Expert advice for developing, deploying and managing self-service kiosks
Tag: Kiosk Bill Acceptor
Now that you’ve decided to dispense cash from your kiosk with a bill recycler I want to make you aware of the pitfalls to avoid. Dispensing cash can be invaluable for making change to your customers like a human cashier, but also introduces several new challenges which we’ll address in this article.
Most people familiar with bill acceptors think of a bill recycler as simply an add-on component which dispenses cash, but this is far from the case.
Dispensing bills greatly increases the complexity of the device and the logic required by your kiosk application in order to gracefully complete a cash transaction.
We’ve made it easy to start accepting cash and credit card payments from your self-service kiosk by using the KioskSimple kiosk SDK. Our kiosk SDK abstracts the complicated logic of several popular payment devices and greatly lowers the learning curve thereby saving you significant development costs.
Benefits of the KioskSimple kiosk SDK:
Speeds up development to save you time and money
Allows you to switch between supported payment devices with little to no code rework
Bill jams are commonplace when your kiosk accepts cash payments. No matter how advanced the bill acceptor, there’s always that guy that inserts a bill covered in mud, or something worse, and gums up the device.
