FAQ
Purchasing a franchise
I want to install the photo kiosk. How can I contact you?
Fill out the application on the website, and we will contact you to discuss cooperation conditions.
Where can the photo kiosk be installed? What are the main requirements?
• Target locations: shopping centres, central city streets, recreational parks and other locations
• Less than one sq.m of leased area
• Stable Internet access (Wi-Fi, 4G modem or Ethernet cable)
Why should I choose you?
First, you will be able to profit from global trends. Photo printing industry continues to show a single digit yearly growth, while most people now store all their pictures on smartphones or social networks. Boft provides an easy way to print high-quality pocket-sized prints on the go — no waiting, no app or interaction with a sales' person required.

Second, unlike most vending franchises Boft requires a minimal time investment. On average, our franchisees do not spend more than 4 hours a month on its operations. It's possible because of:

  1. There is only one consumable - paper, which has to be refilled only once a month.
  2. A high degree of remote administration - almost all maintenance is done by our tech support team remotely.
  3. Little to no advertising required, as Boft serves as an ad for itself, attracting crowds with a large touchscreen and unique design.
Is it difficult to connect and set up a kiosk?
Our photo kiosks don't require any complicated installation or configuration; everything is already set up to work. All you need to do is to log in and connect the machine to the Internet - the rest will be done by our technical support. Servicing the kiosk does not require any special technical knowledge either.
How long does it take to manufacture a kiosk?
Boft kiosk manufacture usually takes 6 weeks.
What are the language options? Can you set a language of my country?
We can set up to three languages at your choice.
Will Boft kiosk accept my local currency?
Kiosk arrives to you fully country-adapted. It will accept coins and notes of your local currency. We can install a hopper for giving change as well, if necessary
Franchise conditions
Do I receive a discount if I purchase several photo kiosks?
Yes, you do. Starting from the second kiosk the progressive discount is available (only applies to 7.9% license fee option).
Who pays for the delivery of the kiosk?
The buyer pays for it. We will help to arrange the delivery through our partner logistics company. It provides both marine and air freight services.
Can I acquire exclusive rights in my region?
Yes, it is possible. An exclusive partner is expected to purchase the specific amount of kiosks that covers the main locations of his or her territory of exclusivity within 2-3 years. We will discuss your personal exclusivity terms with you to determine which terms would suit best your pace of development of Boft in your location.
Who sets prices?
Prices are set by a partner. We can only recommend how to draw up a price list comfortable and convenient for your customers
Daily operations
What does maintenance include?
The maintenance includes 2 main actions: collecting cash (twice a month) and changing paper (twice a month). Also, it is always a good idea to clean the kiosk weekly with a piece of cloth.
Do you help with promotion?
Yes. We provide advertising materials to our partners and share best practices on the development of the project through promotions and competitions.
How do I monitor my photo kiosk's operations?
Orders, revenue, and consumables stock data are updated in real time and available to you through the admin panel. Furthermore, our system will automatically send you notifications of any important changes. You can also address any question to your personal technical chat with our tech support team.
What consumables/materials do you use?
In short, we use special paper. Boft kiosk uses a dye-sublimation printer as it allows having much better quality than an inkjet printer. Additionally, there is no separate ink and paper, so you have to monitor only one consumable.
How many photos can the kiosk print before the refill is required?
It can print 1400 photos, which translates into around 2-3 weeks of operations.
How do we get supplies/consumables?
We provide you with paper at your requests. We sell it at a market price and always have paper in stock.
Does Boft kiosk support credit cards?
Yes, it does. We are working with Nayax. As long there is a Nayax office in your country, you will be able to easily install cashless payment module with our step-by-step remote assistance.
Warranty
What if I face an issue with my equipment?
If there is an issue with any part of the equipment, our technical support will immediately notify the owner and provide guidelines on how to fix it. In case the equipment is unrepairable, we will either arrange a visit of local independent repairment specialist remotely or promptly send a replacement (free of charge during the one-year warranty period).
What if I face any issue after the 1-year warranty period?
We will do the same as within the warranty period, but you will have to pay for the spare parts or the independent specialist visit.
