The impacts of COVID-19 continue to reveal themselves, and of particular concern to those who manage multi-housing property and manage a community laundry room is the current nationwide coin shortage. Americans are limiting cash payments to reduce person-to-person contact, less coins are finding their way into economic circulation, and so we see a coin shortage.

As a multi-housing property owner or manager, you certainly want to provide your residents with the commercial laundry services they need and prefer, so you may find yourself needing to pivot in response to the shortage. We can help. Washco’s cutting-edge technology allows you to offer the best solutions for your shared laundry space, including cashless payment acceptance when you need it. Check out a few of our most popular coinless options:

Credit Card Payment Acceptance with Washco’s KioSoft CleanReader Ultra

The Washco machines equipped with this technology securely accept both stripe and EMV (chip) cards through WiFi connection, with multiple authorization options. Complete with built-in Bluetooth, it’s also perfectly integrated with the Washco-Pay Mobile app, which makes tracking payment history simple.
