Our vending machines come standard with a dollar bill validator and coin changer. Also, our vending machines accept credit cards and have cashless options with Quicktap™ technology.
CAN I GET A CREDIT CARD READER ON MY VENDING MACHINE?
All our vending machines are capable of having a credit card reader installed. Working with our vending team, we will outfit your machine with the payment systems to meet your needs.
HOW MUCH ENERGY DOES A VENDING MACHINE CONSUME?
Our vending machines meet the highest standards for energy efficiency. Most of our machines are Energy Star certified. On average, they consume less than 7-8 kWh per day. The use of timers can reduce electrical expense. And when appropriate, energy management devices can be installed to further reduce electrical expense. Costs per kWh vary across the country. Contact your local utility company to determine your kWh cost.
