Prineta Awarded Winner and One of Kansas City’s 25 Best Small Businesses

We are very proud to announce that Prineta has been selected as a winner and one of the top 25 small businesses with fewer than 25 employees in the Kansas City-area in Thinking Bigger’s 17th Annual “25 Under 25” Business Award.
http://ithinkbigger.com/2018-25-under-25-winners/

According to the Kansas City Business Journal there are 50,729 businesses in the KC area!

The research from Thinking Bigger Business Media indicates that in Kansas City metro area, around 83% (or 42,105) of those businesses have fewer than 25 employees.

According to our math, that makes Prineta and the other winners as 0.06% of all KC small businesses! 

We were curious about that stat, so we double-checked the statistics:

The Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council also had a similar statistic that “firms with less than 20 workers made up 89.4 percent of businesses”.

The US Census Bureau also had a statistic stating 89% of business have fewer than 20 employees:

Congratulations to all of the 24 other winners!

GenMega ATMs for Sale: Wholesale Prices, Pre-Programmed

Wholesale Pricing

Because of the large yearly volume of ATMs Prineta sells, we receive special wholesale pricing from the manufacturer and therefore we are able to offer the most competitive pricing for GenMega ATMs of any company out there. We want to work with you long-term and handle your transaction processing services, therefore we pass-through this wholesale pricing to our customers. For customers who user our transaction processing there is absolutely no markup on the ATM we sell you. You read that correctly – we do not make even a dime from selling you the ATM, so long as we handle your transaction processing.

 

Pre-Programmed

Other companies sell ATMs then make you pay wild amounts to have someone come out to the site and program the ATM for you. Or even worse, they make you figure out how to program it yourself! Don’t worry about hassling with the configuration and settings on your brand new ATM, we’ll handle that for you. Upon the purchase your new ATM, we’ll have you fill out a form specifying your preferred settings including surcharge fee, communication type, withdrawal limit amount, bill denomination type, welcome screen message and more. Once we get that information back from you we’ll have a certified GenMega ATM technician program the ATM for you, before the ATM is shipped out.

ATM Technician Maintenance

Factory Direct – Two Year Parts Warranty

Because we get our ATMs direct form the GenMega factory in Hawyard California, you can ensure that your ATM comes with GenMega’s 2-year parts warranty. If any part breaks you can ensure the part will be replaced by GenMega entirely free within a two year period. Other companies will buy the ATMs and let them sit, then sell years later for a lower price and voided warranty.

GenMega 2500: The Most Popular ATM

The GenMega 2500 model is our best selling ATM. Almost 90% of our customers purchase the 2500 model due to its affordability and reliability. This is the ATM we recommend for most merchants and small business owners.

Other GenMega ATM Models

Aside form the GenMega 2500, we also sell other models such as the Onyx, Onyx-W, GT3000, GT5000, Onyx-W 2K, and C6000.

GenMega Onyx

The GenMega Onyx is an “upscale” and slightly more pricey version of the GenMega 2500. With all the same reliable parts as the GenMega 2500, it comes with an improved all-black (hence the name Onyx) and glossy appearance. It comes with a larger screen and touch screen buttons.

Onyx

GenMega Onyx-W

The GenMega Onyx-W is the most popular wall-mounted ATM on the market. It’s small, nice-looking, simple to operate, and easy to install/mount. The GenMega Onyx-w is a great ATM for businesses with very little space.

 

 

GenMega GT3000

The most popular through-the-wall ATM unit is the GenMega GT3000. This ATM comes with a 2000-note cassette and has a slim, modern profile for use on almost any wall. It’s also more affordable than most bank-grade through-the-wall ATMs.

Get an ATM For Your Cash-Only Business

Are you a small business owner that’s getting tired of the endless fees from credit card processing and thinking about transitioning into a cash-only business? You’re not alone – here at Prineta we receive calls and inquiries almost daily from merchants just like you looking to ditch their merchant account and go cash-only with an ATM on-site.

You’re Not Alone

Many think that cash-only businesses are uncommon. In fact, research by Intuit GoPayment Survey shows that approximately 55% of US small businesses do not accept credit cards.

 

55 Percent of US small businesses do not accept credit cards and are cash-only - Intuit GoPayment Survey

You may know of some businesses that are cash-only, you may even be a customer. With some types of businesses it is more common than others to be cash-only.

Some businesses that are commonly cash-only:

  • Barbershops & Hair Salons
  • Nail salons
  • Spas & Massage Places
  • Bars, Taverns, Pubs
  • Dispensaries
  • Tattoo Studios
  • Laundromats
  • Strip Clubs
  • Nightclubs
  • Small Restaurants
  • Pizzerias
  • Donut Shops
  • Coffee Shops & Cafes
  • Vietnamese & Chinese Restaurants
  • Ice Cream Shops

Endless Credit Card Processing Fees

Accepting credit cards usually costs the merchant around 3% of the purchase and can often come with all kinds of other fees. Depending on the merchant account provider you’ve chosen, you may recognize some of the following:

  • Setup Fees
  • Interchange Reimbursement Fees
  • Terminal Fees
  • Payment Gateway Fees
  • PCI Fees
  • Annual Fees
  • Early Termination Fees
  • Monthly Fees
  • Monthly Minimum Fees
  • Statement Fees
  • IRS Report Fees
  • Online Reporting Fee
  • Network Fees
  • Incidental Fees
  • Address Verification Service (AVS) Fees
  • Voice Authorization Fees
  • Retrieval Request Fees
  • Chargeback Fee
  • Fraud Accountability Fees
  • Batch Fees
  • NSF Fees

The list goes on and on…

For some merchants this is a big decision. For others who are drowning in fees it’s a no-brainer. Some business owners just look at it as the cost of doing business, but others seek to find another way.

Won’t I Lose Business If We’re Cash-Only?

The truth is that it’s a cost-benefit analysis – You may lose some customers at the beginning, the “if you don’t like it go somewhere else” types. If you calculate how much you would be paying in yearly card processing fees compared to the amount of yearly revenue you missed out on from a few disappointed customers then you’ll have your answer. Most businesses will retain the majority of their loyal customer base. These customers who enjoy the products or services will be there to stay, regardless of payment types accepted. 

Get an ATM Installed On-Site

The best way to offset any customer loss due to a cash-only transition is to ensure customers have quick access to cash via an ATM. Since many people nowadays don’t carry cash, when people need cash they almost never have it. Having access to an ATM solves this issue. Almost every customer who wants to pay with credit card will also have a debit card and can use the ATM to get cash. Sending them down the street to the gas station or bank branch to use the ATM often results in them leaving and never coming back. Getting an ATM installed on-site ensures that the customers always have quick access to cash when they need it.

Free Full-Service ATM Placement

Almost all cash-only businesses qualify for our Free Full-Service ATM Placement program. With this program, Prineta will place and operate an ATM we own at your business, entirely for free! There is no cost at any time. All we need is an electrical outlet and about 2 square feet of floor space. In many cases we can place the ATM for you before you eliminate the card terminal so everything goes as smoothly as possible when you do switch.  

Call Prineta today at 1-800-951-9533 to speak with a representative about getting an ATM placed.

Buy and Operate an ATM Yourself

The other alternative is to buy an ATM and operate it yourself. With ATM purchase you keep 100% of the revenue generated from when people pay to use the ATM. If you own and operate the ATM yourself you have more flexibility, for example, you can set a $0.00 surcharge fee so customers will not have to pay to get cash. You can also set a high withdrawal limit per transaction, so customers can take out up to $600 instead of the normal $200 per transaction amount.

Cash-Preferred and Semi-Cash-Only Businesses

Give Cash Discounts or Charge Extra for Card Purchases

Some stores aren’t willing to eliminate credit card payments entirely, but are still tired of the fees and want to reduce the amount customers paying with cards. Some merchants add an extra 3% to the price for card payments. Others make the customers aware that you prefer cash payments by putting up a sign offering a discount for cash payments. Another option is to have a minimum purchase requirement for credit card payments – any purchases under $20 must be paid with cash. Full-service ATM placement are also usually available to these businesses, but it will largely depend on foot traffic. Let customers know that using the ATM supports your business.

 

Semi-Cash-Only Businesses

Some businesses have select products or services that can only be paid for with cash, while the majority of the other products/services can be paid for with credit cards. One example is a business who sells lotto and regulations require they can’t be paid for with card. Another example is how many salons, spas, and restaurants accept card payments for the main purchase but require cash payments for tips.  This simplifies the accounting since often the waiter or stylist will be the one who has to take a cut if tips are paid with card.

FREE ATM PLACEMENT

The most popular service we offer is our free full-service ATM placement. With this program, Prineta will place one of the ATMs we own at your business or establishment and have one of our local ATM technicians manage everything related to the ATM’s operation including the cash loading, maintenance and servicing. This is all entirely free. There is no cost at any time and the best part: we pay you a commission every time someone uses the ATM!
There is also a 50-50 merchant-loaded ATM placement in which we place one of our ATMs at your business for free, then instead of having our cash loader refill the ATM, we set you, the merchant up as the cash loader. If you load your cash in the ATM instead of having our guy do it, we’ll give you a bigger cut of the revenue!.
Both ATM placement options are for qualified locations only. Contact us to see if your business qualifies.
