PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Canadian National Vending Alliance (CNVA), a coalition of the largest vending operators across Canada, announces that it has partnered with PayRange to bring mobile payment across 100% of its vending machines coast-to-coast.
The mobile payment capabilities at the core of the patented PayRange platform are allowing CNVA to bring cashless payment acceptance to their vending machines without the expense or complexity of installing card readers and network connections. The vending machine only needs the BluKey™ dongle which installs in seconds. Then using the free PayRange App which is available for iOS and Android, users make purchases. The App may be funded with credit and debit cards, and Apple Pay.
"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," said Steve Tremblay, President of the Canadian National Vending Alliance. "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."
PayRange was founded in 2013 by Paresh Patel to provide operators and consumers with the simplest, most accessible mobile payment solution for vending, amusement, laundry and more. Consumers download the free mobile app from either the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. And with flexible funding options including all major cards, Apple Pay, and Android Pay, consumers are empowered to pay machines with ease. PayRange-enabled machines can be found across the 50 United States and throughout Canada. Find out more at www.payrange.com.
