Coins, Cards, or Mobile Pay — Which Laundromat Payment System Is Right For You?
There are many different ways to pay for your laundry at the laundromat. You can use coins, cards, or mobile pay. But which payment system is right for you? Let's take a look at the pros and cons of each system.
Coin Operated Payment Systems
A great thing about coins is their availability. Just about everyone has access to coins — if your laundromat is in a neighborhood where not everyone has a credit card, coin washing machines are a good choice.
Although coin-operated payment systems are still popular, they have a few downsides. Security is a big concern, as people can steal your coins if they're left in the machine. Another downside is that it can be a breeding ground for bacteria if the device is not maintained properly. Finally, vandalism is always a possibility when dealing with public machines.
Card Payment Systems
Many customers routinely use credit cards as their primary payment method. By equipping your machines with a credit card system, you'll still have these customers choose your store.
But if you are opening a laundromat, card systems may fall into an awkward middle between traditional coin systems and a modern smartphone payment system like PayBlox. More and more consumers are predicted to move towards mobile payment recently.
Mobile Cashless Solutions for Shared Laundry
Mobile cashless solutions are a great way to simplify laundry payments for shared laundromats. These systems typically involve scanning a QR code to select your preferred washing mode and then paying for your wash using your credit card via PayPal. Once you're done, you can leave the laundromat without worrying about carrying any change or cards with you.
