December 2nd, 2019 | Posted by Lindsay Hottovy in Vending machines - (Comments Off on 5 Must-Have Features for Your Vending Machine)

Equipping your vending machine with the latest technology is a sure-fire way to ensure that you are setting your vending business up for complete success. eVending provides vendors with standard and optional features to do just that. Below are our top five features that are a must-have for any vending business.

Greenlite

Greenlite Cashless Payment System is an optional feature that will take your vending business to a whole new level. Greenlite offers cashless vending for your machine, meaning that it will accept credit, debit and mobile payments. With less and less people carrying cash around, installing Greenlite is a must in order to increase your profit. In fact, those who have installed Greenlite have reported an increase in machine sales by an average of 35%. Additionally, Greenlite gives you the capability to track your sales and inventory from wherever you are. 

iVend

A standard feature on eVending’s machines, the iVend Delivery Sensor System ensures your customers are receiving their product 100% of the time. This feature uses infrared technology, so if your items are not vending correctly, your customers will receive their money back. They will also have the option to try and vend a different item. iVend increases your customer’s satisfaction by virtually eliminating misvends from your machine.  

ADA Compliant

Did you know that eVending’s most popular vending machine models comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations?  Standard ADA Compliant models include, but are not limited to the Futura Snack and Drink Combo, CB500 Cold Drink, 29 Selection Combo Elevator, and Coffee Express Hot Beverage, as well as our new Elite Series Snack 5W and 6W machines. This means that the usability components of a vending machine must be between 15” and 48” from the floor.  In addition, most of our other equipment models are standard ADA-ready, meaning they have the option to include an ADA delivery box in order to make the unit fully ADA Compliant. This option includes a lift mechanism, so that the product can be delivered at 15”. It also only takes one hand to operate this feature. 

Flexible Product Capability

Product packages are always changing, so what good is your machine if it does not change with them? eVending’s vending machines come standard with adjustable snack and drink selections. This feature allows you to easily configure the machine to fit the product packaging that you are selling. Now, you can forget about trying to find products that fit your machine perfectly. Instead, you can adjust the machine to your products.

Easy Vending

Our machines come equipped with features that make vending easy for everyone. For one, our machines include LED lights to properly showcase your products. It allows your customers to see your products clearly in your machine. Our machines also have customer-friendly controls with large selection buttons and Braille identification. These features make vending easy for everyone.

For the past 88 years it has been our ownership’s goal to keep our customers up to date on trends in the vending industry. Our Greenlite Cashless System is the latest “must-have” that we have developed to serve our valued customers. Greenlite accepts debit cards, credit cards, and contactless payments from mobile devices. According to a recent census taken by the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) debit and credit cards are accepted on 89% of vending machines and contactless payments (Apple Pay, Android Pay, etc) are accepted on 77% of vending machines. 81% of vending transactions are made with debit or credit cards and 15% of vending transactions are made with contactless payments.  

Years ago people were apprehensive to use cashless payments on vending machines for fear of getting their information stolen or misused. However, now times have changed. People feel more safe and secure using credit and debit cards on machines. Customers feel so comfortable and find using them so convenient that over 80% of all vending transactions are with either credit or debit cards. The same pattern will likely happen with contactless payments on mobile devices. Right now only 15% of vending purchases are made with contactless payments. As the public learns more about contactless payments and grows more confident using them, the number of vending transactions using contactless payments will certainly rise. The Greenlite Cashless System accepts debit cards, credit cards, Android Pay, Apple Pay and other contactless payments. We really want to equip our customers with the tools necessary to thrive in a world that is growing more and more cashless. Greenlite not only accepts cashless payments but it provides the technology and online application necessary to organize and track purchases. Our Greenlite Data Plan users can track their inventory online and see how much money each machine is making. Greenlite also provides access detailed reports from your computer or smartphone. 

On average, the industry is seeing a 18%-30% increase in machine sales after adding a cashless payment system. It makes financial sense to invest in a cashless payment system. Thriving in the vending industry requires accepting cashless payments. For more information about our Greenlite Cashless System contact your eVending sales associate or call 1-888-836-3638.
