How it works
Simplytapp works by connecting existing debit, credit, gift, prepaid or store card payment credentials to your phone. Once connected you can use your phone to make purchases at any retailer that accepts NFC payments.
Simplytapp is secure. We use standard security measures to protect card and personal data. Local credentials are very similar to the plastic in your wallet. We have evolved to cloud based credential protection. We put focus on protecting the User's credentials, not the handset's ;)
What cards are currently available?
There are two types of cards available, anywhere cards and store cards. The anywhere cards cost a bit more to use but can be used anywhere NFC payments are taken.

Story: Due to our lack of huge bankroll, we are forced to pass on some of the cost to the users. Therefore, to be clear and fair the cost per card is as follows.
|Cost||Tapp Anywhere Card||Cyanogenmod Tapp Card||Store Card|
|Reload||N/A||Paypal Fee + $0.50||Free|
|Virtual Access (once)||$1||$1||$1|
- * Cost of the card - is the direct cost associated with our cost to acquire the payment forms
- * Reload costs - are related to the cost of doing business with Paypal. They charge us for accepting funds in payment for. However, these Paypal fees are expected to decline as we integrate better solutions
- * Virtual Access - is a one time cost that will help us keep our servers up and running in the short-term until we can find sustainable funding
