Today, RFID labels are predominantly used for inventory management on the retail floor. After the point of sale, the labels are often destroyed when the point of sale RFID device performs an EPC kill command, or because the customer tears the label off after purchase.
The reason for destroying the label shortly after POS is perceived to have its origin in consumer privacy concerns. However, as this white paper from NXP explains, more and more customers consciously decide to leave the RFID label on the garment until they arrive at home and are certain they will keep the product. This white paper examines how consumers can benefit from fashion RFID labels.
