*Does not include a Credit Card reader, credit card capable only means the electronics in the machine is new enough to accept a credit card reader. Credit card readers are available through companies such as USA Technologies. Please contact them directly for pricing of equipment and services.
At one time if a vending machine was setup for MDB protocols it would work with almost every credit card reader on the market. In today's world there are many different types of credit card readers. Some are what we call backwards compatible, meaning they will work with older MDB protocols and some are not.
Compatibility issues: If our listed machine says MDB it means that the machine should work with many types of credit card readers. This statement is not a guaranty from us that these MDB machines will work with all credit card readers on the market today and for future models going forward. The best advice we can give is that you contact the company directly that you are buying the credit card readers from, give them the make and model of the machine you plan to buy prior to buying the machine. This will ensure that your reader will work with the machine listed as credit card compatible. If you fail to check with the maker of your credit card reader and the machine you buy does not accept credits you would then have to check with the manufacturer of the machine to see if there is a software update available for that machine. Not all machines listed as credit card capable have DEX (protocol) compatibility and that is needed if you plan to add book keeping functions. See below for details.
BOOK KEEPING AND VENDING MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS DEX (PROTOCOLS)
Many MDB machines will accept credit card readers but not all MDB machines have DEX (protocol) compatibility. This is required if you plan to use a vending management system as a stand alone or one of the many built into credit card readers today. Look on the description of the machine you plan to buy and make sure it says DEX (protocol) compatible in the description or it will not work with vending management systems. Once again, vending management systems have changed protocols over the years just like credit card readers, so we once again advise that you give the company you are buying this system from the make and model of the machine prior to purchasing it to ensure compatibility
Remember please check with the credit card reader company or PayRange before buying any machine from our site, due to the various types of readers and updated protocols Vending World does not guaranty any machine to use a credit card reader

Why Vending World?
Why Buy A Refurbished Machine?
Great Returns - Commercial Grade Machines - Affordability
New vs Refurbished
We used to sell new machines as well as reconditioned. We no longer sell new for the following reason: According to a recent survey of vending operators about 93 out of 100 potential vending accounts do not make enough revenue to warrant the cost of new equipment. New machines are great if you have high volume accounts, but most people do not have these accounts. Typical cost on new 'commercial grade' machines run as much as: Can drink $3400-$4800, Snack $3600-$4500, Cold food $7200-$8500, as you can see quite high compared to used or refurbished. Priced with mech and validator, typical options, vendor pricing, not including sales tax or shipping in some cases. Please remember 'anyone and everyone' can call their machines refurbished but what does that really mean? Please see our machine ratings page for what we actually do to our machines. Many of our competitors don't even 'clean or paint the inside' of the machines.Start small and grow as you can afford it.
Many people start in the vending business without much knowledge. This can hurt you financially if you are not careful. All of the machines that we sell are full size, commercial machines. There are many machines that are made that are small, countertop or mechanical coin acceptance. These machines are fine if you are a housewife looking to make a little extra money on the side. We used to sell those type of machines and no longer do. The main reason is that people who were serious about vending would out grow these type of machines in several months. There are two main problems with the small mechanical machines. One problem is the machine does not make change or take dollar bills. The second problem is that the machine will 'work you to death'. Most of these machines hold under 100 products and can only gross $40 to $50 at a time, if the entire machine empties out. This is only the gross, the profit is less than 1/2 of that amount. A full size commercial machine on the other hand usually holds 350 to 600 products and empties out at $250 to $500. Remember you spend the most time driving to the location so you might as well fill 500 products as soon as 50.
