Standalone Declining Balance/Draw Down process is one of ARBA’s Standalone 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 employee convenience. Often seen by students as a valuable benefit, cashless payment methods in the form of student 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. Even though the standalone cashless payment process is not fully integrated with your current cash register operations since it is not an ARBA POS system, the ARBA cashless payment module provides your students with the ability to make purchases with a convenient payment option.
Multiple student ID badge types are readable at the cashless payment hardware you receive from ARBA, including proximity, bar code, and magnetic stripe. If desired, students may also be looked up manually by name or student number.
