NFC Ring with Payment technology



  • I also would love an update, Realising full well that there are NDA's etc, but hopeful there is some small update or time estimate we can be given.


  • NFC Ring Team

    Going as quick as we can guys! We're rocking though!



  • @johnyma22 Any chance we'll get an update soon? It's been almost 3 months since you gave some insight. Thanks.



  • @johnyma22 My mother-in-law (the one who pre-ordered this payment ring for me as a Christmas gift) is getting anxious... She wants to know if her money is still getting the present she bought for me.

    I mean, I don't say this to make you feel bad or anything. Your customers just need to know what's going on. It's your duty to us. If you don't communicate, we assume the worst and some (I'm sure more than a few have already) will want to back out. Like @ScottG said, it's been 3 months, a full quarter of a year, since the last update.

    Hey man, yeah it's taking a long time but we have some pretty amazing things to announce and those things take time to prepare/launch. We don't want to do things by half!

    Safe to say everything is going to land, just a matter of timing!

    FWIW we haven't taken any money from anyone so she is totally safe :)

    STRONG AND STABLE

    Tease indeed!! Can we get a firm date or anything? I've been waiting since at least November, I'm to the point I'd like a refund unless "Before July" is going to happen. :(



  • No one has paid anything yet for those rings. There is nothing to refund.

    However, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease give info



  • @johnyma22

    Any sort of update here? This is getting really drawn out. I understand delays but the lack of communication is a bit frustrating. Thanks.



  • @scottg I got an email from the company saying they're expecting an August launch, but besides that I've heard nothing.



  • I got nfc smart ring and want to put bank details in to pay for things at the till any good apps for AIB bank to smart nfc ring



  • Which are the banks that can be linked to the ring? How can I link my bank account with the ring?



  • @lg The payment ring is not available yet. It's a whole separate product. I've been in touch with the developers and they hope to release some news within the following weeks. They have been in some legal issues that they are trying to resolve.

  • This is some impressive lack of communication. It seems that they've decided that leading people on is more important than simply giving them disappointing information as many failing Kickstarter/Indiegogo startups have done. Sad, looks like I'll have to look into another alternative, I definitely liked their ring designs more than the competitors. Disappointing but realistic expectations are always better than 'soon' or 'in a few weeks' every half year.

    I suspect the ring will be linked to a Pre-Pay Visa card. Where you put funds onto the ring before it can be used. The source of those funds is up to you, it could be your debit/bank details, or another credit card. Keeping it Pre-Pay resolves a lot of legal issues. Pretty sure that'll be the business model for NFCRing.

    @joe-0
    I have seen exactly the same process with Kerv. They had a year of ‘not long now’ and ‘just a few weeks away’. Sometimes honesty would be nice. Personally I think the whole NFC chip biz is a complete minefield of legal issues and rights. I’m not surprised that there’s court hold ups. We all know the technology works. But because it’s such a burgeoning expanding market, competition is fierce to grab as much legal IP pie as you can.



  • @didgesteve they have the rings and back end systems in place (aparently) just waiting for something before they release more news

    Sure, 'coming soon'.
    Forgive my scepticism



  • I've been checking this forum everyday for some kind of update. 😐. I really hope by the end of the month at the latest they come out with something official.
