Besides banks and convenience stores, gas stations are the most popular places for ATMs. If your store does not yet have one, you are missing out on the increase in profits and revenue, as well as a way to attract even more customers. ATMMachines.com offers numerous ways for gas station owners to provide ATM services at their locations.
Advantages of Gas Station ATMs
Everyone who drives a car stops into a gas station at some point, whether they are driving a few miles back and forth to work every day or taking long trips out of town. They need fuel as well as a place to stretch, grab a snack, or ask for directions. Having a gas station ATM front and center provides your customers with an additional reason to stop and shop at your store. They can easily use an ATM card, credit card, or debit card to obtain cash to spend in the store or to take along with them on the road.
Studies have shown that when customers withdraw cash from an ATM, they are up to 50% more likely to spend some money in the location where the ATM is located. This could potentially lead to you doubling your profits — not to mention the added surcharge revenue you’ll receive from the ATM itself.
Options for Adding an ATM to Your Gas Station
ATMMachines.com offers a variety of options for installing an ATM in your gas station.
Option 1: Buy a New ATM
ATMs are surprisingly affordable. For approximately $2,000 to $2,500, you can own an ATM outright and retain 100% of the surcharge revenue from it. We provide free ATM processing, programming, and training for owners, plus 24/7 technical support and real-time monitoring and reporting.
Option 2: Gas Station ATM Placement Program
At ATMMachines.com, we offer a turnkey ATM placement program that allows you to place an ATM in your business at no cost to you. We provide free ATM placement and installation, and we handle the maintenance and cash supply. You earn a percentage of the revenue from each transaction, and we deposit that money into an account for you daily.
Option 3: ATM Partnership Program
Our ATM Partnership Program requires a little more involvement on your part than the ATM Placement Program, but you keep a larger percentage of the revenue in return. If you take part in this program, you maintain the machine’s cash levels while keeping 50% of the ATM fees.
Gas Station ATM FAQ
What types of ATMs are best for a gas station?
Free-standing ATMs are a good choice for most gas stations because they don’t take up much space and can be moved according to need. If floor space is limited, some ATM models can be mounted on a countertop for easy access — and if there is no room inside the store, there are also ATMs designed for outdoor placement. Take a look at our available ATMs to see what works best for your location.
Where is the best place to put my gas station ATM?
Look for a place in your gas station that is visible, well-lit, and has plenty of foot traffic. The best location might be somewhere near the cashier; for others, it might be outside by the front door. Make sure you also have signage that clearly identifies the ATM so your customers can see it easily. Click here for more ATM placement tips.
What happens if my ATM needs maintenance or repair?
When we own the machine, as with the ATM placement program or ATM partnership program, we take care of all repairs and maintenance needs free of charge. If you own your machine outright, we provide reliable and affordable ATM repair services for your convenience.
How can I start my own ATM business?
Many business owners are so impressed with the revenue stream from their ATM that they decide to operate multiple machines as a side business. ATMMachines.com has developed a comprehensive online course based on our years of experience in the ATM space. It covers all you need to know to start and run your own ATM business.
