Can I choose my own credit card processor?
Yes, you can.
You are not required to use Wash-Dry-Fold POS for your merchant account; you are free to use the merchant service provider of your choice as there are several that are compatible. We feel that we offer the best choice, however, due to our full-service setup and support, 100% hardware compatibility with our POS software, competitive processing rates, use of the excellent CardPointe platform, and the convenience of a one-stop-shop solution for your laundromat’s point-of-sale system needs.

A fully integrated EMV chip card PIN pad and a credit card processing merchant account through Wash-Dry-Fold POS are included by default with our laundromat POS system. However, you can opt out of this if you do not intend to accept credit cards in your business (i.e. cash-only laundromats) or wish to choose another processor.
The creators of the software we use, Cash Register Express by pcAmerica, have created this handy chart to show all of the fully supported credit card processors as well as important information regarding the update in payment processing hardware for EMV compatibility. There is also a way to integrate other processors not shown on this list but it takes an extra couple of steps. You will need to contact pcAmerica to learn more about this.
Although Wash-Dry-Fold POS can offer advice about choosing a credit card processor and setup, it will be up to you to select the processor of your choice. You are not locked into any one choice. HOWEVER, we cannot and will not offer support or installation for payment processing solutions other than our own. If technical support is required for other payment solutions, you will need to contact your merchant services provider and/or pcAmerica technical support.
