We will pay you for the privilege of having our machine at your workplace! This setup falls under our premium-service promise… we promise to provide you with the highest commission we can possibly offer! Each site is different and we understand you have unique needs from a vending service. Some sites heavily rely on commission to fund social club events, christmas parties etc, while other sites want the best prices possible with no commission payable.
Most generous commission possible
Our commissions are competitive because of our buying power, large product range, the fact that machines are always stocked and because of the machine reliability. Many of our sites use their quarterly commission to fund employee barbecues and social events, which is beneficial for workplace morale. Earning you the maximum commission possible is our way of saying thank you for supporting our business.
Earning your maximum vending machine commission relies heavily on our remote tracking technology. This technology allows us to closely monitor your site’s needs and buying trends. Therefore we customise the machine to your site’s unique needs – maximising sales and therefore maximising your workplace commissions!
We have had many people ask us about the leading softdrink manufacturer – and if we are able to match their commission. The answer is – yes! We can usually not only match their commissions and their prices, but also sell all the products that they cannot. Therefore we are not limited to particular brands. For example – our range of energy drinks is not limited to Mother – we also sell Redbull, V, Monster and Rockstar.
Generally we pay commissions quarterly and provide a supporting tax invoice. We can alter commission rates and structures to suit your needs. For example some items can attract commission while others are commission free.
How do you know you are receiving the correct commission? We can show you the non-resettable data on the machine and our online tracking system. We can also supply a username and login details for you to monitor performance of your site online.

Who owns the vending machine in our workplace? Do we hire them?
Robinson’s Vending owns the vending machine/s we place in your workplace. You do not hire the machines from us, because we are responsible for all servicing, cleaning and filling of the vending machine/s. We are fully insured for product and public liability.
What do we need to do once the machine is installed in our workplace?
Enjoy it! Honestly, you do not need to do anything. We will work around your operating hours and will fill the workplace vending machine usually weekly during a time frame that suits you.
How much commission can we earn?
This is a big question! We are ever-grateful for your business and our commissions are generous. It can add up to quite a large sum. It is usually paid quarterly into your nominated bank account. Commissions vary enormously from one site to the next and they depend largely on the site turnover and the prices of the individual products in the machines. However, we find that our machines generally turnover more product than our competitor’s machines – meaning more commission for you – this is because we know how to maximise sales and profits to earn you the largest commission possible!
Will we have lots of different people coming into our workplace to fill/service the machine?
No! That’s the beauty of Robinson’s Vending. You will have the same person filling your machine each week – with a rare exception.
If Robinson’s Vending is a small business, doesn’t that mean the prices of the product won’t be as competitive?
Not at all. Our prices are often lower than those in our competitor’s machines. We want to keep our customers happy and keeping our products priced well is one way we do this. Although we are considered a small business, we buy in large quantities, therefore securing an excellent price. We are large enough to provide excellent turnover of products while small enough to maintain great customer service.
How often do you need to fill/service the machine?
Usually we refill snack vending machines and drink vending machines weekly. However depending on how busy your site is, it could be slightly more or less often. All our machines are connected using a remote monitoring system, so we always know when they need refilling.
What happens if there is a problem?
Easy. Please contact us by phoning, texting or emailing (all our vending machines have our phone number and email clearly displayed). We will come out to the site as quickly as possible – usually the same day, and we will fix the problem.
What is the process for getting a machine installed in our workplace?
Please start by contacting us – call, email or even text and we’ll call you back! We will have a quick chat to discuss the needs of your employees/customers, followed by a visit from our rep to view the site. Soon after we will deliver the machine, set it up and you’ll have a fully-operating vending machine(s) in your work place!
Are we locked into a contract with Robinson’s Vending?
For the majority of the time, no, we do not lock you into a contract. We are so confident in our service we are certain you will be kept happy, therefore you are welcome to discontinue the service at any time. For some particular sites where multiple machines are required, we may ask that you sign a 24-month contract after a 3-month trial period.
What sets Robinson’s Vending apart from the competitors?
Robinson’s Vending is an independently-owned vending business. This means we can supply products from all different brands (such as Coca Cola, Pepsi, Smiths chips, Kettle chips, Schweppes, Cadbury, Nestle etc). Other large vending operators that offer vending solutions are limited to their own brands.
As we are a small vending machine business you have the same person filling your vending machine each time (particularly important for high-security areas or for areas where an induction or visitors pass needs to be obtained before entering the site).
We offer generous commissions on sales.
