Have change for a $20? We didn’t think so.

With the rise of convenient payment options, cash is no longer the preferred way to pay for everyday expenses. Today, consumers are swiping their debit cards to buy groceries and scanning their phones for an afternoon latte. Many stores now provide coupons and incentives that can be scanned straight from a mobile app.

Thanks to mobile payment technology, many consumers choose to walk around with no cash in their wallets and expect to make purchases just about anywhere – including the laundry room. Through a new partnership with PayRange, a leading in-app mobile payment service, WASH Multifamily Laundry Systems now offers a mobile payment solution that allows residents to pay for laundry through an app. And no quarters are required!

Adding the convenience of mobile payment to your laundry rooms is a great way to foster loyalty, improve resident satisfaction and increase revenue. With WASH managing your laundry room, adding the technology to your equipment is easier than you may think. Here are three things to know:

  1. Installation is easy. WASH will install the PayRange BluKey™ on your existing washers and dryers, which will allow residents to connect to the machines via the PayRange mobile app using Bluetooth technology.
  2. Payment is safe. Payment information is never sent or stored by PayRange or WASH, which makes in-app payments the safest way to pay a machine. Once the app is downloaded, residents add funds using a debit or credit card, or if they prefer, using a wallet they can choose from Apple Pay, Android Pay or Masterpass. Also, refunds are handled easily within the app.
  3. Residents are happy. The PayRange app, available within the App Store and Google Play, has great reviews – with over 19,500 ratings in the App store and an average of 4.7 out of 5 stars. One user comments: “Finally! I no longer need to make sure I get enough change from the bank to do laundry. This app is awesome – it works quickly and accurately with no problems at all… makes laundry a whole lot easier.”

Other benefits of mobile pay:

  • Less service call management due to a reduction in coin jams and overfilling machines
  • Easier refunding by crediting the resident’s account with a push of a button or coupon code
  • Laundry discounts and special promotions
  • No additional cost to your residents for using the service
