Touchfree Vending Is Here with "No Cost" Hardware from PayRange!

Since the advent of the vending machine, the consumer experience has been essentially the same: consumers insert payment then press a button to dispense the product. As the global pandemic shows little signs of slowing, leading machine manufacturers have partnered with PayRange to reinvent the purchase transaction into a touchfree experience. 

Virtually no machines are equipped to vend without physical contact, resulting in the consumer still having to touch the machine's keypad to complete a purchase. Driven by consumer requests, PayRange organized an industry-wide effort to introduce a new touchfree experience. PayRange developed an end-to-end solution that leverages the existing PayRange BluKey to allow consumers to make their product selection up to six feet from the machine using the PayRange App - never having to touch the machine itself.

Six leading vending manufacturers have committed to deploying the touchless solution with their upcoming firmware releases. These include Automatic Merchandising Systems, Crane Merchandising Systems, Fastcorp, Vendo Sanden, and Wittern Group (USI). In addition, Vendors Exchange will include the protocol in the universal control board (UCB) it manufactures.

With growing consumer reluctance in touching machines, and after receiving queries from several large vending operators, PayRange discussed the matter with manufacturers to evolve the industry and they quickly agreed to implement the solution. Most manufacturers are planning to offer the touchfree firmware upgrade at no cost to operators. We believe this technology will benefit the industry long past the COVID-19 era by providing a much faster and simpler user experience.The new protocol will support multiple keypad options (numeric, alphanumeric, etc.) and a planogram sync is not required.

Operators should contact their machine manufacturer for information on firmware upgrades. Order additional BluKey devices with this limited time offer:
