NFC means Near Field Communication. It allows devices close to each other to communicate. We use this technology to communicate between your Coins.ph app and your beep™ card.
Please note that certain models of some devices with NFC may not be compatible with beep™ loading. If your device has something listed in the NFC Controller column on the grid on this list, it is possible that you may have a type of NFC Controller that is not compatible with beep™ loading.
