This article focuses on the benefits of cashless payment systems in vending machines in the U.S. Cashless payment can speed up service, which is critical at peak periods when lines build up. It simplifies day-to-day operations since vending operators have to collect less cash and experience less vandalism and cash losses. And it is particularly convenient for customers who may not have the cash or coins needed to make their purchase. INSET: Contactless Cards: The Next Generation.
