Launching or Expanding an ATM Business: 7 Essential Tips
Listen to this article.

Whether you’re starting an ATM business from scratch or looking to upgrade your current model, following these key steps can position you for success:

1. Create a strategic plan. Decide if you’ll offer full-service, processing only, or a mix. Identify your niche (bars, hotels, stores, etc.) and target locations. Set goals for margins, volume, and geographic coverage. Consult experts as needed.

2. Understand the industry. Thoroughly research how ATM businesses operate. Talk to processors, merchants, retailers, consultants – anyone with relevant experience. Absorb all the knowledge you can.

3. Establish banking relationships. Given regulatory changes, meet with bankers to discuss your needs and set up accounts.

4. Vet processors. Research various ATM processors based on interchange rates, web portals, technical support, and other factors meaningful to you. Choose a reliable partner.

5. Use written agreements. Have merchants sign multi-year contracts clearly stating ownership, surcharges, revenue splits and terms.

6. Standardize equipment. For simpler maintenance and part swapping, stick with ATMs from one reliable manufacturer.

7. Plot efficient routes. Cluster machines geographically to minimize service drives and costs.

Even with digital payment trends, cash remains key. By following these tips when launching or upgrading your ATM business, your “cash machines” can profit well into the future. Let us know if you need any advice! or call us at 941-226-3943
