Yes, you can.  If you want to bring your own processor, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • We can typically match or beat any actual application you get from another processor.
    • It’s important to get the full and actual application in order to make a comparison (not just the advertised rates).
    • If you go through us, we will setup and offer support. Wash-Dry-Fold POS does not offer setup or support on third party solutions.
  • Most other processors will be unable to provide an EMV integrated solution — which is the most secure, functional, and reliable solution.
  • Most other processors will have two alternatives:
    • Non-integrated EMV pinpad (employees type in the prices to a totally separate EMV reader)
    • Integrated Mag-stripe Reader (more functional, disables EMV acceptance

For Non-integrated EMV pinpad:

  • If you already own a standalone credit card reader terminal, it is extremely unlikely that it will be able to integrate directly with your Wash-Dry-Fold POS system.
  • The few exceptions to this rule are listed on pcAmerica support.
  • If you’d like to attempt to integrate a listed EMV pinpad, only pcAmerica support (800-342-5729) can help with this.

For the Integrated Mag-Stripe Reader:

  • You’ll need a VAR sheet from your merchant services provider to connect their service to your Wash-Dry-Fold POS system.
  • If your bank or processor cannot provide a VAR sheet for pcAmerica Cash Register Express, then there is no way for us to connect them.
  • Some payment processors may require a DataCap account to connect; Wash-Dry-Fold POS does not provide this service.
  • Your primary resource for this process will be pcAmerica support (800-342-5729).
