Credit Card Laundry Payment Systems

Customers pay with credit/debit cards for nearly every transaction in everyday life, from purchasing gas for a car to buying food at the grocery store. Even medical practices now accept credit card payments.

Using a laundromat’s washers and dryers is a customer necessity. Yet if customers must search for quarters, they may skip or delay using your services or spend less money when at your laundry. A coin-only laundry makes it very difficult to track your sales when you are not on-site.

The solution is credit card-operated laundry machines like SpyderWash, which allow customers to use credit/debit cards and other convenient payment methods to purchase the laundry services they want and need.

How Do Laundry Card Readers Work?

Laundry machine card readers like SpyderWash are straightforward devices for most users. Simply input quarters in the slot built onto the machine or swipe or tap a credit/debit card to pay for your wash or dry. Consumers can also use mobile devices via NFC mobile wallet payment methods like Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay from smartphones and smartwatches.

The SpyderWash reader connects to a nearby high-speed internet hub via Bluetooth technology. The connection uses state-of-the-art encryption to protect the customer and business while allowing for real-time credit authorization.

We believe credit/debit card acceptance is a “must” for all laundry machines moving forward. These systems are profitable for the laundromat owner while being convenient, user-friendly, and simple to use for the end user. Also, no attendants are required to teach your customer how to use the system, as they pay the same way they do at almost every other store.

Benefits of SpyderWash

Around 191 million Americans pay with credit cards—almost all of these individuals also do laundry. In 2020, Mastercard found 8 out of 10 customers use contactless payment. Laundromats that take credit cards benefit by accepting the most widely used, preferred, and convenient form of payment.

There are several more significant benefits for credit card-operated washers and dryers:

  • Reporting: The web-based SpyderWash software records all transactions for easy tracking.
  • Reliability: Customers trust the reliability and convenience of the credit card process every day.
  • Security: Less cash on-site prevents theft. Laundry card readers also use payment tokenization to convert data to a token number for transmission so data cannot be stolen. The credit card process helps protect against fraudulent payment.

Credit card payment systems for laundromats, like SpyderWash, can bring convenience to your customers and safety to your transactions.

A user-friendly mobile payment app also allows customers to track their laundry progress online and on their cellphones and search for available machines before visiting your facility.

Can you convert coin-operated laundry to a card-operated system?

Yes! You can incorporate credit card payment systems into your existing commercial washing machinery. All newer machines are compatible with external card reader devices and retrofitting solutions are also available for older ones. We have even converted washers/dryers from 30 years ago! 

Setomatic Systems is pleased to assist in bringing your laundromat into the 21st century by installing credit card readers on your existing commercial laundry equipment. Our card readers offer greater convenience for modern consumers who rarely use cash, so converting your coin-operated laundry can be a profitable endeavor.

Keep in mind if you do keep coin, SpyderWash will fully track your coin boxes and send email alerts when at capacity.

Absolutely! Customers can continue to pay at each laundry machine with quarters or by a credit or debit card from Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express. SpyderWash also allows users to create an in-house loyalty card unique to their laundry service.
