The Canadian National Vending Alliance (CNVA), a coalition of the largest vending operators across Canada, has partnered with PayRange to bring mobile payment across 100% of its vending machines coast-to-coast.
PayRange claims that its mobile payment platforms will enable CNVA to bring cashless payment acceptance to their vending machines without the expense or complexity of installing card readers and network connections.
Vending machines will need to be fitted with BluKey dongle to enable users make purchases using the PayRange App, which is available for iOS and Android.
Customers can fund the app with credit and debit cards and Apple Pay, PayRange added.
Canadian National Vending Alliance president Steve Tremblay said: "The CNVA prides itself on addressing the needs of consumers and with more people becoming increasingly cashless, we realized we needed a mobile payment solution to bring to all our machines.
"With the PayRange platform, we're able to provide consumers with greater choice not only in how to pay, but also in what they can purchase from the machines as they are no longer constrained by the change in their pockets," Tremblay added.
