Irispay rolls out vending-machine store

Malaysian mobile wallet provider Irispay has rolled out its first e-Concept Store  in Kuala Lumpur.

In Subang Jaya, the 24-hour store runs without the need for staff, reports Vulcan Post.

Customers buy from a line of vending machines, each one dedicated to the country of product origin, such as China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and Malaysia. Products include instant ramen, fruit-flavoured drinks and even condoms.

There are three steps for customers, who use the Irispay mobile wallet app for access: choose a product, scan a QR code, authorise payment.

An Irispay spokesman says Subang was chosen for the first store because of its large number of students, the company’s target market.

Irispay says it hopes to expand to as many as 250 stores nationwide this year.
