"We make credit card readers for vending machines"
Forward Pay is the company that first proved that unattended cashless payment for sales of a few dollars each could be feasible.
We installed our first unattended credit card reader system at the Minneapolis / St. Paul airport in 1992.
What we do
We help vending equipment manufacturers design flexible and secure cashless payment systems into their equipment.
Since 1992 Forward Pay has delivered nearly 10,000 unattended cashless pay points worldwide.
If you have rented a luggage cart, stroller, or locker at an airport or shopping mall and paid with a credit card you have most likely used our payment system.
