How do I activate Whitelisting with a Smappee Smart Charge Card or other RFID card?

When 'Swipe and charge (Whitelisting)' is selected as a 'Session Activation Method' (see this article), RFID tokens of people authorized to charge their EV at the charging station, should be added to the whitelist. RFID tokens that have been added to this whitelist will be able to charge for free. If desired, the charging station owner can always download an overview of charging sessions belonging to a certain RFID token and use this to internally bill the user for consumed energy.

 

To add a token to the whitelist, you must first find the RFID code belonging to the card you wish to use. Usually this is printed on the back of the card, but if it is not printed you can use certain third party tools like the Android app NFC Tools to find the code. In the case of a Smappee Smart Charge Card, you can use the barcode printed on the back of the card or manually use the RFID code:

You can add a RFID by clicking on the green button:

The 'Add token' menu will pop up. Here you can scan the barcode or enter the RFID code shown on the back of the card. Optionally, you can also enter an identification (the card holder's name), priority (used in case overload balancing is active and charging currents need to be reduced), and expiration date.

 

Using the Smappee dashboard:

Open your dashboard and go to the 'Whitelisting' card. Select 'Add token':
