We have been ordering black lobster claw lanyards and bespoke printed lanyards for over 2 years, over which time we have found Universal Smart Cards to be efficient, reliable and great value for money.  I would whole heartedly recommend them.

At the World Yoga festival 2017 we required a simple payment system for our guests, volunteers and staff (around 200 people) to obtain food & beverage at 9 onsite independent food vendors. The system had to be able to make transactions offline since mobile coverage on site was patchy. Universal Smart Cards (USC) provided the 'Universal Cash' cards capable of being topped up with funds on site as required by authorised staff. The system uses generic NFC mobile phones (also supplied by USC) as merchant terminals and load stations. The system worked a treat with users and merchants reporting both ease and speed of use. At the end of the 3-day festival, all redemptions made by merchants were totalled together and the merchants paid by direct bank transfer.


We were able to monitor costs even down to individual transactions. Many merchants asked why such a system was not available at other festivals. We had limited ATM facilities on site and this limited cash expenditure by festival goers with merchants that did not accept bank cards. We have therefore decided to enlarge the system next year for all festival goers by enabling all merchants with terminals. We expect this to increase turnover for our merchants.


The Universal Cash system is easy to deploy and easy to use. If you are using papers coupons and vouchers you need to understand the greater convenience and control possible through the Universal Cash system being offered by Universal Smart Cards.

I have been dealing with USC for many years now and I find that they are an extremely helpful and efficient company to work with.

The smartcard industry is extremely competitive and I am inundated with companies telling me that they can supply me cards quicker and cheaper. However, I keep placing business with USC as I know that as well as competitive pricing and fair lead times, they will offer excellent customer service.  Our account manager is extremely knowledgeable and is quick to respond to queries and requests.  Having had the same contact for so long has really helped us build a good working relationship.

I would recommend USC to anyone looking for a professional, knowledgeable, reliable and cost effective supplier of quality smartcards.

Deyrick pulled out all the stops, found us what we wanted and put up with our for calling weekly updates. We have since had a couple of further orders for these cards.

We have requested on several occasions prices for Mifare, Proximity cards and Fobs and have always found you to be competitive and open to negotiation. When we have requested samples we have received them within a couple of days.

“I first encountered Universal Smart Cards some 15 years ago and continue to do business with them due to their excellent customer service. In terms of communication, feedback and product knowledge I believe they are second to none.

I often have customers who need a straightforward solution to a complex problem and I like USC’s willingness and enthusiasm to assist me to find a mutually acceptable result.

I have always found USC staff helpful, courteous, and conscientious when needing a swift response to a tight deadline.

I have attended meetings with USC and am impressed by their overall vision and clarity and believe in their honesty to provide support for my business.

I would recommend Universal Smart Cards to people who need reliable supply of product at competitive prices.

I would recommend Universal Smart Cards to people who need guidance from experienced specialists and believe USC will continue to work alongside the customer until Project is completed successfully.

Over the years one important reason to continue to do business with USC is that I trust their integrity as a supplier unreservedly.”
