Laundromat Payment Tech
It is increasingly common to see customers opt for technologically based payment systems. In fact, a current survey demonstrated that only 11% of the populace lean towards utilizing cash for purchases. This holds true in the laundry industry where many laundromats are adopting technologically innovated cashless payments systems, that include the PayRange Inc. mobile innovation solution that enables customers to pay through their phone, SpyderWash credit card payment system, and other card payment systems.
TECHNOLOGICAL PAYMENT TRENDS
Laundromats who had previously used a coin exclusive payment system are now installing card payment systems from reputable companies, such as ESD, Card Concepts, and USA Technologies to provide customers with a more convenient and safer method payment alternative to the outdated coin or cash-based payments.
PayRange Inc., a leader in mobile payment innovation for machines, has produced an innovative solution that enables laundromats operators to upgrade existing machines within 2 minutes to accept mobile payments. The PayRange payment system is available for Speed Queen and Maytag machines. Jetz Service recently roll out PayRange's new technology in the Midwest. "We especially like the eureka feeling PayRange has provided to make Jetz feel like we are stretching our wings in what we see as a truly transformational application of technology in our space," said Scott Schenk, the Chief Financial Officer for Jetz Service Co., Inc.
SpyderWash System in conjunction with USA Technologies’ ePort Connect platform provides laundromats customers with an innovation that enables contactless, credit or debit mobile payments.
The SpyderWash Payment System was created in 2009 and allows laundry customers the option of using coin, credit or debit cards, a loyalty card, RFID contactless credit cards, or NFC Mobile Wallets to pay for their laundry on the machines with the system.
TECH THAT ENABLE INNOVATIVE PAYMENT SYSTEMS
There are numerous technologies and apps that enable laundromats to operate technologically based payments systems. These include
mobile apps using Bluetooth technology and secure digital wallet that makes it possible for customers to pay for their phones without a credit card. One such app is LaundryPay, coming soon to Android and iOS. LaundryPay will allow the user to track machine availability
giving the customers the ability to plan their laundromat visit. In addition, the customer can pay through the app. Finally, the app provides smart notifications with wash notifications by LaundryPay.
Laundry monitoring systems- these systems enable the operator to keep tabs on the exact measurement of water usage, electricity and payment history etc.
PayRange Inc. mobile innovation solution, SpyderWash credit card payment system, and other card payment systems are some technologically innovated cashless trends that assist the customers of laundromats to pay at their convenience, either at the point of service or "contactless" by using either card payment systems or mobile app systems.
