WASHINGTON, DC -- Vagabond has released vīv Checkout, its payments solution for micromarkets and other unattended retail environments. vīv Checkout allows consumers to easily view nutritional information and purchase their favorite items through the vīv app on their phone or tablet.

Consumers can choose from multiple payment options and only pay for what they purchase without having to rely on stored-value accounts. Tokenized transactions complete the process resulting in a payment method that Vagabond says is more secure than swipe or EMV credit card transactions.
vīv Markets do not require a separate payment kiosk or tablet. Operators simply install shelving, coolers and lighting to get them up and running. Since vīv Markets are completely cashless, operators remotely price all their products. They do not need to be concerned with cash accountability, and they can view current inventories of their products in live time in Vagabond's vending management system as sales occur.
The kiosk-less vīv payments solution is suitable for accounts previously deemed too small for traditional vending or traditional micromarkets by installing smaller "mini" micromarkets. Vagabond reports that operators are also using vīv to offer mobile payment solutions at honor box locations across the country.
