Best Locations for an ATM

ATMs can increase revenues significantly for retailers, financial institutions, the hospitality industry, gaming industries, and more. Let’s look at some of the types of businesses, industries, and locations where ATM placement works best.

  1. Banks
    Banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions are among the first places people look for an ATM. Many people who have a checking account or another type of bank account will visit their local bank at all hours to make a cash withdrawal. Learn more about bank ATM management.
  2. Nightclubs and Bars
    Nightclub and bar owners who have an ATM machine available typically see significant extra income — both from surcharge fees and the fact that customers spend more money in the bar when they have access to cash. Learn more about ATMs for bars and nightclubs.
  3. Hotels
    Hotel guests almost always need to know how to find ATM machines for various reasons. Providing an on-site ATM is a great way for hotel business owners to generate extra income from transaction fees and encourage guests to spend more money in the hotel itself. Learn more about ATMs for hotels.
  4. Grocery Stores
    Many customers prefer paying cash for groceries rather than using a credit card or debit card. Others like the convenience of grocery stores being a “one-stop-shop” for their needs while they are out. Providing an on-site ATM at a grocery store satisfies both needs and improves most store owners’ profit margins. Learn more about grocery store ATMs.
  5. Gas Stations
    Gas stations and convenience stores are among the most common places where people look for ATMs. Providing access to cash is a great way to encourage more sales in the store while helping travelers on the go. Learn more about ATMs for gas stations.
  6. Festivals and Events
    At large events and festivals, attendees are always in need of extra cash. By providing ATM access, you’ll encourage them to spend more money on vendors while keeping them on the premises longer. Learn more about festival/event ATMs.
  7. Casinos
    The longer you keep customers in the casino, the more money they spend. Giving them quick access to more cash is one of the best ways to do this. Learn about casino ATM placement.
  8. Cannabis Dispensaries
    The burgeoning legal cannabis industry relies heavily on cash transactions due to banking regulations. Providing an ATM on-site almost ensures increased sales and profits. Learn about ATMs for marijuana dispensaries.
  9. Bingo Halls
    ATM machines are highly profitable at bingo halls for the same reasons they work at casinos — they keep customers playing for longer. Learn about ATMs in bingo halls.
