Snap Laundromat at Taringa has internet-enabled the washing machines and dryers, which means our customers can pay for self service laundry services with their smartphones or mobile tablets!
We’re proud to assert that Snap Laundromat is the first self service Laundromat in Australia to offer customers this type of payment convenience.
Three months ago, Snap founder Ian McFarlane established technology startup, Eziwash.
And using Eziwash is Ezi! You simply access the service by first registering an account and logging into the Eziwash website. No downloads are required. Top up your account using the PCI compliant credit card payments available through payment provider Ezidebit. Then operate any of the internet enabled machines using your mobile phone or tablet.
“It’s no longer a drama if you don’t have any cash handy to wash your doona,” Ian said. “Laundromats are very traditional, relying on coin payments for services.
“We felt it was time to evolve the way our laundries accepted payments, so that we could better meet the demands of today’s online and mobile consumers.”
“Today, when I watch customers at the laundry using this technology so naturally and as part of their every day life, I can’t help but think how long it has taken for something so simple to be a reality. Digital innovation can provide a new level of payment convenience, and it’s exciting to be a part of it.”
Eziwash provides payment convenience in an age where technology and smart phones are part of everyday life. Many industry trend sources confirm that Australian consumers are increasingly opting for digital payment methods over cash. See the report released by the Australian Payments Clearing Association.
