Decide if your business is a good match for an ATM.
1. Do you want to be paid exclusively in cash?
2. Are there any other businesses near you that are paid predominantly in cash?
3. Is your ATM going to be the only one within close walking distance from your business?
4. Do businesses in your industry commonly have an ATM at their location?
5. Are your customers requesting a cash back when they pay with their debit card?
6. Do you have customers frequently asking you where the nearest ATM is?
7. Is your business a gaming venue?
Determine what type of an ATM machine you want for your business.
There are two ATM models: a lobby style of ATM and a through-the-wall ATM. Most ATM models come with two types of safes: Business Hours and Level 1. The main difference between the two safes is the thickness and strength of their walls and the difficulty of opening. Business hours safe is perfect for an ATM placed well within the interior of place of business, while Level 1 safe is better suited for outdoor, through-the-wall ATMs. The weight for the lobby style NH 2700 CE is 120 kgs, while for the through-the-wall version of the same model is 325 kgs.
Our ATMs are very secure.
All of our ATMs are built to withstand all common threats.
The NH 2700 CE locks range from standard electronic locks to Cencon and S&G locks. The Cencon is the standard ATM lock on this model, which also is a standard lock for most new ATMs in the Australian market. The Cencon lock includes dual access control, one time combinations, encrypted electronic keys, alarm connectivity, and internal power source. Third-party cashing service providers require that ATMs they service upgrade to Cencon or software-based system like S&G.
The NH 2700 CE comes with two cassettes, each capable of storing 2,000 notes. For most customers, this note capacity is more than enough.

Estimate how quickly you will repay your investment in an ATM from your ATM earnings.
Let us assume that you have done your basic calculations regarding the potential performance of your proposed ATM location and that you are ready to invest time and money in buying and operating an ATM. There are many ATM models in the Australian ATM market. There are only a handful ATM models that are actually good value for money for Australian SMEs. ATM machines in this more affordable price bracket cost anywhere between $7,000 (for lobby style ATM) to $12,000 (for through-the-wall ATM) when bought new, although there are sometimes excellent compliant second-hand ATMs that you can pick up for $4,000. An ATM doing 500 cash withdrawals a month could easily net $1,000-$1,100 for its owner each month, which means the ATM will be fully paid in 7 months. The life of our new ATMs is easily between 8-10 years, since they are designed to perform 10,000 transactions a month. This means that for the life of the ATM you can easily net a profit of $113,000.
