If you are an entrepreneur, you are likely always looking for new ways to make a little bit of extra money. An ATM machine offers several ways that you can do this. For example, you can earn commissions from the sale/lease of the machines and other related equipment; you earn money by providing maintenance/service to individuals that own the ATM machines; you can generate more purchases in your business by giving customers access to their cash. and you can charge the ATM users a fee for using your atm setup Harker Heights TX.
Of course, you must start by establishing a business. If you already have one where you can install your ATM, you will already have an indirect revenue increase just by having it there to facilitate customer purchases. On the other hand, perhaps you just want to get started with selling/servicing ATM machines. If this is your situation, you are going to need to form an LLC, file articles of incorporation with your state, register for an employee identification number, and obtain your business license.
Another option would be to approach a variety of ATM manufacturers and obtain selling agreements that allow you to be a distributor of their machines. You are going to be required to sign a seller’s agreement, which will most likely require you to sell/lease a particular number of ATMs each month in order to retain your status. It’s best if you work with more than one manufacturer because there’s typically not one that will have a solution to each and every situation you will come across.
A third option for making money with ATM machines is by partnering with a finance company. Most of the time, machines are leased instead of being bought outright, which allows the owner to see the cash flow from installation of the ATM without having to put out a lot of cash to get started. If you’re not able to finance your own purchase, you’re going to need to partner with a finance company that specializes in this type of equipment.
If you own ATMs, another option would be to sell/lease the machine to a business owner/merchant and allow them to keep the fees or work out an agreement to share the revenue that occurs. This will allow you to place the ATM in the location of the business, which gives the business owner the benefits of having an ATM.
