How to Order:
We accept the following credit or debit cards; Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and PayPal. If you select PayPal as your payment type we do offer a service called “Bill Me Later” through PayPal. This will allow you to finance any purchase over $99 if you meet their credit criteria. Sorry, we do not accept cash, checks, money orders or wire transfers. If you do not have a credit card or PayPal account we suggest going to Wal-Mart and getting a prepaid Visa Card.
Do I pay before or after I receive my locations?
We do require payment up front. This is due to our Lead List costs. To learn more please visit the Quality Control section of our FAQ.
Definition: The ability to reject a location if you don’t think it is a good fit for your vending machine.
Yes, you have the right to refuse a location if you deem it unacceptable for any reason.
Keep in mind, even for the most experienced vendors, it is very difficult to judge how a location is going to perform.
This is why we backup every location with our Platinum Warranty. Please read the Warranty Information section of our FAQ for more information.
*Keurig K-Cup Locations do not qualify for Right of Refusal. All Keurig Locations must be attempted for at least 14 Days.
This is a general, but not comprehensive, list of the most popular types of businesses for vending machines.

Is a charity required?
Yes, we do require that you affiliate with a 501(c)3 charity before we locate your machines.
Local charities may be willing to partner with you to come up with a vending program. Some of our most successful clients have affiliated with a local animal shelter or food bank.
Generally with local charities you will need to get a signed letter of permission stating that you can solicit businesses on their behalf. In return you will make a monthly contribution to the charity which would depend on how many machines you have located in the field. These charities most likely will not be able to provide you with stickers for your machines so you may need to print them on your own.
The question always comes, “How long will it take to get my machines located?” There are many variables that go into it but we will go over the most important things you should know.
Quality is comprised of two separate but very important parts; The Lead List and Call Verification.
Starting a vending business can be a great way to supplement your income or even replace your current full time job. Working with so many incredible entrepreneurs like you has provided us with many insights into what makes someone successful in the vending business. We’ve broken it down into four categories; Machines, Locations, Products and Service. By creating a business model that considers these four areas you will be well on your way to running a successful vending business.
Choosing a machine that is a good fit for your business is very important. Here are the three key ways that bulk vending machines vary.
Locations Everyone has heard the platitude “Location, Location, Location.” Location does matter but what is more important is matching your business model with the right types of locations. And, understanding how your location decisions affect other areas like Machines, Products and Service.
Other things to consider:
The products you offer will affect the types of locations you can target and your service cycle. This is the one area that most new vendors don’t realize is so important.
Service Enough can’t be said for providing outstanding service to your customers. Dressing professional, being friendly and having a smile on your face will go a long way. The most important aspect of providing quality service is sticking to a regular service schedule to ensure your customers are cared for properly.
