Who cam use KiwiCamp

What is KiwiCash?

KiwiCash is a smart way of making what we call “micro-payments” for access and services around NZ.

Using near field communication (NFC) technology your KiwiCash card identifies you and connects you to your online KiwiCash account. This allows you to make secure, easy payments for services with a tap of your card on one of our card readers.

Online account can be created on our app or via www.kiwicash.nz

Inside your KiwiCash card

Inside every KiwiCash card is a tiny computer, and a very fine copper wire which wraps around the whole device and works as an aerial.

If this aerial is damaged or broken, then your card will stop working. That’s why it’s best not to drill holes in it, bite it, bend it, put it in the tumble dryer etc.

Buying a KiwiCash Digital Key.

Purchase your KiwiCash digital Key for $5.00 from your local KiwiCash retailer. See Homepage map. https://www.kiwicamp.nz/
