Are you tired of the traditional parking hassles? Discover a new era of convenience with Vend – the parking solution that's changing the game. Let's take you through the seamless journey of parking at a Vend location for the first time, where innovation meets ease.

  1. Pull up to the Gate

Your Vend experience begins as you approach the entrance gate where our state-of-the-art digital kiosk welcomes you. If it's your maiden voyage at a Vend location, the kiosk will prompt you to enter your phone number.

Behind the scenes, Vend's license plate recognition technology (LPR) is already at work. While you input your phone number, the system effortlessly reads your license plate, linking it to your account. The gate responds promptly, lifting without the need for a paper ticket. Your account is now created, and you're free to enter the parking facility – no fuss, no muss!

  1. Receive a Text Message with Account Details

Shortly after your arrival, expect a friendly text message from Vend, containing a link to your personalized account and parking session. Unlike many other digital parking systems – Vend's web-based app eliminates the need for downloads, making your parking experience hassle-free.

Simply click on the link, and you're in control. Check your current parking fee, explore features like the fare estimator, and plan your departure time effortlessly. Vend puts the power in your hands, ensuring you have all the information you need, right at your fingertips.

  1. Add Payment Information

Time is precious, and Vend values yours. Using the same link, add your payment information to your Vend account. This one-time process ensures that your payment details are securely stored for future visits, making entry and exit a breeze. Vend integrates with common payment tools such as Google and Apple Wallet making adding your payment information even easier.

  1. Just Drive Out

As you approach the exit gate, the final act unfolds seamlessly. If you've added your payment information, the gate automatically lifts with a simple drive-out. Did you forget to add payment information? No worries. Vend's digital kiosk at the exit makes adding your credit card on the spot easy. Need assistance? Our 24/7 support team is just a button away.

It’s nice to see you again. For returning or registering monthly parkers, now that your account is set up, it’s even easier. Simply drive in, let Vend's license plate recognition do the work, and drive out without missing a beat. Your account will contain a history of your parking sessions and payment receipts. 

What’s easier than that?
