What brings the biggest interest to the visitors is the cashless bezel option. The RV-900 bill validator equipped with the cashless bezel is able to handle all the payment methods including cash, QR code scanning and Union Pay Quick Pass NFC on a single standard panel on the vending machine. The cashless bezel is connected to the backend management network 24x7 online, through which cashless payment, transaction management, status monitor and route planning are enabled. Compared to the existing solutions, the new solution by CPI offers the highest integration, compatibility and expansibility. For both retrofit and new vending machines, the all-in-one bezel offers an opportunity for the operator to achieve higher profitability with reasonable investment.

“Though cashless is everywhere in our daily life, the latest data reviles that 40-50% of the consumers are willing to pay by cash on a vending machine.” Bo Xing, CPI’s Senior Director of GC Sales suggests, “We’ve developed the new product based on the real needs of the market. Only by offering the consumers with the freedom to select how they would like to pay, the sales opportunity could be maximized for the operators. In the upcoming era of IoT, the operation management platform will play a more important role to improve the operation efficiency.”
