For the ease and convenience of our customers, Maryland Vending provides credit card readers on vending machines at busier locations.
“More than 40 percent of U.S. adults say they can go a week without paying for something with cash, according to a survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports last year, but most of the roughly 5 million vending machines in the U.S. still accept only coins or bills, even as prices rise. Vending industry sales fell 18.3 percent between 2007 and 2011, to 1990s levels, before recovering slightly last year, to $19.3 billion.
By 2018 there will be an estimated 2 million smart vending machines in the U.S.”
