Advantages of unmanned commerce in rural areas

Unmanned trading, also called automated trading or machine trading, means that there is no human interaction in the buying or selling process. Instead, machines, such as vending machines, are used to allow customers to purchase products in a self-service manner.

Unmanned trading can have a number of advantages, especially in rural areas where it can be difficult to find staff to run a trade. Then it is advantageous to set up an unmanned store or hybrid shop. Some of these benefits may be:

  • Lower staff costs: As no human interaction is required, unmanned retail can be a more cost-effective solution than a traditional shop with staff.
  • Increased accessibility factor: Unmanned trade can be open 24/7, which can be helpful for customers living in rural areas who may not be able to shop during traditional opening hours.
  • Reduced risk of crime: As unmanned commerce requires no human interaction, it reduces the risk of robbery and other crimes.
  • Opportunity to offer a greater range of products: By using unmanned commerce, one can offer a greater amount of products than would be possible with a manned store.
  • Ability to reach a wider customer base: Unmanned retail can be a good way to reach a wider customer base, including people who live in rural areas but do not have the opportunity to shop during traditional opening hours.
