If Airwallet does not show up when you search, check: 

  • Did you spell the name correctly?
  • If it still does not show up, it may be because you have an older smartphone. Airwallet only works with iPhone 5s and newer, and Android version 8 and newer. No support for Windows Phones.

If you get a new phone number or do not want to use Airwallet anymore, then the app must be deleted. If you want to delete your user you can:  Log in ➜ Settings ➜ My profile ➜ Delete profile.

On most machines you can select it again in the app and send it a new start signal free of charge the first 15 minutes after your purchase. 

If this isn’t an option please contact Airwallet at  +45 7870 9999 or [email protected] and have your transaction ID or phone number ready, you can find the transaction ID on the receipt in the app.

  • If you cannot find your receipt, it is probably because you have only booked the machine but have not paid for it yet. You only pay for the machine when you start it.
  • If you need a refund, the amount will be returned to your account within 5-10 business days.

If you cannot connect to the machine, it often has something to do with the Bluetooth connection from the phone to the machine. To solve that problem you can:

  • Make sure you are in the laundry. You can only pay for machines within a 10-30 meter radius.
  • Make sure the machine is ready to receive payment by closing the door and selecting a program.
  • If you have an Android phone and it cannot connect to any of the machines in the laundry, it may be because the phone has reached its limit of how many devices it can connect to. The problem can be solved by restarting the phone.
  • Make sure the machine is powered. For example, check that there is light in the display on the machine.

If it did not solve the problem, contact Airwallet at [email protected] or +45 78 70 99 99.

The machine is occupied in the app, but is not currently used, why?

This could be because:

  • The list of machines in the laundry is updated once a minute.
  • Some machines only become available again when the previous wash is finished and the door is opened.
  • If the Airwallet system is brand new in your laundry, it may be due to an installation error. Therefore contact the owner of the laundry or Airwallet at [email protected] or +45 78 70 99 99.
  • Professional machines will automatically be available again after 2 hours even if it is installed incorrectly. Otherwise, try turning off the entire machine for 10 seconds. Then both the machine and the Airwallet device will be restarted, and be available again.

There can be many reasons why a machine does not work. Some problems can be solved by turning off the machine for 10 seconds. This will restart the machine and the Airwallet device.

If this doesn’t solve the problem please contact us at +45 7870 9999 or chat or email at [email protected]

3D secure is an additional layer of security that is sometimes used with digital card payments. It is not requested on all payments, but on selected payments, similar to when you sometimes are required to enter a PIN code on a card terminal. 

The payment must either be approved with: MitID, SMS+code from NETS or 3D Secure supported banking apps.

  • We recommend that you use the MitID app.
  • If you do not have the MitID app, you can create a password with NETS at nets.eu/3DS.
  • If you are not shown  MitID as a verification method, it is because your bank has not registered that this is possible. This may be due to:
    • You do not have the MitID app on your phone yet
    • You have just installed the MitID app and it has not been registered in the bank’s system yet.
    • You are not the owner of the card
    • The bank has not activated 3D Secure for your debit card. Contact the bank to do this.

If you are in doubt about why you cannot choose MitID when you need to confirm your payment, you can contact your bank.

3D secure can be difficult if you haven’t tried it before. Therefore, we have made two guides that show how to make a payment if 3D secure is required on a payment. 

Payment with SMS+code in Airwallet

  • If you experience errors when paying with SMS + code, it may be because you have not created your password at NETS yet, or because you enter the SMS one-time code twice in a row. You will first be asked about the one-time code you received via SMS, and then for your own password for NETS.

Ordinary household appliances are not perfect for commercial laundries. This can result in differences in how long the machine calculates and how long it then actually spends.

  • The differences can occur when the water is harder, there are more clothes in the machine, or the clothes are dirtier than expected.
  • We recommend buying a little more time than indicated in the display on the machine, to be on the safe side. You can always stop the time, if you bought to much. You will only pay for the time you actually used.
  • If the machine is interrupted in the middle of a cycle, you can always buy the remaining time. The machine will continue from where in the program it was interrupted.

On a household machine, you buy a given time where you have the machine available. If you have bought 2 hours and the first wash only takes 50 min, you can always start a new wash in the period you have bought. If you are done with the machine, you can always stop the time and only pay for the time you actually used.

With an Airwallet Ark subscription, you can wash up to X times. Your number of starts per. month will be reset to the number you have included in your subscription when your subscription is renewed.

You can change your payment method by logging in ➜ settings ➜ payment method ➜ tap on your current card.

Here you get the option to choose a new payment method.

Which day the money is deducted from your bank account depends on: if it’s on the weekend, holiday, which card provider you have, and your bank. Therefore, it may vary a bit when the money is deducted from your account.

If booking times or rules have changed, it is because the owner of your laundry has changed it.

You can deselect the booking system when Airwallet is installed. Ask the owner of your laundry if you want a booking system. It can be activated in the dashboard – and it’s free.
