In today’s world, any event or festival is much bigger than in previous times. These events or festivals totally depend on the way it was organized and how many people were present there to attend. Relate to it, we’re introducing a new payment method for the food festival-RFID.
But how are they different from the previous ones? “Cashless” is the word that changes the game from the old one. Food Festivals are introduced with new payment methods and now it is replacing debit, and credit cards with RFID readers.
These people were given the bands and cards for payment at the stalls in the food festival. These cards will gain access to the food festival and also buy the bulk products at the events and the festivals easily.
What is RFID?
RFID, the short form for Radio Frequency Identification, is basically a wireless form of communication that uses the electromagnetic field, and that field collides with the objects in its way like any person, animal, etc.
It consists of two components: RFID Tags and Readers.
RFID Reader – A device that emits the radio waves and has also one or more antennas and in return gets back the signals from the tag.
RFID Tags – The system to track those items that have smart barcodes with them.
How does RFID work?
This system has three components: a scanning antenna and a transceiver together known as RFID Readers and a transponder.
RFID readers are particularly of two types– Fixed Readers and Mobile Readers.
After the Reader is activated, the wave is translated into the data coming from the tag to the antenna.
In the Tag, there is also a transponder itself. It works on the read ranges that vary on many factors like what type of tag is it, the type of RFID Reader, frequency, and interference from other tags and readers.
The one with also a vital power source has a very long read range.
Advantages of Having RFID Reader in Food Festival
There is n number of reasons why this new payment method is also getting so popular these days at all the events and food festivals. Following are the benefits that are attracting the cashless payment method to all the events managers.
No lines for payment
We all have seen that there is a long line for doing the payment at every event, festival, or social event. But the introduction of the RFID systems, not only reduces the wastage of time but also eliminates the long queues.
For eliminating the lines, the system can be used to scan tickets at the entry gate. The same readers can be used as wrist bands and that can be helpful in the purchasing of food, items, beverages, etc.
It is one of the best payment gateways to use in such types of events.
The new payment methods at the food festivals reduce the hassle of doing the payment at the stalls and this, in turn, makes the customers not wait in a queue for long for the payment.

Security is a thing that everyone wants when they are exchanging money. Going with lots of money in pockets is always a concern. Due to this, the guests are always worried about the theft or loss of wallets.

There are two main issues with the RFID-
