    How can Jiffee replace NFC?

  • Contactless NFC payments are arguably the most convenient and popular way to pay today. Unfortunately the POS infrastructure replacement cost is a major roadblock against contactless payments becoming a global standard. Jiffee is an attractive alternative. For a fraction of the cost, thanks to our Bluetooth Adapter a merchant can convert an existing POS terminal into a fully capable contactless mobile payment solution.
  • While mobile payments are more and more popular, existing schemes are not suitable for retail applications.
  • NFC is based on 30-year-old legacy technology. We can offer a much better user experience with 21st-century technologies.



  • Jiffee uses Bluetooth Smart instead of NFC. Our breakthrough technology limits Jiffee’s operating range to 5-10 cm or (2-4 inches) – close enough for unambiguous communication, far away enough to be convenient.
  • Any Bluetooth 4.0+ enabled device can be used to pay or accept payments. The Jiffee mPOS application is just one example.
  • Jiffee can be used in existing POS terminals and electronic cash registers through our USB Jiffee Bluetooth Adapter.
  • IoT and Smart Cities are gaining hold. Jiffee is an existing technology enabling convenient payments in a variety of connected devices. Any device with Bluetooth Smart and an Internet connection can accept Jiffee payments.
  • Provided you solve some important technical problems (which we have), Bluetooth payments offer a vast number of use cases from traditional retail, self-service machines, IoT appliances and mobile-to-mobile payments.


  • Because the installed base of POS terminals and existing electronic cash registers is not Bluetooth Smart enabled, we have developed the easy to install, plug-and-play Jiffee Bluetooth Adapter.
  • The Bluetooth Adapter enables existing infrastructure to accept Jiffee payments, offering a better user experience for a fraction of the cost.
  • The Bluetooth Adapter is connected to POS terminals or electronic cash registers via a regular or micro USB port.
  • The current version is optimized for stationary terminals and ECRs, but the technology can be shrunk to fit handheld POS terminals.
