PayRange, the world’s simplest payment solution for vending, announced that it has signed a strategic distribution agreement with Vistar. As part of the agreement, Vistar’s nationwide staff will focus on the representation and sales of the PayRange technology. “We see this as an incredible partnership,” Paresh Patel, CEO and Founder of PayRange, told VendingMarketWatch. “Vistar has a vested interest in the vending industry, as nearly all operators buy from the company, and now Vistar can help operators increase their sales by accepting mobile payment on the machines.”
PayRange developed a small Bluetooth dongle that plugs into existing machines in seconds and a mobile app to send payment. PayRange’s technology re-imagines machine payments in the mobile age transforming it into a super convenient experience when paying parking meters, luggage carts, transit ticketing, laundromats, amusement games, kiosks, and more.
Vending operators will have the opportunity to work with Vistar sales representatives to include PayRange technology in their weekly or monthly orders. There will be no additional shipping cost for operators adding the PayRange technology to their Vistar orders and prices will remain at $49 each.
PayRange was founded by Paresh Patel, an unattended retail veteran, to provide operators and consumers with a simple and secure mobile payment and loyalty solution for laundry, vending, amusement, and other small ticket merchants. PayRange is the North American leader in mobile payments for unattended retail, with over 3 million users and a network of machines throughout 350 cities and towns in the US and Canada.
