There are 6 different models of Rowe rear and front load changers that will accept credit cards and dispense tokens.
According to the American Banking Association, changers that accept
credit cards must dispense tokens, otherwise they are acting like ATMs
which is not allowed.

system and credit card processing. You can accept MC, Visa, Am Ex,
Discover and dispense tokens for one low flat fee. The low flat fee is

tokens or coins.

of Rowe changers that use this display tell us that patrons that try to
cheat them by saying the changer took a $20 and only paid $5 disappear,
because they see the changer knows what denomination of bill was used.
other recycling changer has this capability and no other changer can
take a bill in one side and dispense from the other because this changer
is intelligent and knows the inventory levels of the recycler and
dispenses from the side having the most bills!!!
Phil Tutt, the owner of Mr.Sudz in Conroe, Texas has used Rowe changers for over 20 years and recently installed the new Rowe model 400 rear load changer with MEI bill recyclers to make it easy to break twenty and ten dollar bills into fives and tokens. When a customer inserts a five, it is stored in the bill acceptor’s recycle barrel. When the next customer inserts a ten or a twenty, that customer receives fives inserted by the previous customers. This system dramatically reduces the amount of cash and coin operators need in bill changers.
Phil says, “It is now easy for customers to break a twenty and get 3 fives and 20 tokens rather than a pocket full of 80 tokens. The new Rowe changer keeps people from leaving the site and prevents drive offs.” Customers tell Phil they keep returning to his carwash because the equipment always works and he is frequently on site to handle questions. In fact, several customers have become “unpaid attendants” reporting to Phil when something needs attention or if an undesirable person is on site. Phil believes this is the result of being friendly and engaging with customers, plus there is a mailbox on the pump room door for customers to deposit notes about equipment repairs and refunds.
