- €200 signed up bonus and commercial viability of this service
Our fully managed service encourages clients to signed up with a €200 bonus. This is payable after the trial period (2 months) is completed and we can confirm that the machine is commercially viable in the location. In order to establish that the service is viable in the location we have the following criteria:
- The machine must turn at least €20 per day (for combo) and €10 per day (for coffee) or their equivalent of €600 per month (for combo) or €300 per month (for coffee).
- The trial period is 2 months
In case the machine doesn’t meet minimum commercial criteria we always give the option to our clients to keep the service rolling at a monthly servicing fee:
- For combo machines: €150 + VAT per month (in this case sales per month of the machine must be of at least €300)
- For coffee machines: €100 + VAT per month (in this case sales per month of the machine must be of at least €150)
Alternatively we can always remove the machine at no cost for our clients.
- Cost products subsidy by employers
If your intention is to subsidize the items from the vending machine for your employees or customers, we have several alternatives available. Our reporting system makes this alternative fully transparent to keep your financial controller happy with the budget allocation.
Ideas and alternatives available:
- Full product subsidy: In this case all products are dispensed on FREE VEND, so employees can select the desired item and the machine will dispense it without limitations.
- Subsidy by product category: In this case you can select which items will have a subsidy, for example you can choose to have all soft drinks on FREE VEND, and allow users to pay for the snacks, or vice versa.
- Healthy items subsidy: In this case the company can subsidize items with certain nutritional criteria like protein bars, low calorie drinks, sugar free drinks etc.
- Subsidy by percentage: In this case the company can decide to subsidize a percentage of the cost of the items like 50% and the other 50% must be paid by the user.
- Management cards: We can create virtual cards with credit rechargeable for management in which we allow credit to be used on the machine and invoice back at the end of the month for the usage to the company.
In all options, a monthly report will be generated and given to the client along with an invoice including the items subsidized.
