GenMega ATMs for Sale: Wholesale Prices, Pre-Programmed

If you’re looking to purchase a GenMega ATM, you’ve come to the right place. Prineta is a master dealer/distributor of GenMega brand ATM machines. We sell GenMega ATMs at wholesale cost, delivered anywhere in the United States.

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.

Cash Only Business Sign

 

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.

OUR ATM SERVICES

We are a full-service ATM company, offering a variety of ATM-related services.

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.

Sell Us Your ATM Portfolio or Location – We Buy ATM Routes

Are you thinking about selling your ATM portfolio, route, or just an individual ATM location? Perhaps you want to sell the entire route and exit the business, or maybe you just want to get rid of a few locations that are outside of your service area and causing too much extra driving.  Whatever it is, Prineta can help. We buy ATM routes large and small, whether it’s one location or hundreds. We can buy ATMs anywhere in the country. We can buy the entire portfolio and manage it, or we can just do the cash loading.

If you’re thinking about selling, don’t hesitate to contact us. 

Map of ATM machine route portfolio

 

Why are you selling?

Selling an ATM location or portfolio usually doesn’t mean that the business was a failure. Most owners create profitable businesses and make great income form their portfolio, but usually there decision to sell all or a portion of their portfolio is based on other factors, including:

  • Can no longer keep up management or maintenance.
  • Involved in other business interestes/ventures.
  • Reduce size of portfolio to optimize company resources
  • Reduce or eliminate time spent driving and cash loading
  • Family emergencies or health issues
  • Old age or retirement
  • Liquidation needs
  • Circumstances beyond your control

Unload the entire portfolio, or just a few ATMs

If you’re looking to get out the business entirely, we can buy the entire route from you and take over every aspect of the operation. Many times, operators are just looking to get rid of one or a few ATM locations in their portfolio. This can be a good decision for ATM operators who want to maximize their business operation and resources. Sometimes ATM operators will acquire locations way outside of their normal service area and this will cause them a  huge headache. Selling off a few locations can often dramatically increase the overall efficiency of your business operation.

Continue to own the ATM(s) or continue to load the cash.

If you’re wanting to maintain some ownership or involvement in the operations of your ATM(s) and don’t want to get out of the business entirely, we can work with you. If you want to maintain ownership of the machines, then Prineta can just load the cash only. If you’d like to continue loading, but don’t want to deal with the maintenance of ATM-ownership any longer, we can buy the ATM’s from you, and you continue to load them.

Where can Prineta buy ATM locations?

We can buy ATM locations anywhere, nationwide in the US and Canada, and also Puerto Rico. Prineta operates other ATMs in almost every metro area and so chances are we already have other ATMs near your area.

 

Sell to a reliable and honest ATM service company

We are not trying to get rich off of you selling your route. We simply are looking for opportunities to grow our business. If the deal isnt’ fair for both parties, then we wouldn’t make an offer, it’s that simple.

We have a good reputation in the ATM industry, ask just about anybody in the industry and they might know about us, we regularly attend the ATMIA (ATM Industry Association) and NAC (National ATM Council) conferences and meet other ATM business owners. We’re very good at working with other ATM operators and providing flexible solutions to create win-win situations.

In addition, we can guarantee that if you sell to us, it will also be fair to merchant who’s hosting the ATM in their business. We are a reliable company with good customer service, we maintain an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. It’s important to feel confident that you’re selling to a company that will properly manage the ATMs, pay the site owners on time and the agreed amount and provide good customer service.

How does the value of the route get determined?

We want to give you fair market value for your ATM portfolio, but how do we determine what a fair selling price is? Calculating the value of your route can be quite difficult since ATM machines value depreciates, technology changes, and since routes are valued based on so many different variables including:

  • Net cash flow
  • Hours and costs required to run the route
  • Capital / amount of cash required to fill the machines
  • Distance of ATMs from each other
  • Contract length
  • Machine type
  • EMV capability of machines
  • Type of businesses the ATMs are in

To determine the selling price of the route a 3-4 multiple of the yearly cash flow/net income, plus assets is typically used.

How much can I make? What’s my cut?

The site owner gets 35% of the profits from the machine. The Illinois Video Gaming Act mandates that 30% of the profits are paid to the state of Illinois and also requires that the profits are shared equally between the terminal operator and the establishment/retailer. Therefore the remaining 70% is split 50/50 between the Terminal Operator and the Establishment and each party gets 35%

How much space is required for an ATM machine?

Most standalone retail ATMs take up about 2 square feet of floor space (the “footprint”) and are around 4 ½ feet tall.

Below are the dimensions for our two most used and popular ATM models.

 


GenMega 2500 Dimensions:
Height: 56.3” (4 feet, 8.3 inches)
Width: 15.8” (1 foot, 3.8 inches)
Depth: 22.3” (1 foot, 10.3 inches)
Hyosung 2700 Dimensions:
Height: 52.3″ (4 feet, 4.3 inches)
Width: 15.7″ (1 foot, 3.7 inches)
Depth: 18.4″ (1 foot, 6.4 inches)

Space needed for door to open

It is important to remember that there will need to be some additional space in front of the ATM and just to the front-left part of the ATM so the door can swing open and it can be loaded with cash.

ATM-door-swinging-open-diagram

ADA Compliance

Section 707 of the Americans with Disabilities Act  requires that ATMs are readily accessible to individuals with disabilities. The clear ground/floor space in front of the ATM at a minimum must measure 30 inches by 48 inches. The figure below is a helpful representation of space needed for access.

handicap access areaADA Compliance ATM Machine Space

Still not enough space? Consider a wall-mount ATM.

If space is extremely limited at your establishment and you don’t even have room for a retail ATM, consider getting an ATM such as the Onyx-W which can be mounted to a wall or countertop. This ATM only takes about 3 ½ feet of wall space.
