Do you stand aimlessly at various types of payment machines rummaging for the exact change, only to then spend more time inserting individual coins one by one?
Yes. Us too! Annoying isn’t it… and not ideal if you’re in a rush. So what do you think about bulk entry? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could throw in all of your coins at once.
Bulk entry as it is known has been around for a while but is mainly seen at the self service checkout at the supermarket. Have you seen it, have you used it?
What is it? Well as its name suggests you enter coins in bulk, you can throw in a handful of coins and they will be accepted and checked. In a full recycling system if you overpay the required amount then the overpayment can be returned automatically.
The systems are fast and accurate but is bulk the future? Do you trust the technology?
