Finger on the Pulse: Discover Which Pulse Mode Is Best for Your Automated Business

Laundromat, car wash, massage chair, kiddie ride, and claw machine operators have one thing in common: the pulse protocol. Pulse machines are designed to receive electrical pulses and to activate according to these pulses. This technology opens the door to many pricing possibilities which help business operators drive more sales. Card readers can be configured to reflect a specific pricing model which will appear on their screen, making it clear to customers how much the product or service costs. This article will take a deep dive into the four different pulse modes; single price, multi-pulse, multi-price, and pay-as-you-go, and will help operators understand which mode is best for their business.

Pay-As-You-Go Mode

What Is Pay-As-You-Go Mode?

Pay-as-you-go mode enables customers to pay for the exact time they use the service. Customers tap their cards or mobile phones on the card reader to initiate the transaction, and a set payment amount is preauthorized. When a customer wishes to stop using the service, they hit “stop” on the screen and are charged for the exact amount of time that they used the service.

What Are the Benefits of Pay-As-You-Go Mode?

Pay-as-you-go mode allows added flexibility for customers that other modes don’t. With pay-as-you-go, you only need to set up and manage one time-based pricing option, and you leave it up to customers to decide how long they want to use the service for. This simplifies operations on your side and helps you easily upsell customers.

What Machines Is Pay-As-You-Go Best For?

Pay-as-you-go is most popular for car washes, massage chairs, kiddie rides, and amusement machines such as prize or claw machines.
