A robust technology. A reliable & secure system
The payment system put in place by our solution is concretely based on four elements: tags, terminals, a website and a management tool. The secure electronic payment technology called Near Field Communication (NFC) is at the heart of the MyBee Box solution.
This technology used by cashless cards and wristbands of your participants is the one found in contactless credit cards, ski passes or transit passes: a so-called passive NFC encrypted chip.
Allows you to set up your event and monitor its operations (points of sales/top-ups, vendors, items, prices, etc.).Allows you to set up your event and monitor its operations (points of sales/top-ups, vendors, items, prices, etc.).
Equipped with NFC card readers and a business application to cash-in and top-up credits on the tags.
In wristband or card type with the colors of the local team or your sponsors for example.
Allows you to top-up your tag online, disable it in case of loss or request the refund of remaining credits (optional).
This passive chip emits no wave and is therefore harmless for its holder. By going to the physical top-up points of your event or cashless.fr from their smartphone (option), your participants can exchange real money for credits loaded on their NFC tag.
The fast reading of their cashless card/wristband from a cash-in terminal of a bar or merchandising shop enables participants to exchange their credits in order to make purchases.
How does the MyBee Box solution work
for your participants and/or spectators?
participants and spectators for a seamless experience in 3 steps:
1. Retrieve and top-up your NFC tag
Before starting your marathon or attending the opening ceremony, your sports participants and spectators receive a cashless wristband on which they top-up the amount of their choice. These top-ups are made on-site at the top-up points or on cashless.fr (optional).
2. Use the solution to consume during the event
In between games or at the end of a sports event, spectators and attendees can cool down by paying for their consumption in just a few seconds, thanks to their NFC tag on payment terminals located in the various points of sale managed by the staff members.
3. Get your balance refunded after the event on cashless.fr
Once your event is over, users can be refunded their remaining credits online on their cashless.fr account (to be created if necessary), by filling in their identity, a contact email, bank details and the code alphanumeric located on their NFC tag.

This allowed us during the event to change the POS terminals and therefore to limit the wait. Participants could consume without constraint, our turnover has increased significantly thanks to the cashless system. We could not do without it. “
