ATM Purchase Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a basic ATM cost?

The standalone ATMs you see on this page cost anywhere from $1900-$2600 for the basic setup, listed above. Prices are updated monthly so prices vary, please contact us via our contact form or at 1-800-420-1736 to get an accurate price quote.

For those wanting upgraded features such as: larger cash cassette (2000, 4000, 6000 or 8000 note cassette), bigger screen (up to 12″ and touchscreen features), upgraded Kaba Mas lock, lighted topper, video topper etc.. the cost of the ATM can rise up to $7,000.

How is the ATM installed?

Keep in mind that the installation of the ATM is separate from the programming. Prineta will program/configure the ATM before it is even shipped out, so the hard part is over and it’s ready for operation right when it arrives. The “installation” refers to the bolting/securing of the ATM to the floor. It’s basically just putting four anchor bolts in the ground, like securing a safe. Prineta used to include installation with all ATM purchases, adding-in the cost involved with having our technician bolt the machine down. After having continuous requests from customers to ‘opt-out’ of the install and do it themselves for a lower cost, we decided to lower the cost and leave the install up to the customer.

So here are your options:

  1. Do It Yourself (Free)
  2. No Installation (Free)
  3. Hire a Contractor/Handyman
  4. Hire a PJG Communications ATM Technician
What do I do if I'm having problems with the ATM?

All ATM customers have access to 24/7 technical phone support. You can simply call our tech hotline and troubleshoot with a certified ATM technician over the phone. With newer ATMs, many of the problems you would encounter are simple fixes.

How much money can you make if you own and load the ATM?

With an ATM purchase, you make 100% of the surcharge fee paid by the ATM users and you can set the surcharge fee to whatever you want.

Your monthly revenue will depend on 2 factors:

  • What the ATM surcharge fee is set at.
  • How many people will use the ATM every month.

If you set the surcharge to $3.25 (the average for the hotel and lodging industry) and process 300 transactions per month, then you would earn about $1000 per month in surcharge revenue. Most good locations can make their original investment back in three to six months. Not a bad investment if you are willing to put in the time loading the cash.
