Most QR platforms charge more for scans above a limit, or for additional QR codes above a limit. Phy’s Per-Tap plan offers unlimited scans and QR codes because we are confident that the superior experience our platform enables will incentivize users to engage to a great enough degree that we can justify billing only for measured engagement. This is a great deal for QR and NFC customers.
Unfortunately, with Physical Web beacons, the primary user interface is Android Nearby. Google filters content according to a private algorithm, so we have no control over the frequency that people will see our preview pages.
Google says that Nearby Notifications should be considered “bonus” traffic. With Physical Web beacons, we often see thousands of scans for each interaction. This makes it impractical for us to charge by the tap.
If, however, you have an app-based beacon application, where you control the user interface and are not reliant on Android Nearby, then contact us to discuss pricing.
