Give us a call and we’ll not only let you know if we think you have a good location but we’ll let you know what you can expect to make from ATM processing with your Machine.

When ATMs first became popular in retails stores, they were designed to do processing via standard dial-up operation via a phone line, however most ATMs now come equipped with an RJ45 Jack for Ethernet ready connections to an ISP (internet Service Provider) for processing. And now, wireless service is available that makes the need for a phone line a thing of the past.

  • Processing ATM transactions via our new wireless system gives you remote processing capability for any ATM anywhere. Now you can turn most late model ATM Machines into a Mobile Cash Machine. Install an ATM in an enclosed trailer (ask us to tell you how), bring them to fairs and weekend events. Now you can set up an ATM Machine where no phone services was previously available. Simply ask us if a wireless device is available in your area for ATM processing, the monthly cost is less than a phone line.

The Ethernet connection on ATM machines also allows retailers with Internet service to process ATM transactions without adding a phone line. This saves the monthly additional phone line expense so processing internet transactions is fast (under 8 seconds) compared to processing phone line transactions which can typically take at least 20 seconds to complete processing before the machine dispenses cash.  Internet transaction processing is a great option for busy locations.

The typical ATMs you see in retail stores, hotels, restaurants, night clubs and all over the US are considered Free Standing ATM Machines and all can be setup with ATM Depot processing services regardless of where you purchased your equipment. Some of the popular brands from the late 1990’s through today have been:

Converting Leased line ATM Machine Processing to Dial-up or Internet – (ask us how to lower your processing costs)

The Dial-up Interface has been used for decades, but with a controller that connects an ATM designed for leased-line operation to a processing host computer over a standard dial phone line you can eliminate the high cost of a dedicated leased line and the capital investment in modems, which dramatically improve unit profitability.

Proprietary technology, initially released in 1995, has undergone substantial refinement and supports ATMs nationwide. Its advanced design includes features that alert the processor, acting as host, when operational malfunctions occur in the ATM, lowering downtime. The following Lease Line ATMs are supported for processing at lower costs.

  • NCR
  • Fujitsu
  • Diebold

ATMs must be programmed for Diebold 911 emulation and Burroughs TC500 protocol to take advantage of lower processing fees.

Accounting and Management Reporting

The ATM processing center operates an extensive settlement and accounting system that assures prompt, accurate delivery of funds to the owner of the ATM as well as detailed monthly processing reports. Processing reports are done down to the transaction level on a daily basis via the Internet.
