When you share your business cards with someone, they can share their contact information back with you right from your card. Once they send your their contact information you will receive an email with their contact card (vcard file format) and you will also be able to access their data from your dashboard under the contact page.
How it works
All existing business cards have this on by default. If you are creating a new card, in the settings part of the card you will see a on/off button titled "Allow others to send you their contact information" leave this on then select a notification preference in the dropdown below and save your card. Now you will have the "Send me your contact details" button on your card.
When someone opens your business card, they will see a button that says "Send me your contact info". When they click on this button the a form will show on their phones and if they fill it, you will receive their contact information and you will be able to add them to your address book.
How it to enable this feature
To enable the "Send me your contact info" button on your new or existing business card, please go to the edit page of your business card and scroll down to the settings section and turn the "Allow others to send you their contact information" on.
- Login to your account on businesscards.io
- Create a new card or edit an existing card
- Scroll to the Settings section
- Enable the "Allow others to send you their contact information" option
- Now your cards will show a new button called "Share your contact information with me"
Where to find the contacts that you received
All the contacts that you receive from your card are stored in your dashboard under the contact tab, from there you can download them to add them to your phone or computer address book. If you selected to receive a notification when someone sends you their information you will receive an email with their vCard attached.
The contact downloads will be in vcard format which is the standard address book contact file format and is supported by all address book applications.
