The Vending Machine appeared on the 6th day of the Player Appreciation Week 2015. Using this item allows players to sell items, even if they are offline by putting them in the machine and setting a price for the item in World Locks. Vending machines accept both World Locks and Diamond Locks as payment.
If a machine runs out of stock it will show "OUT OF ORDER" message, changes texture and becomes unusable by players. The item price will be still displayed if there is not enough stock for a player to buy specified amount of items for 1 World Lock but some stock is still inside.
The vending machine is subject to many scams, so all players should read the content of a vending machine carefully before purchasing an item. To reduce the number of vending machine scams, the developers have tweaked the vending machine such that:
- The player which has changed the price on the vending machine says what has been changed in the chatbox.
- The default number of items you see when you buy is 0.
- Pictures of items has been added to prevent misreading.
- Trade confirmation screen has been added.
- You need to be directly in front of the machine to purchase something.
- You cannot buy from a vending machine placed in a public locked area.
- You cannot break a vending machine placed in a public locked area.
- The limit for a vending machine is 5000 (it is possible to reach 5199).
- Only the owner of the World Lock is able to add, remove or change the price of items in the vending machine. Admins will view the same screen as regular players.
- Everything in the vending machine must be emptied before it can be smashed.
During Player Appreciation Week 2017, a new feature was added which displays a sticker saying "OUT OF ORDER" if a vending machine is out of order, as well as adding a lock icon on the bottom right corner of the vending machine block to make it easier seeing if there are any earned World Locks in the machine.
During Player Appreciation Week 2018, a new feature was added which made it so the vending machine displayed what the item looks like. If the vending machine is out of order, it would have a warning sign. This eliminated the use of Display Blocks and Open Signs.
- If the player does not have enough World Locks to afford the items in the vending machine, a message will display saying: "You can't afford that many!"
- If the player tries to buy more items than there's available in the vending machine, a message will display saying: "There aren't enough available to fulfil your order!"
- If the player tries to buy a negative amount of items in the vending machine, a message will display saying: "NEGATIVE, DOES NOT COMPUTE"
- If the player sets the price as negative or more than 20,000 World Locks (200 Diamond Locks), a message will display saying: "Well, that's a silly price."
- Attempting to break the vending machine with items inside will display a message saying: "Empty the machine before smashing it!"
- If the player tries to put a World Lock or Diamond Lock in a vending machine, a message will display saying: "No, no, no!"
