The Declining Balance/Draw Down process is one of ARBA’s Cashless Payment Solutions with student ID scanning that helps your cafeteria, coffee bar, store or other retail area speed cashier checkout time, increase student participation and revenue, and enhance student convenience. Often seen by students as a valuable benefit, cashless payment methods in the form ofstudent declining balance/draw down accounts allows students to present the student ID badge they already carry for the cashless purchase of food, beverages and other retail items in any of your cafeteria, coffee bar, company store, gift shop or other retail areas. The cashless payment process is fully integrated with your ARBA cash register operations, and takes less time per transaction than a cash payment.
Multiple student ID badge types are readable at the cash register, including proximity, barcode, and magnetic stripe. If desired, students may also be looked up manually by name or student number.
