Sept. 15, 2015

San Francisco, CA – September 15, 2015 – Cantaloupe Systems, the vending industry’s premier provider of cloud-based, mobile technologies that deliver an integrated end-to-end vending solution, today announced that Android Pay is accepted on all machines running Seed Cashless, the fastest growing card and mobile payments solution for vending. Android Pay, based on Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology, is the new contactless payment capability unveiled by Google in May and now available for Android users to seamlessly tap and pay with their phones in more than one million locations in the US, with more being added every day. Accepting Android Pay requires no hardware upgrade and no additional cost to vending operators utilizing Seed Cashless. 

To use Android Pay, simply unlock your phone and tap. In addition to Android Pay, Cantaloupe’s Seed Cashless also accepts traditional credit card payments including Visa Debit and Credit, MasterCard Debit and Credit, American Express and Discover as well as mobile payment options including Apple Pay, Visa Checkout and MasterCard Contactless. 

“Seed Cashless was born ready for mobile payments. We’ve always included Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology in every card reader because we predicted that the payments industry would eventually coalesce on NFC and we didn’t want our customers to get stuck with swipe-only hardware that would soon become obsolete. Cantaloupe is committed to supporting as many forms of cashless payment as possible,” said Anant Agrawal, CRO and President, Cantaloupe Systems.
