At AlibabaPrints,  we provide 5 different types of NFC Chips,they are NTAG® Series, MIFARE Classic®, MIFARE Ultralight®, MIFARE® DESFire® and ICODE® Series. Generally speaking, NTAG® Series is compatible with every NFC device.

The Operative Frequency of NFC Tags is 13.56 MHz. NFC Tags does not work on metal surfaces. If you need to use the NFC Tags on metal, you can choose our NFC On-Metal Tags which are specially made for this purpose.

Refer to the following tables that will help you better understand what kind of NFC tags you need.
