You are a salesperson or FAE and are looking for ways to sell more Near-Field-Communication (NFC) products? This community provides ideas, information, and materials that help you to successfully sell more NFC products.





Use Cases

Convincing a customer of NFC starts with presenting clear use cases and benefits. Although the following use cases are already implemented in the market, not all customers know that they can benefit from NFC in these applications. Therefore, it is your opportunity to propose them to the customer!


Authentication, Automatic Configuration

"Everything which has consumables or accessories."



Configuration, Parametrization, Diagnosis, FW Update

"Replace DIP switches and service UARTs – control via an app without power."




"Easy pairing."



Access Control

"Card reading for the next generation of residential locks."




Training material

  • The complete training presentation “How to sell NFC” can be used for branch office training or for self-studying.
  • DFAE training for NFC: Get certified in the NFC domain. Learn how to build easy and convenient solutions for customers using NTAG tags and readers.
  • NFC Training and Support Catalog: In this catalog, you’ll find online training sessions that will enrich your knowledge of NFC products and how to use them.


Customer presentations


The NFC Cube is perfectly suited for a first NFC demo and demonstrates all use case principles. An instruction video as well as more information can be found here. If you need an NFC Cube, please ask your NXP DBM or


The Schneider Zelio timer relay is an excellent demo to show how NFC adds value for parameterization and diagnosis – basically replacing mechanical elements like DIP switches, rotary switches, or connectors. Search your local RS  shop or other electronics distributor for RENF22RMMW. Here are some selected links:

This NTAG 5 Demo Kit New is mainly targeted for sales and FAEs to show quick and easy functionality of NTAG 5 products to the customers. The kit is a combination of 3 boards in a single pack, one each for the switch, link, and boost products. 


The demo boards are enabled to show the product features either with the NFC cube or with AndroidTM and iOS apps available for free download in the respective App stores.
