If you are a bar or nightclub owner, having an ATM on the premises is not just an extra perk for your customers — it is a necessity for the nightlife industry in general, boosting profits while keeping customers inside having a good time inside your establishment. ATMMachines.com has been providing ATMs to nightclubs and bars for nearly two decades through sales and other unique programs. No matter which path you choose, having an ATM available for customers will benefit your business and your bank account.
Benefits of ATMs in Nightclubs and Bars
Considering that the success of your nightclub or bar depends on customers staying and spending money, there’s simply no downside to making an ATM available to them. Here are some ways having an ATM machine can benefit your establishment:
- Customers can easily pay for cash-only expenses like cover charges and coat checks.
- Customers do not have to leave your establishment to get cash, which means less temptation to hang out somewhere else.
- Your establishment attracts new customers.
- You reduce your credit card processing fees due to an increase in cash sales.
- Over 60% of cash withdrawn from an ATM in a nightclub or bar is usually spent at that location, which may lead to an increase in profits.
- You earn additional revenue from transaction fees.
Nightclub and Bar ATM Options
There are a number of simple ways for bar and club owners to get an ATM machine inside their places of business. Let’s explore your options now.
Buying an ATM
The average ATM machine only costs $2,000 to $2,500 these days, which means more and more nightclub and bar owners are choosing to buy their own machine. If you choose this option, you receive free ATM processing, programming, and training. You also have access to 24/7 technical support and real-time online monitoring and reporting. Every dollar earned from surcharges is deposited directly into your bank account on a daily basis.
ATM Placement Program
Owning an ATM may not be right for everyone, but you can still enjoy some of the benefits through our Nightclub and Bar ATM Placement Program. We deliver and install one of our own ATMs at no cost to you. We even handle all of the maintenance and keep it stocked with cash. Meanwhile, you earn a percentage of the revenue without actually having to do any of the work, freeing you up to run your business.
ATM Partnership Program
A third option to consider is our Nightclub and Bar ATM Partnership Program. As with the Placement Program, we handle delivery and installation, but keeping the machine stocked with cash is your responsibility under this option. You earn half of the profits from surcharges, and that money is deposited into your account daily.
