locked.

iPhone/iOS Users

*** IMPORTANT  – Do not open NFC tags package before reading! ***

Blank NFC tags can not be read by an iPhone until they have been NDEF encoded. If the customer does not have an alternate way of encoding the NFC tags, the tags will need to be returned to Amazon and new NFC tags will need to be purchased from the GoToTags Store that have been encoded. Read more about NFC tags for iPhone.

Once the NFC tags have been encoded, the GoToTags iPhone App can be used to read the NFC tags and perform device actions.

NFC Tag Encoding

Most systems require the NFC tags to be encoded before use. The GoToTags NFC Encoder and/or various Android NFC apps can be used to encode the NFC tags; this requires additional hardware such as an NFC reader/writer or an Android phone.
