Bill Validator & Coin Mechanism Special

There’s little that is more frustrating as a vendor than being unable to receive your customer’s money.  And it’s equally as frustrating for customers wanting to purchase products from you machine! Your customer chooses an item or maybe two that they want from your machine but when they try to insert money, there is a jam or a faulty piece of equipment that prevents the sale. Old or unreliable coin mechanisms and bill validators simply aren’t worth keeping around. Vendnet’s Conlux Special gives you a good deal on replacing your coin mechanism or bill validator.

Credit will not be given for unit(s) that are not accompanied by rebate form at the time of receipt by Vendnet. All units sent in to Vendnet for credit become the sole property of Vendnet and will not be returned.

Here are three important facts to remember to help you understand how valuable mobile payments are.

  • There are more than a billion transactions in the US each year that don’t involve cash.

The Importance of Proper Vending Machine Maintenance

Vending Machine Maintenance

The importance of proper vending machine maintenance is something that cannot be overstated enough. Not only do many businesses and organizations use vending machines as a reliable supplementary income, but many people depend on vending machines as an important part of their day at the same time. Medical vending machines help keep track of supplies moving in and out of a healthcare facility and therefore needs reliable vending. Even snack vending machines may be the necessary boost in energy that a student needs in between classes.

Vending Machine Service

When discussing vending machine maintenance, however, it’s important to pay attention to not just how often your machines are being serviced, but who is doing the service in the first place. In Salt Lake City, law enforcement officials recently released information about a man who they believed had broken into more than 40 different vending machines at grocery stores around the state. His activities stretched from West Jordan to Evanston to Cedar City and beyond.

The perpetrator most often targeted the types of vending machines that were situated in front of a grocery store rather than the machines which reside inside the store, due to the fact that he was less likely to be under some kind of surveillance. Detectives estimated that he obtained up to $350 from each incident and the total damage of his crime spree was over $33,000.

So how was this criminal mastermind able to target so many vending machines successfully? The answer is unfortunately simple: vending machine maintenance was contracted out to a third party at many of these businesses and employees just didn’t know who was supposed to be repairing them and when.

Because store employees had no idea how often their machines needed to be serviced or even what company was doing the servicing, this Utah man was able to cause $33,000 in damage and loss in just a few short months. This is just one example that underlines the point that vending machine repair and maintenance not only needs to be maintained regularly to keep things up and running, but to prevent criminals from taking advantage of a system.

The importance of proper vending machine maintenance is something that you should always be focused on. In addition to the fact that you want to make sure that all of your equipment is always functioning properly, failure to understand who is providing service or what they’re doing could lead to disastrous results – as over 40 vending machine owners in Salt Lake City recently discovered. These are the types of mistakes that you, your business and your customers cannot afford to make.

Ways to Prevent a Vending Machine From Taking Your Money Without Providing a Product

35586453_lAlmost everyone has lost money in a vending machine. You are thirsty or hungry for a snack and put your money in the slot. You may see a little waver of your item in the vending machine shelf, but it doesn’t drop. Your money is gone and you have nothing to show for it.

You may hit or kick the machine hoping to dislodge your item. You frantically push the coin return hoping to get your money back. Still nothing. All this hammering does is possibly damage the machine. There is also a risk that you can be seriously injured if you happen to dislodge the machine and it falls on you. On the other hand, there may be a way to prevent this frustration from happening again.

Advice to Customers

One secret to receiving your product and not losing your money lies in looking carefully at how the items are loaded in the machine before you make your selection. If the location of your item has one spiral, the front right corner of the package should fit in front of the spiral. If there are two spirals, the item should have both front corners in front of the spiral. If the corners are behind the spirals, the item will not get snatched and dropped into the tray.

Advice to Vending Machine Owners

If you are the owner of a vending machine, your customers may kick and hit and damage your machine when they lose their money and do not get their product. Some may even put an “Out of Order” note on the front of the machine which will lose you revenue as other potential customers walk away and do not buy anything.

Proper loading of the vending machine is vital to its functioning. Your employees or independent contractors who are charged with loading the machines must be sure to put the items in properly so the corners are aligned as they should be. If the loader is sloppy and puts the items in at an angle, your customers will lose their money, not get their product, possibly damage your machine and your vending machine business will lose revenue.
