  1. Apparently not. Seem to be like cell phones. They have SIM cards for the company you get them from. I guess there could be some sort of work around, but in general practice that doesn't seem to be the case. Understandable if renting or leasing, but when purchasing outright it doesn't make sense.
  2. I have a couple of credit card readers/telemeters I bought from Parlevel. Does anyone know if I can use this equipment with a different company for cellular signal and card payments? For example, just call Greenlite or someone and get service through them with using the existing equipment I already have.
  3. No. It is iPayment. Regardless, I am quite disappointed.
  4. Parlevel Systems.
  5. Just signed up for a processor and bought my first two readers w/ telemetry. Due to circumstances beyond the control of the company I bought them from, I am without a merchant account to process transactions though I applied three weeks ago and got my readers a little over a week ago. As of right now they are $300 vending machine decorations. So, my questions are: Has anyone experienced such a delay in getting set up with a merchant account? What is the usual time frame for this to be completed? Has anyone used more than one processor for credit/debit card transactions?
  6. Okay, then refurbished it is. So it's a testament to how good of a job the company did on it. It's all subjective, but I can say I am completely happy with what I received.
  7. This machine seems quite nice in my opinion, though I am far from an expert. The model is Snackshop LCM3-640
  8. If the AP is not new, it would fool even the best. All spirals are obviously new. the racks appear to have never been used. The coin mech/validator appear new. The wiring looks new. The glass door is new. There was even a brand new manual in the bottom with new door hardware still taped to the bottom of the machine. Besides, the equipment came with 90 day warranty from Shermco along with lifetime phone support. As Shermco posted in this thread that there is another Shermco out west, I would not confuse the two. I believe I received two great machines from this company and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
  9. Okay, I know this thread is old. But, it's new to me and I feel I have to insert my two cents on this regarding Shermco. I just bought two machines from them. One was an AP 5-wide and the other was a Dixie Narco live display 501. I got a great price on both machines delivered and set up. They brought them down from 90 minutes away. I was purchasing refurbished, though I'm quite sure the AP is brand new. The drink machine was refurbished with a new compressor and front with the rest receiving a thorough cleaning. I feel I got a great deal from a good company. Just because someone advertises on Craigslist does not mean they are scam artists. As with anything, do your homework. By the way, I was never offered a combo or locating services. I'm not brand new to vending and did call for specific machines/type of machines. All in all, I would recommend this company.
  10. Has anyone tried to dispense the small 8.4 oz Red Bull cans in this machine? Want to sell the drink but the 12 oz. cans are quite pricey. Manual says can dispense 12-24oz though.
  11. Thanks a lot. Great info.
  12. I've looked and saw nothing, but you know how weird some of the laws can be.
  13. Can you vend snacks and sundries in same machine? I have a snack machine going into a small hotel that will carry mostly standard snack machine fare, but wish to offer a few traveler items such as Tylenol, razor, band aid, mouthwash, etc. I would place these items on the bottom row.

  15. Just starting out with one drink machine and one combo machine. Yes, I know, I hear the catcalls regarding the combo, but it's my decision. I am fortunate to be able to purchase these used from a local vending machine company and install them at a hotel where I work. I am looking forward to this venture and think I will learn a lot on this site.
