"With the skyrocketing demand for retail kiosks, manufacturers and systems integrators need information on how to integrate cash-accepting technology into these systems to accommodate the 40% of the population who don't have credit cards," said Steve Owens, President of MEI. "Today, more than twice as many purchases are made with cash than with credit cards and electronic payments combined, and cash is predicted to remain a major form of payment. This guide gives OEMs the information they need to stay on top of the industry."
