    Displaying USAT fee info ??

    I made my own stickers due to the confusion that says “The displayed price is the .10 per item DISCOUNTED cash price.” Some states actually forbid charging a convenience fee for cashless, but will allow a “cash discount” to be given instead. The rules in Texas were not that clear, so I opted to go with my own stickers.

    Minimum monthly revenue guarantee

    Now this is kind of what I was thinking as well. It goes back to, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. They are a large corporation here, and I’m just a one man operation. They have the money and name to tie up any lawsuit in court for years, and it would probaby break me. This gave me some new insight on the situation, and I am going to approach them about placing another machine temporarily as a test, if it does good I can purchase the other one, if it flops, I will pull the machine and continue on without worrying about a large purchase to cover. Thank you

    Minimum monthly revenue guarantee

    Yes I have, and they are on board with it. Just curious if anyone else has done any contracts like this.

    Minimum monthly revenue guarantee

    Machine would be placed in the 3 rd floor of the building. First 2 floors are apartments. I added a clause about vandalism basically saying they would be responsible for repairs if it was due to their or there employees negligence. I will be using USAT and a VMS so the meter reading won’t be an issue. I just basically want to insure I get enough of a return to pay for the machine and not be too far in the hole with this account if it is slow. i also added an early termination fee of $5000 if they decide to cancel the contract due to no fault of mine. Basically if I put the machine in and they decide to switch vendors because the other offers to pay a commission, then they can cancel as long as they pay the $5K. I can cancel with 60 days notice due to unprofitability.
  6. how many of you have contracts that have a minimum monthly revenue guarantee for you the operator? I have a customer that is requesting I provide a certain type of bottle machine that i would have to purchase. The machine is going into a High-end motel. The customer is willing to sign a long term contract (5 years), with no commission due to him. I am wanting to add a minimum monthly revenue guarantee to the contract to ensure i bring in enough to cover the expense of buying the machine. i would request this for the first 24 months of the contract and it would basically be, MMRG - gross sales = amount invoiced to customer. If the machines exceed the MMRG then they would not be invoiced anything for that month. This would be my first machine with this customer and they have agreed to adding to the contract that i would be given first choice of all new properties for the remainder of the contract, as well as 1 or 2 of their existing locations being turned over to me a year if i want them. If you have done this with any of your accounts, how has it worked out for you? How did you word it in the contract? Any help is appreciated.

    GPL 171 EPROM version

    So I installed the new eprom and the card reader and everything works fine, other than having to manually pull the dex file from the machine. You have to press the mode button till it shows cash on the display, then press the letter D and it will send the dex file. It will not send it automatically with the card reader or anything else. I also added a card reader to another machine and left the 170.01 eprom, when I go into the config menu it only has 2 options for the reader, off or dumb, mdb is not available as an option. I have ordered the new eprom to update the machine. I now have my answer, but wanted to update this thread for anyone else in the future.

    sega snacks

    They do put a lot of ads on Craigslist, however I have purchased a few machines from them over the last few years and haven’t had any problems.

    Triteq Bev IQ lock

    I’ve been waiting for over a year for my local Pepsi to come open 2 of my machines and reset them to my remote, so good luck getting anything done if you have to call Pepsi.

    Do some CC readers NOT have Apple pay?

    Had a lousy account, by lousy I mean less than $20 out of the bottle machine every 2 weeks. Took a chance and put a cc reader on and it went to $100 every 2 weeks. Just added a reader to the snack machine and it is now up to almost the same. Some accounts that you wouldn’t believe are worth the expense actually end up being totally worth it. I would try a reader on the account and simply go into the device settings page if using USAT and change the message so that it no longer displays “swipe or tap to begin”. Give it sometime and if it’s still not worth it, pull the machines and put the reader somewhere else.

    GPL 171 EPROM version

    I called USA Tech, and was told I needed the 160.11 or higher. However, the list didn’t actually show a 171. I ordered the 170.03 eprom just in case. Once I install I will update this post. Thanks again everyone
  14. I have 6 GPL 171 snack machines on locations that I am wanting to add credit card readers to. They are all MDB and need the dex cables added, once the cables arrive. They all currently have the 170.02 eprom in them, can anybody tell me if this is the correct eprom? Or do I need to swap to the 170.03 version?

    Thoughts on USAT acquiring Cantelope?

    From what I understand in the press release, USAT is acquiring cantaloupe
