GS Retail cited the expansion of non-face-to-face transactions, the increasing preference for safe assets, and the increase in small investment trends as reasons for its decision to introduce gold bar vending machines.

After a trial that is expected to run until August next year, the company will review the idea of expanding gold bar vending machines based on sales records.
