Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA) and its wholly owned subsidiary Vending Management Services are rolling out new cashless vending machines in NSW and Victoria as part of a three-month trial.

One hundred and fifty glass-front machines that accept Visa, Mastercard, coins and notes are being piloted at high-profile venues including Sydney Airport and Melbourne’s Southern Cross station.

The machines are powered by the new Cashless Recognition System, a specialised technology that streamlines the process of payment reconciliation.

“The pilots are running smoothly with good consumer take up,” said CCA general manager – Coke vending, Gary Meier.

“Australian consumers are already big users of cards for immediate purchase transactions… We can now offer vending machines that give consumers the option to use their cards and make vending even easier and more convenient.”

The cashless technology will be rolled out to vending machines across Australia later this year if the pilot proves successful.
