A reliable & secure system. A robust technology
The MyBee Box cashless solution is based on NFC (Near Field Communication), a secure and robust cloud-based payment technology. In practice, the payment system we put in place is based on four elements:
Allows the complete configuration of your event and the monitoring of operations on-site (articles, staff members, points of sale, prices, etc.).
Equipped with NFC readers and cash register software to top-up credits or exchange them for food & beverages.
NFC cards/wristbands with the colors of your event, your association or your sponsors.
Website that students can access to top-up their NFC tag online or block it in case of loss (stable connection required).
In addition to fluidifying your transactions, this system is very intuitive to handle. Your students may not know it, but they already use the NFC technology of our cashless solution: skiing when they pass the cable car gantry with their package or when they pay with contactless through their new generation credit card. These are so-called passive encrypted NFC chips, which emits no waves and therefore remains harmless for their holders.
Once at the physical top-up points of your event or online on cashless.fr (option), students exchange real money for credits, then top-up on their cashless card or wristband. The information contained on their NFC tag is then read in a few seconds by the POS terminals, in a scan, which allows the exchange of their credits against consumption (food or drink).
