Does the NFC reader along with the api have the ability to write, as well as read? Once the scanner / reader is open can I configure what is read and written. I want when the user holds their phone to the nfc reader that it sends information to my app from a custom pos solution. Right now I’m just testing if i send send a json object from the pos over nfc if the app will pick up the json object.

Are you referring to the App Bridge Scanner API? If so, I'm pretty sure it is read only and also only works using the iPhone's built-in NFC antenna.

Yes, that’s what I’m referring to. Working with iOS is optimal so that was fine. Normally NFC does both (read and write) but I wasn’t sure if Shopify had closed the hardware to only read to handle payment transactions.
