multi-housing payment systems
electronic payment systems

At ESD, we have engineered and manufactured payment systems for multi-housing laundries for more than 45 years. Multi-housing laundries are laundries located in apartment complexes, duplexes, and dormitories – anywhere central laundries serve multiple residents. ESD offers a variety of payment systems to meet your specific needs, location, and budget. Our mechanical coin slides and electronic card-operated payment systems are compatible with nearly all washers and dryers on the market!


ESD electronic laundry payment systems allow residents to operate laundry equipment using a combination of cards (credit, debit, EBT, and loyalty) and coins, depending on the system selected. Laundry operators gain access to a superior laundry management system, MyLaundryLink, which allows online monitoring of income and usage by machine. MyLaundryLink can also display reports, equipment programming, and make vend price adjustments. Meanwhile, some systems allow residents to monitor their complex's laundry equipment online, before they ever get to the laundry room!

ESD's flagship product, the SmartCard Electronic Payment System is simple to use and set up. This system is the favorite of multi-housing laundry operators and is in place at hundreds of thousands of locations worldwide. Residents, use a SmartCard or MoneyCard (incorporates a small, embedded computer chip), instead of coins, to start laundry equipment. There are no on-site or off-site databases. All necissary information is stored on the SmartCard.
