Pagita enables mobile commerce for automatic vending machines. We believe unattended shopping today needs a digital transformation, and we provide the tools to power it.
We retrofit existing vending machines with our board which communicates to our mobile commerce system via 3G network. This way we enable - on the one side - the user to complete a purchase through their smartphone, and on the other the vending operator to have an interactive dashboard on their sales and continuous interaction with their customers thru geo-localized marketing messages. Pagita can analyze users' consumption and create profiles to be used for marketing campaigns and predictive strategy on stock assortment.
We provide all the technology stack (HW, SW, connectivity) as a service to the vending operators, with a monthly fee per vending machine. No money down nor investment is required for the operators that want to join the platform. Using the platform, the operators can reduce their cash management costs...

No money down nor investment is required for the operators that want to join the platform. Using the platform, the operators can reduce their cash management costs, avoid frauds linked to keyfobs payments systems, and reduce the incentive to burglarize the vending machine. Furthermore, we provide them a tool to optimize the logistic for stock supply, and a unique marketing tool to engage their customers also far from the vending machine itself.
Customers can deposit money into a digital wallet managed by Pagita in order to purchase, using credit card or other digital payment systems. The app also consent them to buy a coffee for their friend far away, and invite other people into the platform gaining a referral bonus.
