Unsurprisingly the vending industry and unmanned kiosks are making conscious moves  and pushing boundaries with exciting new innovations to align with shifts in consumer behaviour.


Recently, Reis & Irvy, a robotic vending company, tapped Nayax Australia, as their exclusive cashless payment supplier for its automated Froyo Robot ice cream kiosks. 


The Nayax’s VPOS Touch device, allowed Reis & Irvy’s customers to use a wide range of cashless payment methods at the point of sale.  Moreover, the VPOS devices allow Reis & Irvy’s franchisees real-time sales reports and inventory data.


The managing director of Froyo Robotics, Reis & Irvy’s Australian licensor, Troy Bingham said,  “We only work with blue chip suppliers and as Nayax Australia leads the market in payment solutions, we felt it was a natural partnership. Reis & Irvy’s Australia will be rolling out up to 100 new robots across the country in the next year, all fitted with Nayax devices. We value the capabilities Nayax’s VPOS Touch card readers will bring to our franchisees and are excited to see how their consumer engagement tools will help us with customer satisfaction.”


Dylan Winik, Nayax Australia’s managing director, said “Nayax is delighted to partner with Reis & Irvy’s. We are excited by their futuristic approach to frozen treats vending and believe their choosing Nayax shows their understanding of the Australian landscape, where cashless payment is the norm for most customers. Nayax will enable Reis & Irvy’s to deliver a seamless purchasing experience to Australian consumers, and help their business succeed in the Australian market.”


The vending industry has come a long way. Enabling a more independent type of retail experience for consumers, from a big box to feed rattling coins into technological developments such as cashless payment is one of the best on-the-go solutions that align with shifts in consumer behaviour.


Let’s wait and see what future advancement it will continue to pursue to fit into a cashless world.
