    Ran virus software on the site and we are coronavirus free. Then we proceeded to surround the website with piles of toilet paper, because apparently the virus cannot pass through toilet paper. At least I assume that's why everyone bought tons of toilet paper.

    You sometimes have to use the tube fill feature or simply buy a bunch of things with nickels. This lets the machine know that it has sufficient change to payout. Sometimes just shoving coin into the tubes won’t let the machine know.

    I think you're absolutely right about that. I've decided to wear a surgical mask and gloves to all locations. I'm not willing to get sick. I'm getting some crazy looks, but it worth it to me. In a couple of weeks I think we'll see just how bad this virus is.

    Absolutely agree and we have the same concerns. Bulk vending hasn't been the same since 2008 and this will no doubt hurt us much worse...likely forcing many businesses to close up. It's going to be a very interesting couple months. Bulk vending right now is a fragile industry. Hopefully we can ride this out. Good luck to all of you.

    I located 12 machines about 2 weeks ago. Prior to going out I was prepared for an unreasonably tough day locating but was pleasantly surprised how easy we placed the equipment. Unfortunately things have changed alot in 2 weeks. I had planned to do some locating yesterday but put that off. I also told my route guy that we are not going out next week primarily to protect our customers as well as he and I. I am also concerned about locations being randomly closed due to the virus. Not a good thing when you drive 2-3 hours to run a route and find out that multiple locations are closed. I have the same worries as you when it comes to people showing us the door over this situation. I lost one long term business office location last week and while they gave the reason that they were "changing the office around" I suspect it was a panic decision. There are always a fair amount of locations that seem to "begrudgingly" let us keep our machines there and this could be a catalyst to show us the door. Bottom line we are generally not seen as a necessity and we are easy get rid of. Overall I am concerned about the long term effects of this virus on our already slowing business model. If this thing lasts for a long time, comes back seasonally or becomes extremely virulent then we could be facing some real challenges going forward. I discussed the situation with 2 of my local competitors (good relationships with both of them) and they have the same fears. My plan is to see how things go in the world during the next week and just reassess every week. Whenever it looks like it's easing up and safe to roll then we will be hitting the streets. This thing is going to be an economic catastrophe for alot of businesses and we will not be exempt. I have no doubt this will crush bulk sales over the next 3-6 months if not longer. I hope I'm wrong.

    I don’t get the toilet paper thing. I guess people are planning on not leaving the house for 6 months?

    A guy goes into the US postal service to apply for a job. The interviewer asks him, "Are you allergic to anything?" He replies, "Yes, caffeine. I can't drink coffee." "OK, have you ever been in the military service?" "Yes," he says, "I was in Afghanistan for one tour." The interviewer says, "that will give you 5 extra points toward employment." Then he asks, "Are you disabled in any way?" The guy says, "yes. A bomb exploded near me and I lost both my testicles." The interviewer grimaces and then says, "disabled in your country's service! Well that qualifies for extra bonus points. Okay. Looking at the regulations you have got enough points for me to hire you right now. Our normal hours are from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. You can start tomorrow at 10:00 am, and plan on starting at 10:00 AM every day." The guy is puzzled and asks, "if the work hours are from 8:00AM to 4:00 PM , why don't you want me here until 10:00 AM ?" "This is a government job , " the interviewer says. "For the first two hours, we just stand around drinking coffee and scratching our balls. No point in you coming in for that."

    Hello everyone. About a year ago, I started recording myself doing repairs to our vending machines so that I could post them on YouTube and help new vendors learn the same things I had to learn when I started vending back in 2016. I call the channel Happy Vending: https://www.youtube.com/c/HappyVending I've learned a lot from this forum and I would love to see some of the more experienced vendors make similar videos...LACanteen, AZVendor. With George and Randy's personalities, I bet the videos would be hit! If you get a chance, stop by my page and subscribe. If I get 1000 subscribers, I can actually start making some money from YouTube! I have dozens of ideas for new videos, and as I find time I record and upload them. Thanks....and happy vending!

    What model A/P is this? If it's an SL Studio it needs the latest firmware.

    Unfortunately that narrows it down to a bad validator. In addition, I don't think most of us here can help you. Not only are most of us US based, and as such primarily use MEI, Coinco, and a few Conlux, but very few of us do our own validator repairs. Typically, when one breaks, it gets sent off for a rebuild. I'd say try looking for a manual and clean the lenses. But beyond that you are probably on your own. Sorry.

    The productmap is sorted by PA code as default, that's the machines internal shelf number. The map updates each selection as MDB code when you connect it to a machine and perform a purchase. The hard way to sort out your product map is erasing the one you have, and start by buying a product on the top shelf to the left, and call it PA-number 1, then proceed to the right and sort it 1, 2, 3, 4 etc.. Then next shelf call it 10, 11, 12 and so on.. But I'm sure you can import a standard blank map for these machines if you contact your Nayax-supplier.

    I have 2 nursing homes both will not let me service my machines I tried to go Thur the back door at one of the nursing homes a very mean lady caught me and chewed me out all the way out the door. I have one truck line and a tire distribution center blocked me from coming in overall sales are slowing down. The good part is gas prices are less 2 dollars a gallon and the weather is turning warm this is when my business really gets going but the biggest thing is I like having a little more time home with my wife but if I have to watch one more crime show I am going to start back drinking and I don’t mean RC colas.

    I've put all servicing on hold indefinitely. This is a truly surreal situation that now has no definitive end in sight. We will just have to do our best to pick up the pieces after this thing runs it's course. Right now staying healthy and helping others when we can is the name of the game.

    This whole thing could last for awhile and products will expire. Keep that in mind when ordering products with shorter shelf life.

    Revision door not worth the money and effort if your original door is in good condition. Update your look with a Tuffront kit. Upgrade the board with VE board or In-One board.

    Why don't lotteries sell scratch-off tickets for $ .99 and give us back a penny to scratch the ticket?
