This has been a truly exciting week. Since the Podcast on Automatic Merchandiser with Elliot Maras, editor, we have been bombarded with email and information requests! It seems that once the Vending Industry understands the real meaning of "Cashless", more players are wanting to be in the arena.
Cashless has always been viewed as Credit Card and "Pre-paid" has been left out in the cold. "Pre-paid" means the vending operator gets their money UP FRONT - before the customer has ever purchased anything!! What a concept! This means that the expense of the Microtronic Reader is virtually paid for within a month!
There was obviously not enough time to really talk about all the benefits of Cashless vending on the short Podcast, but I will try to answer as many questions as I can, either here or direct email - just stay tuned!!
