Earlier, I introduced you to the method of opening a store with a vending machine, and the key step is to choose the right product. What kind of product is suitable for placing in the vending machine? First of all, we need to understand the revenue and cost of the entire vending machine business.
In terms of income, it can include income from the sale of goods, advertising income or other income. The main source of income is income from the sale of goods. Costs include depreciation of vending machines, rental income, cost of goods, logistics costs and software fees.
After understanding the revenue and cost structure, you will find that products with the following characteristics can increase the profitability of the vending machine.
First, products with higher unit prices and higher gross profit margins
Products with higher unit prices and higher gross profit margins (gross profit margin = (sale of goods-cost of goods) / cost of goods) can increase the profitability of a single piece of goods.
Due to the limited storage space of the vending machine, the number of products sold by the vending machine will be limited to the storage space without increasing logistics costs. Since the number of products sold is limited, the most direct way to increase the profitability of a vending machine is to increase the profitability of a single item. Of course, we cannot increase the price arbitrarily so that the product price is much higher than the market price, otherwise the sales volume will drop sharply. Therefore, we recommend that you sell products with higher market prices and higher gross profit margins.
Second, products with smaller sizes
In the previous paragraph, I also mentioned that the storage space of the vending machine is limited. Even if the cargo channel of the FOODOOR vending machine can be adjusted according to the size of the cargo, it will also reduce the amount of cargo that can be stored. Therefore, products with smaller sizes can maximize the use of vending machine space and increase sales. In addition, products with a smaller size can also reduce the space required to transport the goods and also reduce logistics costs.
Third, products with a longer storage period
In a good business environment, the product flow rate is fast, and the storage period is not a key factor. However, if the business environment deteriorates and the product flow rate decreases, the storage period will become a key factor. A longer storage period can reduce the loss of bad goods, and at the same time save the cost of the exchange flow, thereby reducing the cost of goods and logistics costs, thereby increasing the profitability of the vending machine.
