Over the past decade, vaping has firmly established itself as a less harmful alternative to cigarette smoking. Around 9% of the UK’s adult population vape regularly with this number increasing steadily year-on-year.

The advent of disposable vaping devices has changed the vaping industry massively by offering a high-end vaping experience in a format that does not the require the service element traditionally offered by dedicated vape shops.

Vape Bot vending machines offer a legally compliant means of selling such age-restricted products in unattended retail environments.

If you are considering the concept of vape vending either as a standalone project or as an addition to your company’s existing offering, Vape Bot offers a tried and tested solution specifically designed for disposable vaping products. As a dealer, you will have access to our range of vending machines and the tools needed to operate and maintain them.

The cost per unit depends upon the number of units purchased. To find out more, please complete our enquiry form and a member of our team will be in touch to discuss your requirements.

We are not a finance company and do not offer our machines on any kind of installment basis. There are however many equipment finance companies that you can approach to fund your acquisitions, but you will need to make your own enquiries.

We do not currently offer any installation or maintenance plans for dealers. We expect dealers to have the in-house capabilities to both install and maintain their own estate of machines.

Our remote management tool allows you to monitor the machines within your fleet. By logging on, you will be able to see sales data, machine status, inventory levels as well as being able to remotely make changes to product ranges and advertising.

Within reason, you can stock whatever products you wish to within your machines. There are some reasonable limitations as to size, but Vape Bot vending machines are designed to be adjustable to suit different product configurations.

The only limitation we place on our dealers is a minimum price which is subject to change with market conditions.

Vape Bot offers a cashless-system only. Our standard machine design only accommodates contactless payments. Upon their first order for machines, every dealer must create an account with our merchant processor after which, payments taken through their machines will automatically be credited to their bank account.

There is a small annual fee for the management portal which you will use to maintain your fleet of machines. There is also a transactional charge for each age-verification session, which covers the cost of the age-verification service. Other than this, we charge no other recurring fees to our dealers.

We keep a good stock of all the spare parts for our range of vending machines. As a dealer, you will be able to purchase parts on an as-needed basis from our UK stock holding.
