Softcard enables laundry service without the money

Softcard cleans up with new service

24 SEP 2014

US payments venture Softcard has struck a deal with USA Technologies whereby consumers can make NFC-based payments on the most up-to-date laundry machines.

Under the agreement, consumers using Setomatic Systems’ new SpyderWash Elite laundry machines enabled with NFC and SmartTap mobile commerce technology will receive a 25 per cent discount on purchases made via the Softcard app.

By the end of 2015, Setomatic Systems said that more than 25,000 SpyderWash Elite laundry machines, supported by USA Technologies’ ePort Connect Service, will support NFC mobile payments.

USA Technologies, through its ePort Connect Service, is the exclusive provider of comprehensive cashless payment services for Setomatic’s SpyderWash system.
