Credit Card Acceptance

CCI highly recommends upgrading to our EMV solution. EMV offers more secure transactions for your customers and provides an easier path towards PCI compliance.

LaundryCard supports two credit card processing platforms; Authorize.Net for traditional magnetic stripe credit cards and Octopi (formerly Monetary) for also accepting EMV/contactless payment methods.

For v8 stores, credit cards will continue to work without any changes. Older v6 or v7 stores using the PCCharge platform must upgrade their credit card implementation to continue to accept credit cards. PCCharge is no longer supported.

Accepting EMV / Contactless payment methods

LaundryCard also supports EMV (chip) and contactless transactions with a credit card solution upgrade.

For more information regarding EMV go here: Accepting EMV and contactless payments with LaundryCard

NOTE: Locations that currently accept credit cards via Authorize.net or PCCharge and wish to switch to upgrade to EMV will need to change to CCI's preferred merchant processor, currently only CCI's preferred processor is supported!

Advanced Point of Sales

Customers with Advanced Point of Sales running TMS software will need to contact CSI for assistance with credit card acceptance, as TMS does not use Authorize.Net.

Upgrade Process

Customers interested in upgrading should call CCI (866-860-1660) to coordinate the upgrade.

  1. CCI will assess your current system and perform a series of checks and tests to ensure that your system meets the requirements.
  2. Once the assessment is complete, CCI will generate an upgrade quote.
  3. Once payment for the upgrade is received, the CCI technician will schedule the upgrade. Appointments are scheduled on a first come first serve basis.
  4. Someone with keys to the X-Changers must be present during the upgrade. The upgrade can take between 1-2 hours. During the beginning of the upgrade there will be a short period of time (5 minutes or less) where customers will not be able to start machines. Currently running machines will continue to run. Please be prepared to use your Super Card to accommodate their business.
  5. The upgrade will be delivered on a DVD prior to the scheduled install date.  This DVD also contains a clean copy of the LaundryCard software that can be used to restore a computer in the event of a hard drive or computer failure. DO NOT LOSE THIS DVD.
