Looking for some honest feedback from rideshare drivers. We make in-car vending machines - our vending machines are completely self-service so you don't have to hand products to passengers. Passengers scan a QR code, select the items they want in our app, the sections with the items open up and the customer is charged for products the select. We were wondering which business model will appeal to rideshare drivers and will appreciate your feedback. We also understand that not all Uber/Lyft drivers like to sell products in their car and that is totally fine - we are seeking feedback from those that are interested in making extra income while driving. You load the vending machine with products and continue with driving.
1. Would you prefer to buy (or finance) the vending machine and sell whatever product you like? In this case, we only take 6% commission for providing you a bunch of tools (payment tools, anti-theft tools, analytics tools, age verification tools, mobile apps/web interfaces for your products and more). You can sell anything as long as you have the appropriate licenses. For example, you can sell CDB products in Colorado, California etc.
2. Would you prefer to get the vending machine for free and only sell the products we send you? In this case, we take 80% commission and you get 20% commission.
3. Would you prefer to pay a monthly fee for the vending machine ($35) and sell your own items? In this case, we only take 6% commission.
Basically, if you get the vending machine for free, you can only sell the products we send you and you get 20% of the revenue. If you buy, finance or pay a monthly fee, we only take 6% commission and you can sell anything you like.
