iLoad – Load Vendo Machine

by Ka Edong on June 29, 2006

There’s a vendo machine at the Shaw Blvd MRT station that allows users to load any pre-paid cellphone.

They call the vending machine “iLoad”. It’s has a touch screen, full-color monitor. It has a slot to accept paper bills and coins, similar to the vendo coke machines. I’m not sure if it dispenses change, but it probably does.

I tried out the vending machine, and it’s rather intuitive. You select the type of cellphone load you need (Smart, Globe, Sun), select the amount, enter the cellphone number of the recipient.

After entering the cellphone number, there’s a little delay. I initially got the impression the system verifies whether the cellphone number exists or whether it matches the prepaid card chosen. But after entering a couple of random cellphone numbers, I’m rather convinced that there’s no verification involved at this stage.

After getting the cellphone load info, the machine asks for your money. I don’t own a pre-paid cellphone. So I never really tried entering any money. But the paper bill slot is very similar to those in softdrink vendo machines.

What can we do with these vendo machines? How can they be improved?

First thing that comes to mind: these machines could be extended to load G-Cash or Smart Money. This gives m-commerce an additional way of bringing in m-cuurency into the mobile commerce network.

There is maintenance involved for these machines. Somebody needs to retrieve the cash in these machines every so often.

Nice gadget to have. I’m sure it can make the revenues needed to keep it running. But nothing spectacular yet. Let’s see how this vendo machine will evolve. I’m looking forward to this vendo machine catering to many more pre-paid products in the future.

  • that was exactly the concept of my first thesis proposal few years back… A touch screen, computer connects to a server that has a database of pin numbers (hindi pa ata uso autoload nun), and prints the e-pins on paper, etc.

    our professor rejected it…

    “mahal touchscreen… mahal sensor to accept paper bills… kaya nyo bang i-program yan sa visual?? eh comp eng’g kayo.. mahal program license ng visual… kaya nyo ba tapusin in 6 months? yada yada yada pweh!”

    So my friend and I ended up with a cheap mpu-based portable massage vest. hahahaha!

    This is iloadmachines, can we send you updated pictures of the screen shots you took so it can replace the old screens?So when we are asked questions we can share the correct photos. Would that be ok with you?


  • Hi Don.

    Let’s do it this way.

    Go ahead and make a hyperlink from the comments section of technobiography pointing to the new photos.

    I don’t see any reason to take down historical photos.

    we made a vendo machine like this.. we named it Electronic loading vendo machine.. that is for our design project.. mgnda nman cia.. we spend almost 50K for that project.. hay.. kso knkabahan ako sa defense nmin this coming march 28,08..
    we tried nman ung iload sa my shopwise sa cubao.. oo touchscreen cia pero hndi cia ngbabarya.. so you need to insert an exact amout pra mkapagpaload.. my cancel button sa program but hndi cia ngcacancel.. instead, hndi nya ibabalik ung pera mo if u will cancel it.. super sensitive ung sensor sa bill acceptor which is one of its disadvantage.. touchscreen lng cia..
    ung gnwa nmin, ngcchange at hndi ganu ksensitive.. un nga lng it cant detect if the bill u will insert is athenticated or not.. kc mahal ung sensor n kayang mgsimulate.. it costs 99K.. student plang kmi kya un lng nkayanan nmin.. hehe… ok nman project nmin.. we use wimax for our access in loading 3 different network.. sun, smart and globe..thnx wimax..!! nwey.. hndi lng ang grupo nmin ang gmawa nun,, i mean my consultant kmi kc hndi nman kmi pmilyar sa mga pyesang ggmitin eh.. kung cnu man my mga project n gnto, try to search PCUM.. i dnt have its cntact # eh..un lng po..

    Hi everybody,

    Just surfing the web and surprised to see this article. I am the one who designed, developed and built this machine (iLoad) from its software, hardware, and down to the physical enclosure. The iLoad was actually the second machine of it’s kind. The first was made by my company, Intellimedia, for Smart about five years ago. It was deployed in a couple of it’s telco centers and only dispensed PINs since there was no eloading at the time. The iLoad was was a shift from PINs to over the air loading. Too bad that my “partner” (see above) decided that he would have a go at it on his own and tried to use my copyrighted software (infringement case ready to be filed). He hired a programmer to try and reverse engineer the software but probably just decided to change the screens (but still used parts my original screens) and rebranded the machine as “uLoad” (with a smiley u). Sheesh, he even claimed to have invented it. Anyway, I have gone and improved the system some more with most of the enhancements happening behind the scenes to improve the reliability and operability of the machine. The enclosure has also been slimmed down (which “partner” above copied by going to my fabricator). If anybody has questions for academic purposes, let me know. You can email me at And Jet, that iLoad machine you saw in Cubao, can you give me a description of the machine?

  • this was exactly what i am thinking of having. i dont know anyone who can help me have and construct this. Is there anyone who wants to construct it for me and i’ll take care of the expenses.

    I understand that there is no available means communicating with iload.

    hindi ko na po kasi mababasa ang ibang comments dahil very limited lang ang time namin…


    oh sorry! i misunderstood the project… ang samin po kasi, parang vendo coke machine sya..kaso sa halip na coin nga yung gagamitin, we make it a card…which function like a load card… may load yung card and then yun yung gagamitin mo para makapagdispense… bawat bili mo ng product nababawasan yung load mo..obviously may balance inquiry sya! Microelectronics ang balak naming gamitin… can you help us.. patulong naman kami sa mechanical part…thanks!

    There are 2 was to build this prepaid loading machine, 1) is using a simple pc with cellphone to send the customer data, the cellphone number and load to the network provider; or 2) a pc with internet connection and sending the data to an online prepaid loading gateway. I think its very doable with VB. Im not sure about the money scanner though. you will have to accept coins and paper money.




    hi. patulong naman po sa thesis, same concept kaso vendo carger lang po sya by using fingerprint security, if may idea po kau about dat, i will be a great help po smen. salamat..

  • You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

  • Between me and my husband we have owned more MP3 players through the many years than I can depend, which includes Sansas, iRivers, iPods (traditional & effect), the Ibiza Rhapsody, and so on. But, the final number of many years I’ve settled lower to one particular line of players. Why? Since I used to be content to find out how very well-made and pleasurable to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
