Short Answer: Remove the possibility of vandalism by using a low-cost mobile laundry payment solution like ShinePay.
If you are a victim of vandalism you might be facing a wave of increases in your laundromat business insurance premiums. This can happen when you have coin-changer machines & laundry machines broken into time & time again. If you have multiple mats in the same location the increase in premiums can be exponential.
Laundry Card Systems use to be the only viable solution until you saw the price-tag. Now there is a reasonably priced option–smartphone laundry payments.
Smartphone laundry payments leverage a users phone for the expensive stuff–internet connectivity, screen, and payment processing. This allows you to offer customers credit card payments at the low-price of $149/machine + 3.9% flat transaction fee on your new & old laundry machines.
The best part is you don't need to make a drastic change. ShinePay works in conjunction with coins or as a stand-alone payment solution. You can choose to go all coin-less and eliminate all vandalism or you can make that decision down the road. It's your business and smartphone laundry payments put you in the drivers seat.
