Circumtec supplies hardware, software and support to assist car wash businesses to be run efficiently and profitably. Our ‘one-stop-shop’ range of cashless payment solutions cover all your on-site services, including automatic and self-serve car washes, dog washes, vacuums and fragrance and vending machines.

The days of car washes only needing to cater for cash purchases are long gone. Today, more purchases than ever are made with credit or debit cards, and this trend will continue to grow. Circumtec’s range of cashless payment services provide more convenience to car wash customers and increased profitability to business owners, with secure cashless transactions removing the possibility of theft from cash-operated machines.

Payments can be made by swiping, inserting or using payWave or PayPass with credit or debit cards, as well as pre paid, loyalty and fleet cards. Any Visa, MasterCard or debit card can be accepted.

Automatic Car Washes

Your automatic car wash customers will be delighted to be able to pay with a credit or debit card, and this convenient cashless payment option will encourage repeat business and grow your sales. Profitability will grow too, and not just from the extra business. Cashless payment options remove the possibility of theft, providing you instead with secure cashless transactions.

Self-Serve Car Washes

Give your self-serve car wash customers even greater choice and flexibility when they use your car wash with our Circumtec cashless payment system.

This system allows customers to wash the car at their own pace! The bank “pre-authorises” a $15 purchase on their credit or debit card. An initial credit of $5 is uploaded to the wash. As the time remaining reduces to one minute, a further $1 is added, increasing the equivalent wash time. When ready the customer presses the “stop” button on the card reader and is only charged for the time used.

With a fixed price option, the most common customer complaint is that they have to pay the whole amount again if they don’t manage to complete the wash within the given time. The incremental system is very popular, as customers only pay for the amount of time they actually need.

Our data shows us that the incremental system provides a greater return, with an average spend of between $9.80 and $11.40 when customers pay using their credit card.

Dog Washes

These days, dog wash machines need to offer more than just cash payment options. More purchases than ever are now made with credit or debit cards, and this trend is expected to continue with strong growth. Convenient and secure cashless payment options increase sales and remove the possibility of theft. Circumtec’s cashless payment services give dog wash customers extra convenience – while also providing improved profitability to business owners.

Vacuum, Fragrance and Vending Machines

Your car wash customers will be encouraged to use more of your services once they realise they can use a debit or credit card with your vacuum and fragrance machine, and other vending machines too. Circumtec provides a ‘one-stop shop’ when it comes to equipping all aspects of your car wash business with state-of-the-art, efficient and profitable cashless payment systems.

Payments to Business Owners

Circumtec charges a monthly service fee for the SIM card and server usage that provides the credit card facility and telemetry functions for you. We have an approved aggregation system that means there is no requirement for you to open a Merchant or Gateway account and pay the associated fees. With our system, you simply nominate a bank account for the funds to be paid into and they are transferred from the ANZ Bank to your account on a weekly basis.

Our systems are fully maintained, all software upgrades are free, and all hardware comes with a standard 12-month warranty.
