Frequent Asked Questions


How much revenue can I expect to generate from an ATM placement?

Your business will receive 15 - 20% of the surcharge revenue. 

For example, at $2.50, your business will receive $.50 (20%) on every transaction made where a surcharge is collected.  For example, if your business receives: 

100 transactions = $50  

200 transactions = $100  

300 transactions = $150 

500 transactions = $250 

Depending on the monthly volume, we can also set up tiered commission payouts.

When do I get paid?

We will provide a check for your payment. ATM 101 will also provide a monthly report via e-mail or drop off a copy of the report in person, as preferred.

Are there any monthly charges or hidden fees for my ATM placement?

Nothing. With our revenue sharing program, all of our fees are taken out of the transactions. Even if there is low transaction volume we will not charge you. Revenue sharing production depends on location and volume.

What are the requirements to qualify for free ATM machine placement?

Qualifying for one of our ATM machines to be placed at your location is very simple. If the desired location for the ATM is within our service area (San Francisco, Bay Area), just contact us and we'll schedule a free consultation at your location. If your premises has adequate foot traffic and passes our basic Safety & Security guidelines, please send us an email to set up an appointment.

My company accepts credit cards- Is it still worthwhile to place an ATM Machine?

Yes, ATM machines are not merely a method of providing people with cash. ATMs are also a marketing platform that drive customers to a location, and increase foot traffic and sales within your business. Per statistics, having a ATM machine on premise in a business can increase retail sales by up to 50% of the amount withdrawn from your ATM. This means that if someone withdraws $60 from an ATM machine, which is the average withdrawal amount in the USA, they are likely to spend up to $30 of the $60 withdrawn.

Who is responsible for machine repairs, maintenance and filling the machine?

Our technicians monitor the machines online, 24/7 in real-time. You never should have to call us to fill the machine, as we use forecasting formulas to efficiently determine the cash needs of the business for the week, month, and for special holidays. We work around the clock to make sure the ATMs are always filled. If there is a service issue, you can direct your customers to call the 800 number on the front, or call us directly, and we will come and fix the issue in a timely manner.
