Vending industry

vending solutions / leveraging new sales opportunities

Vending machines offer faster service, a wider selection of products and 24/7 access. Today, cashless payment is transforming the vending industry, with consumers increasingly short on cash and long on electronic payment means such as local debit or credit cards, mobile phones or digital wallets. The vending industry is seeking opportunities to capture more impulse purchases and higher spending per consumer, while maintaining margins through improved price-setting flexibility.

We offer NFC native payment solutions and provide the vending industry with end-to-end integrated solutions from acceptance of any cashless payment methods through to centralized transaction management and reporting tools. We also enable vendors to deploy loyalty and co-branded card programs through innovative e-money services. All this creates more opportunities for impulse buys and generates more sales while reducing cost.

Generate more immediate sales

  • Capture domestic and foreign consumer impulse purchases due to lack of change
  • Increase spending per consumer (multi-purchase scenarios, easier access to value goods, special offers...)
  • Improve pricing flexibility by enabling price adjustment to the cent 


Optimize payment costs

  • Decrease cash management cost: direct (handling) and indirect (evaporation, security vandalism)
  • Aggregate cashless transactions for lower acquisition cost

Increased knowledge of customer spending behaviour

  • Monitor nationality, multi-purchase, average ticket, date, location…to increase knowledge of consumer behavior and push specific discount 
  • Leverage centralized cashless solutions to implement loyalty programs
  • Leverage cashless systems to integrate complete third party telemetry solutions  

Invest in a future proof solution

  • Comply with latest contactless payment methods and NFC wallets (Apple Pay, Google, PayPal, Yapital,)
  • Ensure your system remains secure and up-to-date with the latest security standards (PCI DSS)
  • Protect your business standards through our active role in new security standards (PCI SSC, EMVCo, Merchant council Industry, W3C)
