Redbox DVD Kiosk Requirements

Welcome to the website that’s all about how to own a Redbox kiosk machine.

It’s not a franchise, but there is an application process that business owners can undertake to try and get a Redbox machine at their place of business.

Find out how to apply for a Redbox machine here…

 

What are the requirements for business owners applying for a Redbox DVD kiosk at their location?

Redbox requires that interested business owners supply them with the following information as a first step in the application process:

Name:
Email:
State:
ZipCode:
Location Type:
Average daily traffic (transactions):
Location Description:

“If you have any additional questions, comments regarding this issue please contact us at 866-redbox3 (866-733-2693) to avoid any further delay in resolving your matter,” says Redbox, who sent me the email from questions@redbox.com after I chatted online with redbox Customer Care via Redbox.com.

However, that doesn’t give us much detail about what their minimum requirements are for getting a Redbox machine.

Reader feedback about getting a Redbox kiosk machine…

Not sure if this comment came from an actual Redbox machine business renter, but here is what one person wrote to me about the process requirements:

“Hello Interested investors…

RedBox is a company that will pay you a commission based monthly income. Contrary to some beliefs RedBox is not a franchise style business. As a owner of a business you must have some prereqs before considering to apply for a storefront RedBox unit.

Some of the needs you must have: 50,000 worth in foot traffic (that’s daily traffic…), visibility, a prime location to place unit (around 12sq. feet).

If approved, a commission based on sales will be paid to you by RedBox.

So, what does it cost you? Well the unit will not cost you, what will is your location real estate, and you might need to work out a deal for power the unit. Any problems with the unit will be taken care of by the mobile techs of RedBox.

What does this mean to most…
Big box/ anchor stores will be the first ones to have these units Example: WalMart, Krogers, Ralphs, 7-11, and such. Don’t be discouraged if you can pull off attracting heavy traffic, well it is in the favor of both RedBox and you… Once again we see LOCATION, Location, location… hope this helps…”

Even if you don’t have the foot traffic described from that anonymous person who left the comment, go ahead and apply anyway, and please come back and leave a comment about your experience! Thanks!

  2. Hello, I would like to find out how to get a job or a redbox. I do not have a store front to offer. But I know one that will qualify. I want one closer to where I live, ( there are a lot of Apartment Complexes near-by) I went into the local 7-11. they don’t want to maintain a Red Box themselves, I asked them if I maintained it would they be willing…To that he nodded! ; – )

  3. We are looking into getting a red box for our store. We have been opened for 1 month and people are asking if we are getting one. We average 300 to 500 people a day.

    • You are not going to be anywhere near the required foot traffic for a Redbox. On top of that, Redbox is not installing machines at single locations. They want to do business with people with who have multi-unit stores.

  4. I am interested in finding out if you would consider adding a Redbox machine to a housing community? We have hundreds of homes and a Community Pool area and would LOVE to have a Video Rental Kiosk near home.

  5. I am interested adding a Redbox DVD kiosk.The grocery store grand opening is next month.They will be building more stores around it . This is a perfect location. New business park/grocery store.

  6. I was talking to some friends my husband to be one of them, and they were telling me of how there is nothing to do no entertainment at all at Marion Military Institution in Marion Alabama. The thought of a Red Box on base would be apealing, also in that same town there is another college Judson an all women college that has the same problem. The town is a poor town, so no one ventures in to the town from the colleges, they pretty much stay on their own turf. This has been the same for 30 to 40 years, is there some way you can get a Red Box to them.

  7. How much money do you really need to open a redbox

  8. how much is the commission pay? Anyone here please with a redbox tell us the average pay and hassles of having a redbox. thanks!

  9. I don’t get why people are posting that they want a redbox in their town. That’s not the purpose of this site. I’ve searched for hours trying to get info on what it takes to get a redbox at my stores and all I see is retarded comments about how they know the perfect place to put one. The funniest part is when they list their business, like the person who created this entry has any need for this.

  10. If you are looking for a dvd rental kiosk to be placed in your store or location contact DVD Now. They are much better then Redbox and will go to stores that are not chain stores.

  11. Hey Fred,

    Maybe you should get a life & quit patrolling this site like you own it. Now that’s funny!

  12. We have a good location for DVD retal nothing else in town. a very busy gasstation with subway in Dexter MI 48130 cloesest redbox is atleast 5 miles away. we think it will work. We want to know how to get a redbox. we can provide prime location in the store. traffice average 1200 customers a day.

  13. Pls send info regarding the franchise startup. Price, where do the dvd’s come from, servicing units. Interested in both dvd & game kiosks.

  14. I decided to look into getting a Redbox for my storefront. If you are a small business owner, its a deadend.

  18. I live in a rural community and a Redbox is much needed. We don’t have a movie theater so the people have to drive out of town just to see a movie. I know that a Redbox will definitely be a success in our town. I’m very interesting in being a part of Redbox.
