Coin operated laundry has long been an industry staple, but customers migrated to credit cards decades ago. It’s tough to stomach the cost of upgrading your equipment and system, but we’ve got good news for you – if you use Maytag Commercial or Industrial Laundry Equipment, you can update coin operated machines to accept credit cards!
Why Choose Coin Over Card
It’s Easy for the Customer
Tapping a card is easier than carrying and counting up spare change. People already use cards for most purchases – your laundry should be no different.
It’s Easy for You
Your customers won’t have to count change – and you won’t either! Stop fiddling with coins and wasting time driving to the bank, upgrade to a card system that automatically deposits the money straight into your bank account, and lets you track revenue with the click of a button. Removing coins also means you aren’t as vulnerable to break-ins.
There are a few reasons why card operated laundries stand to make more than coin operated ones. One – studies have shown that customers usually spend more when they can use cards then when they use cash. Two – card reading systems let you change price easily, offer discounts, and respond to supply and demand so that you can keep your business profitable and your customers loyal. And three – you’ll save time and money on operational costs without the hassle of coins.
