The standalone declining balance and drawdown processes are some of ARBA’s foremost standalone cashless payment solutions. Offered along with student ID scanning, these processes help your operation speed checkout time, increase student engagement and boost revenue, and enhance cashier and other employee convenience. Seen by students and staff alike as a convenient and desirable benefit, cashless payment methods that allow students to present the identification that they already carry for the cashless purchase of convenience items like beverages, food, and more will be a welcome addition to your on-campus operation. Even if this standalone cashless payment process isn’t fully integrated with the cash register system you currently use – as it won’t be if that system is not an ARBA POS system – the specialized cashless payment module still offers your students the opportunity to purchase items that they want and need with a convenient, cashless payment option that requires no extra materials on their part.
Multiple styles of student ID badge are accepted via the specialized cashless payment hardware included with the ARBA POS system. This includes proximity and bar code models, as well as magnetic stripe badges. The system also allows for manual student search of ID number recall.
