Vendit upgrades vending machines to accept new $5 note

The new Australian $5 note was released on 1 September 2016 and is now in full circulation.  As part of our proactive approach, each of our vending machines throughout Brisbane has received the firmware upgrade needed to accept the new note.

The RBA now plan to roll out new bank notes of every denomination, continuing next year with the $10 note and each successive year until all notes are replaced.

Some of the features on the new notes are mind-blowing and we’ve added a short video for your info 🙂

Shockingly, it’s been brought to our attention that many of our competitors have such old payment systems that they can’t upgrade to the new firmware.  Time to give Vendit a call maybe?!
